Indoor Air Quality
Creating energy-efficient homes that trap heat during cold weather and keep it out during warm weather is one of the primary goals of modern house design.

What is Air Sealing?
Air sealing is the process through which technicians eliminate air leaks that occur throughout a home. These can occur in variety of locations, including the spaces around your plumbing pipes and electrical outlets, but common troublesome areas include windows, doors, attics, ductworks, fireplace walls, sill plates, foundation, flooring, and any recessed lighting.
Caulking is one of the principle jobs done in air sealing. Caulk is a flexible material that closes off gaps less than a quarter of an inch wide that may open around stationary building components. Once the professionals have determined places where your home has air leaks, they will use caulk to close them up.
Spray foam is one of the best ways to patch or fill spots that are in hard to reach locations or odd shaped spots to fill. It is ideal for effectively sealing areas that are not that accessible or fill spots where fiber glass batts are insufficient. Not only is it durable but it seals any small air leaks or gaps that can reduce efficiency by up to 25% over time.
Weather–stripping is a useful alternative for air sealing with doors and operable windows: i.e. parts of your home decor that move. Professionals will need to determine the air friction, temperature shifts, and wear and tear from the air leak around the door or window to find out the type and amount of weather–stripping to use.
Do You Need Air Sealing in Des Moines, IA?
If you live in a newer home, you might imagine that it has an effective air seal. But you’d be surprised how much air can pass through a few small spaces. If you feel that you have started paying more than you should for your heating and cooling bills, or you have noticed hot and cool spots in your home where they shouldn’t be, then you should contact Golden Rule Plumbing, Heating & Cooling to see if you need air sealing.
