What Does Insulation & Air Sealing Do For My Home?

Insulation and air sealing help prevent heat and air from traveling in and out of your home. In the winter, they act like a thick winter coat, keeping heat indoors. In the summer, they’re more like the walls of an ice chest cooler, blocking heat from getting in.

Many Maryland homes have some insulation, but not enough, and many also have holes and gaps that let air in and out of your home. Even small air leaks can result in lots of energy waste. This means that your heating and cooling systems have to work overtime, wasting your money.

Signs Your Home Needs More Insulation & Air Sealing

  • Expensive monthly utility bills
  • Indoor drafts
  • Ice dams on your roof
  • Unhealthy indoor air (allergies, frequent sickness, asthma)
  • Temperature changes between your first and second floors
  • Frozen pipes
  • Cold floors in the morning

If you experience any of the above issues in your home, adding more insulation and sealing holes and air leaks can make a substantial difference. These home upgrades are long-lasting, yet many Maryland families don’t realize their homes are in poor condition and could benefit!
