THE IMPORTANT ROLE OF AIR SEAL

Air sealing your home or business is as important to securing energy loss as insulation. In fact, you always want to air-seal your house or office before you place insulation over it or you could lose significant R-value.

Air sealing is a comprehensive service that also involves eliminating cracks, crevices, and leakage points around windows, doors, vents, and all other openings in your buildings — or anywhere else for that matter.

The principle is simple: if you’re heating or cooling a leaky house, you’re wasting money and needlessly increasing your carbon footprint. Creating an air seal solves those two problems, plus it makes your building more comfortable to live in.

At Pure Eco, we have been air-sealing homes and businesses for many years. We have the experience to optimize the efficiency level of your building through air sealing and/or insulation and other related service. Contact us today by calling (877) 870-7998 for a free consultation and a free air seal quote!

THE BENEFITS OF PROFESSIONAL AIR SEALING SERVICES

The most obvious benefit of air sealing your building will be seen in the lower monthly power bills you’ll soon be enjoying at your home.

That’s not all, though, as your indoor living spaces will heat/cool faster and stay comfortable easier and for longer. Plus, you’ll reduce contaminants and allergens in your indoor air. You’ll breathe better and feel more comfortable indoors.

Additionally, air sealing helps reduce moisture buildup, which can help prevent mold and mildew, and damage to drywall, baseboards, roof joists, attic insulation, and more. Moisture also creates a heavy atmosphere that harms your health and home comfort.

Last but not least, air sealing improvements help you take some pressure off the environment and lower our collective carbon footprint.

THE AIR-SEALING PROCESS

First of all, we use a blower door and/or other means to identify air leak points in your place. We may use a flashlight and look for telltale signs such as dusty batts insulation, dirty spots on wall/ceiling paint or on carpeting, or any visible nooks and crannies. Many air leaks are hidden out of view, as they occur because of tiny gaps. Don’t worry, though: our staff has the tools and experience to locate them wherever they are at your house!

Next, we install weatherstripping under exterior doors and operable windows. We caulk around window frames, use foam sealant on larger gaps around windows or baseboards, and use fire-resistant sealants and sheet metal around fireplace chimneys and gas furnaces as needed.

In which places can we install air sealing?

Single-pane windows may need storm windows added to them. In other cases, it may be wise to install new double-paned windows to protect your home from energy loss.

It’s also possible you lack foam gaskets behind your outlets or a cover over your kitchen exhaust fan to prevent air leakage when it’s not being used. We can take care of that too.

While the attic is usually the most important area to make improvements to during air sealing, windows, doors, and vents are also critical and can’t be overlooked.

Fireplace flues are another common problem. The flue may have become warped or ineffective after longtime use. In that case, you can either have it replaced or you can invest in an inflatable “chimney balloon” that safely plugs up the flue when not in use and is easy to remove. If you ever forget to unplug the chimney before using it, don’t worry, because the chimney balloon will automatically deflate.

Air sealing is a very comprehensive service, so we’ll be examining your whole place in search of every possible air leak from overlooked gaps — and we know how to safely, effectively close them off without making a major mess or costing you unnecessary demo and re-construction costs for your residence.

There are often many “hidden” air leaks that are hard to access if you don’t have professional experience and the right set of tools. And there are tricks like caulking along the foundation where cement meets wood, as in the basement, for example. We know how to find and stop air infiltration paths and turn even a “drafty” house into a well-sealed one!

ATTIC AIR SEALING & INSULATING

If you haven’t already insulated your attic, don’t do it until you protect it against air first. Your insulation can lose as much as 50% of its effectiveness due to air leaks that exist underneath it.

If you do have attic insulation but never air sealed, and suspect you may have significant air leaks in the attic, we can help. We can test for attic air leaks and remove insulation as needed, then close off the air leaks and reposition the insulation.

If you want new insulation anyway, because your old insulation is too worn out or ineffective, we can simply remove the old insulation, air seal, and then install the new insulation.

HOW MUCH CAN I SAVE BY AIR SEALING?

The impact air sealing you will gain will vary according to numerous factors, but it’s not uncommon to see as much as a 30% drop. According to the US Department of Energy, the average American home is 100% inefficient due to air leakage.

Where are the greatest leakage points? About 30% of energy is lost through ceilings, floors, and walls. About 20% exits through or around home windows and doors. Ductwork accounts for 15% of such loss, fireplaces for around another 15%, and over 10% is lost around plumbing penetrations. Only a small amount is lost through outlets, fans, and vents.

Close off all the major draft sources, and you keep your conditioned air inside for longer. That helps you keep your money from leaking out of your checking account over to the power company so fast as well!

Our vision at Pure Eco is to make California a more affordable place to live when it comes to lowering your bills and to reduce the negative impact of burning fossil fuels.

We have already had a major impact over the years and are looking forward to continuing to optimize energy solutions for buildings for new clients in the future.

We put together a unique degree of experience, customer service, and concern for the environment. We realize there are many other energy solution and insulation companies and never take our customers for granted.

We have no hidden surprise fees and can give you a close upfront estimation and consultation free of charge.

We are fully licensed, bonded, and insured, and we always put safety first (both yours and ours) in everything we do.

We know how to help you qualify for every possible green program to save you the most possible money. And we know how to protect and insulate your building to keep the necessary energy level.

Pure Eco has a track record of success and a hard-earned reputation for being the best in California communities. We look forward to proving to you our worth and showing you why so many other building owners have chosen us!

WE CAN GET YOU INCENTIVES AND REBATES TO SAVE YOU MONEY!

At Pure Eco, we are familiar with many government-sponsored rebate and incentive programs, one or more of which may apply to your energy efficiency upgrade.

To help lower our “collective carbon footprint,” local counties and cities often invest in making homeowners’ attics and ceilings more energy efficient and “earth-friendly,” just like you do!

There may be federal tax credits that apply when you “weatherize” your home as well, though many of these programs expired in 2011. We can check to see if any still apply, but your best bet is state and local incentives.

You can check for residential or commercial green improvements incentives state by state by clicking this energy.gov link and searching for California incentives. Or, you can check this SoCal link to search for possible rebates and incentives that may apply to your project. Also, check if you are entitled to a free energy audit. 

However, you can just ask our staff at Pure Eco, and given your project’s parameters, we can find out which government programs you would qualify for.

At Pure Eco, we can find ways to save you money upfront and month to month by securing energy levels and lowering your heating and cooling bills. We can assess your project quickly and give you an accurate, upfront estimate and schedule your project start date at the earliest possible date that is convenient to you.

HELP THE EARTH AND YOURSELF AT THE SAME TIME!

Aside from the valuable monetary savings that result from air sealing and insulating your home, there is something even more valuable you can help save with this service: the environment.

These two can go hand in hand. Air sealing may help you get your building LEED certified. With businesses, LEED certification can impress eco-concerned customers, improve your reputation, and send more business your way.

Plus, you can often get federal, state, and local rebates and tax credits for making your residence or business more environmentally friendly. Air sealing service is an essential part of that.

Air sealing is the most sensible step you can take if you want to reduce your home’s carbon footprint and improve its air quality. Without it, it’s like filling a leaky bucket with water and wondering why you’re using so much water. It’s the same way with air, only comfortably heated or cooled air is more expensive and detrimental to the environment than even water waste is.

At Pure Eco, we offer the full gamut of energy conversation services, from air sealing services to installing new insulation, ventilating, attic cleaning, and rodent proofing for your home or business. We can take care of any one of these tasks for you or tackle multiple tasks at once, elevating your home comfort.

FAQs

Why should Pure Eco close the gaps around my house?

Air gaps let heat and cold enter your home. Before Pure Eco Inc. specialists install new insulation around your home, we make sure we close all gaps so that we have no leaks.

We close all unwanted gaps and cracks and we design a ventilation system that will let air flow through the house in a uniform way. Controlled ventilation allows air to circulate in the attic and around your house so that temperatures are smoothly lowered in summer and pleasant in winter.

Air sealing service helps you lower your energy bills and supports insulation systems by closing all the leak spots around your home. Ask Pure Eco Inc. about our air sealing process and the steps involved.

How air leakage is costing you money every day?

All buildings have to “breathe” to an extent. It’s possible for a building to be built too “tight.” But, with most homes — and especially with most older homes — it’s the opposite problem that occurs. 

Optimally, a house should change out all its old air for new air from the outside about once every three hours. In practice, many homes leak air 2 or 3 times as fast as they should, so all air is exchanged every hour or even every half hour. That makes a huge difference to your ability to affordably control the temperature in your home, or even to control it much at all!

Since hot air rises, the worst air leakage tends to occur in the attic and out of upper-story walls. Some air, however, will leak out anywhere and everywhere if it finds a pathway since air expands and moves horizontally as well as rises.

During windy weather, air leakage will accelerate considerably, making it even more difficult and costly to cool/heat your home and less comfortable to live in.

In addition, air leaks can create moisture problems and indoor air quality problems that will affect your health.

What other actions should be taken with air sealing services to improve efficiency?

Air sealing is an important part of the solution to energy inefficiency, but it needs to be done in conjunction with other actions to make it as effective as possible.

Neither air sealing and insulating do that well alone: they need each other to be at their best. And once a building is sealed, controlled ventilation through vents and fans is necessary to keep up the quality level of the indoor air you and your family breathe every day.

I would highly recommend Pure Eco for anyone looking for insulation services. They are a local company that has been in business for over 20 years, and they know their stuff. I had a home inspection done recently, and the inspector recommended that I get some insulation work done. After doing some research and reaching out to several companies, Pure Eco was by far the most professional. They came out to my house at a convenient time, gave me an estimate that was very competitive, and got it done quickly.

I am a homeowner, and I was looking for an insulation contractor to do my attic insulation. I did not know much about the process, so I asked some friends and they recommended Pure Eco Inc. Pure Eco Inc came to my house and explained the process in detail. They also told me about their other services such as energy audits, home performance reviews, and HVAC installation. The price they quoted me was reasonable, so we decided to hire them to do the attic insulation. The team arrived on time and started working right away. They were very professional and friendly too. The job took about 2 days to complete. When it was done, there was no more cold air coming into our house from outside due to their great workmanship! We are very happy with the service we got from Pure Eco Inc! We would definitely recommend them if you are looking for an insulation contractor in your area!
