Make your home energy efficient by reducing air leaks

Our Green Handyman Energy Experts at Virginia Home Repair can make your home more energy efficient by looking for holes, gaps, and cracks around your home. These areas are not always obvious, but they are there, allowing conditioned air out in the summer and heated air out in the winter.  The potential energy savings from reducing drafts through professional home sealing may be as much as 10% according to the U.S. Department of Energy.  Air leaks waste energy and make it more expensive for you to keep your home a comfortable temperature.  The best solution is to use caulk in these areas because the caulk forms a flexible seal.  Using caulk is important because:

  • Besides sealing air leaks, caulking can prevent water damage when applied around water pipes, drains, bath tubs, and other plumbing fixtures
  • It is important to consider ventilation because an airtight home can trap pollutants
  • Ventilation also controls moisture which is an important factor for an energy efficient and healthy home
  • Virginia Home Repair can inspect your home for possible air leaks around:

    Air Conditioners
    Dryer Vents
    Door Frames
    Weather Stripping around Doors
    Window Frames
    Attic Hatches
    Electric & Gas Service Entrances
    Phone Line & Cable TV
    Outdoor Water Faucets
    Brick Siding, Stucco, & Foundations

Caulking compounds vary in quality, strength, properties, and prices.  It is extremely important to use the right caulk for the right application. Virginia Home Repair Green Handyman Energy Experts can help you select the right caulk to improve the energy efficiency of your home.
