When spring arrives, it means summer fun and long days aren’t far away. If you or someone in your home suffers from allergies, spring is the beginning of a very unpleasant season.
Did you know that air sealing your home can help reduce allergy symptoms? As a home naturally breathes, outside air is pulled into the home through penetration points. These points exist around the home’s shell — around windows, HVAC venting, can lights, chimneys and more. This natural process pulls pollen and other outside pollutants into the home, directly into the air you breathe.
Air sealing your home helps keep outside air (and outside pollutants) out of your home. In addition to reducing pollutants in the home, air sealing can create a more comfortable living environment year round. By keeping unconditioned air outside the home, drafts are reduced and a home’s internal temperature is more easily maintained. This makes the home more comfortable and also reduces energy bills!
Spray foam insulation is the ideal product to insulate and seal air leaks in one step. When applied, spray foam insulation expands to fill a cavity. The product is applied as a liquid and expands to 100 times its volume. As the product expands, air leaks are sealed and R-value is added.
