Professional Air Sealing for Greater Atlanta Homeowners

Improve your home’s comfort and cut your energy costs with air sealing

Sealing your home’s air leaks is one of the simplest, most cost-effective ways to lower your heating and cooling costs. In addition, it’ll likely improve your health and lead to less frequent illnesses too.

Have you ever tried to find all the ways air enters and escapes your home? Without sophisticated equipment, it’s hard to do. There’s many small leaks around your doors, windows, electrical outlets, and other non-obvious places where air makes its escape. Using our blower door test, we can tell you exactly how much air your home leaks and find the source of every single leak.

From your attic to your basement, J.R. Bolton locates and seals every air leak that affects your home’s comfort.

Most common sources of air leaks

These are some of the most common sources of air leaks in any home, including brand new ones:

Where plumbing and wiring penetrates your walls, floors, and ceilings
In and around electric outlets and switches
Around your chimney
Sump pump holes
Attic doors
Fans in your bathroom
Around recessed lights and ceiling fans
Basement windows
Around windows and exterior doors
Basement and crawl space rim joists
Cracks and holes in your walls

These are just some of the places where your home may have air leaks. However, there can be many more.

Air Leakage Evaluation

If your air duct system has hidden design flaws or blockages, your air flow will be restricted or unevenly distributed. This wastes your money and can make your home uncomfortable. Studies conducted for electric utilities nationwide show that over 66% of heat pumps and air conditioners suffer from this problem. Your consultant will conduct ‘Static pressure’ tests – like a blood pressure check for your ducts – to reveal any hidden blockages or design problems.

Air sealing and insulation work together to make your home comfortable

If you air seal or insulate your home alone, without doing the other one also, you’re not going to reduce heat flow as much as you could. Air sealing should be done before insulating because it reduces leakage most. Do one without the other, and you’ll miss out on significant energy savings and your home won’t be as comfortable as you want.

With J.R. Bolton, you’ll get your attic air sealed first because that gets rid of most of the leakage. Your basement and crawl space get attention next. When air sealing and insulation complete, you can save up to 50% on your heating and cooling bills.

To verify the difference, we do a blower door test before and after your air sealing and insulation work is done. You’ll get a lower leakage rating, which means you will see the additional comfort and lasting energy savings you want.
