High Performance windows, Comprehensive air sealing and properly installed insulation work together to improve durability, reduce maintenance costs, enhance comfort, and lower monthly utility bills.
An average home contains a half mile of gaps and cracks around windows and doors – along with hundreds of holes for pipes, lighting, wiring, and ventilation ducts. Sealing these cracks and holes helps reduce moister, drafts, dust pests, pollen, and noise. A tightly sealed home improves comfort and indoor air quality while reducing utility bills.
It’s the quality of the insulation along with proper installation, not the amount that makes a difference. Proper installation includes careful placement to eliminate gaps, compression, and voids along with building techniques that minimize heat flow through framing, and complete barriers that prevent air from bypassing the insulation. This ensures reduced energy use, increased comfort, and consistent temperatures throughout the house.
Advanced technologies like improved frames and protective coatings help keep heat in during winter and out during summer. They also block damaging ultra violet sunlight that can fade carpet and furniture.
