Homes, offices and commercial buildings in and around Montgomery, Alabama have air leaks. Air leaks naturally occur around the exterior of a building as a result of the construction process. These can be found around any opening in a building – windows, doors, vents, outlets and more. Air leaks allow conditioned indoor air to escape and outdoor air to enter a building. For years it was believed air leaks allowed for adequate home ventilation. Today’s building science proves uncontrolled air leaks can cause too much or too little air to enter or leave the home. Either situation can result in poor indoor air quality and increased energy bills.
Air sealing is the process of reducing the amount of air that enters or leaves a building through penetration points around the building’s exterior. Air sealing is an important step to making homes in Montgomery, Alabama more efficient. Sealing air leaks can help keep out pests and allergens, improve indoor air quality and reduce monthly energy bills. Spray foam insulation in Montgomery, Alabama insulates and air seals your home, business or commercial building in one step.
Spray foam insulation expands after it is applied (not unlike how shaving cream expands when dispensed from a can). This property allows spray foam insulation to completely fill a cavity. When it expands it naturally fills the cracks, crevices and penetration points in a cavity, and expands to seal these gaps. With one application, your home, office or commercial building is insulated and air sealed.
