January 09, 2023 at 23:18
iFoam Insulation has been meeting the insulation needs of those in Denton, TX, and the surrounding areas for many years now. In that time, they have established a solid reputation for doing such insulated-related tasks as applying blown-in insulation, doing residential attic retrofits, and adding insulation during new residential construction to go along with insulation removal and insulating roofs. One of the lesser-known but equally important insulation services this company offers is a task that’s called ‘air sealing’; a service that’s most often performed in attics and crawlspaces. It offers so many benefits to those homeowners that get this energy-saving service done, it is something that the company thought was worth describing in more detail.
A representative of this reputable Denton insulation service contractor says, “We have come to find that many people are not aware of the importance of air sealing their homes and others may not even be aware that companies such as us offer this money-saving service. Once home air sealing has been done, it benefits a homeowner by stopping the free transfer of interior and exterior air in the areas where it's been performed. This helps keep comfortable heated and cooled air inside a home where it belongs and keeps out unregulated, comfort-disrupting outside air. This results in lower heating and cooling costs and home air that is kept in a more comfortable state”
The company representative continued by stating that those in the business believe that air leakage in a home can account for as much as 30% of that home’s heating and cooling costs. That’s why air sealing is so important, but it offers many more benefits than just helping save money on energy bills and keeping those inside a home more comfortable. This includes making homes greener because furnaces and air conditioners no longer have to work so hard. When these appliances run for less time in an energy-efficient home, it lowers a homeowner’s carbon footprint substantially.
Temperature regulation in a home also becomes easier when air sealing has been done to the areas of a home, such as attics and crawlspaces, that often promote the free transfer of inside and outside air. He says that stopping airflow in and out of a home has another major benefit that is often overlooked. It’s the fact that when outside air is allowed into a home it most likely has moisture content in it. This often results in the growth of mold and mildew on a home’s structural surfaces and contents. As these damage-promoting fungi start to multiply they can lead to costly home structural repairs, ruin contents stored in attics, and irritant the respiratory systems of the occupants of a house. They even bring with them the potential to let foul-smelling air permeate throughout a home.
The iFoam Insulation representative went on to say that air sealing becomes even more beneficial when combined with blown-in or spray foam insulation. He added that some might even refer to this energy-saving combination as insulation on steroids. That’s because if air sealing is done properly, when it's combined with good insulation this completely stops the free transfer of interior and exterior air in the areas where these steps have been performed”
The company representative says that they are always willing to discuss with a homeowner over the phone or in person how air-sealing critical spaces in their home will benefit them. When they meet with a person in their home to discuss performing air sealing, they are also willing to answer any questions a customer has regarding their other important insulation services. He also mentioned that their crews that perform air are led by knowledgeable, experienced, and certified techs that have learned how to do the job in a way that produces optimal results.
