Air Sealing and Draft-Proofing in on Vancouver Island & the Gulf Islands

Air Movement in a British Columbia home

If your home is drafty and has significant air leakage, you're suffering from many problems in your home that could easily be taken care of by a professional spray-foam contractor. More than just wasted energy in the home, these leaks create an uncomfortable, drafty environment that costs you money while making your utilities work harder and more often to try to condition the air. A sealed home is also much more in demand by buyers, bringing in a better price on the real estate market. For a Free Estimate on sealing your home in , call or contact us by e-mail today!

How to Stop Wasting Energy Through Heat Loss and Cold-Air Infiltration?

You have two options:

Increased home heating in a Duncan home through lowered thermostats and sealing a home with spray foam insulation

  1. You can turn your thermostat down or off. This will definitely use less energy, but you will also be cold.
  1. Improve the air sealing of your home. This way you will use less energy because the heat you do use will stick around. The drafts that make you feel cold and create uneven temperatures in your home will be sealed up. Your home will be more environmentally friendly, and you will stay nice and warm all winter long. In the summer, the reverse happens—you're much better insulated against unwanted heat from outdoors, and the need for air conditioning is reduced. It's a win-win situation!

What Makes Air Sealing and Draft-Proofing so Environmentally Friendly?

    They've been putting up with daily discomfort when they could have been enjoying the benefits all the while. And they paid for them either way.

  2. Code Compliance and Home Resale: It may soon become mandatory for all houses sold in BC to have an energy efficiency audit. Buyers may shy away from an energy money-pit. Don't wait until your realtor tells you that you need to bring your home up to modern expectations and standards.
