Air Sealing and Weatherization
Unpredictable New England temperatures can be felt within your home as well as your wallet. Our job is to locate and seal drafty areas to decrease the amount of fuel it takes to heat and cool your home, lowering your bills and environmental impact. Other benefits include a reduction in outside noise, less allergen and pest infiltration, and better control over problems caused by humidity and moisture.
Using caulking and foam to fill cracks in the foundation and installing door weather stripping are just a couple examples of air sealing you can expect to discuss with your energy specialist. Our auditors find that the majority of homes, old and new, could benefit from additional insulation. Insulation provides resistance to heat flow. It takes less energy to heat and cool when a home is more resistant to this exchange. During your home energy assessment a Cape Cod Energy Solutions energy specialist checks the location, type, and thickness of your existing insulation.
The energy specialist notes which areas in your basement, attic, crawlspace, etc. need improvement. They also ensure there is adequate ventilation so combustible gasses aren’t being trapped indoors and causing hazardous living conditions. Again, most improvements are eligible for incentives, which lower your portion of the installation cost.
Your home deserves a thorough air sealing and weatherization assessment. Contact the associates at our company to get started.
