Air sealing, believe it or not, is one of the most cost effective energy efficiency improvements a building can undergo. Equally important, a lack of air sealing can greatly reduce the R-value effectiveness of any insulation that is installed.
Every time we install insulation, we work to ensure that air leaks are sealed. This includes utility penetrations, cracks and gaps, seams between building materials, leaks around windows and doors, recessed lighting and ceiling fans, and anywhere else that air may be able to leak through the a building's thermal envelope.
Using a combination of caulk, spray foam, and weatherstripping, we identify the most cost effective methods of improving your building's air barriers.

I realized the first winter that I spent in my new home in Vestal New York that the insulation was insufficient. The house never had a warm comfortable feeling. The bedrooms above the garage were especially cold and the floors freezing to bare feet.
