Many Northern VA and DC area homes have hidden air leaks and insulation gaps, causing discomfort and high energy bills year-round. For greater home comfort and energy efficiency all year long, make sure your house is properly air sealed and insulated.

How Insulation Works

Insulation acts as a thermal barrier that controls heat flow into and out of the home.

  • In the summer, insulation keeps unwanted heat out.
  • In the winter, insulation keeps valuable heat in.

How Air Sealing Works

Air sealing closes up holes and gaps that allow air to travel into and out of the attic.

  • In the summer, attic heat doesn’t seep down into the home.
  • In the winter, rising heat doesn’t escape into the attic.

Why Air Seal & Insulate Together?

Air sealing and insulation work hand in hand to keep your home as comfortable and energy efficient as possible. Together, they provide benefits like:

  • Stable indoor temperatures
  • Fewer indoor drafts
  • Less need to run AC & heat
  • Greater home efficiency
  • Lower energy bills
