Winter Warmth: How Proper Air Sealing Can Slash Your Energy Bills

Are your energy bills out of control this winter? Unfortunately, this is a truth for many homeowners throughout Central New York and the surrounding areas. Air leakage and poor insulation are some of the leading causes of high energy bills. In fact, ENERGY STAR reports that 9 out of 10 homes are under-insulated!

Energy Savers can help you save on your energy bills with our comprehensive insulation upgrades and air sealing services. When combined, these two services provide optimal comfort, health, and efficiency benefits for your home throughout winter and every season of the year.  

Why Air Seal & Insulate? 

Insulation and air sealing might seem like they offer the same protection from the outside elements, but they each have unique qualities that make them work best when done in tandem. Insulation prevents heat transfer in and out of your living spaces, keeping heat in during the winter and out during the summer. Air sealing, on the other hand, prevents unwanted air transfer, which can have an impact on your energy bills, home comfort, and indoor air quality.

When you combine insulation and air sealing, you’re enhancing the performance of both upgrades. This comes with many whole-home benefits, including:

  • Lower energy bills – The Department of Energy reports that properly insulating and air sealing your home can save you up to 20% on your heating and cooling costs. 
  • Improved home comfort – Say goodbye to drafty rooms and inconsistent temperatures because insulation and air sealing help keep your home’s conditioned air where it belongs—inside.
  • Better indoor air quality – Air sealing and insulation help keep pollutants and pests from entering your home, which can wreak havoc on your indoor health. 
  • Ice dam prevention – Air leakage and heat loss are the leading causes of ice dams in the winter, which can lead to numerous problems for your home, like roof damage, water leaks, and more. 
  • Moisture control – Excessive moisture often leads to mold growth and other indoor air quality or property damage issues. Insulation and air sealing work together to keep moisture from infiltrating your home.
