Air Sealing
Even the best construction will allow air to leak between joints and through seams. Naturally, this impacts the home’s energy efficiency. Researchers at Penn State University identified these key trouble spots for air leakage.*

Air Sealing can be an important investment in your home for the long term. Proper air sealing together with high R-value insulation in your building can mean lasting comfort, better energy efficiency and less stress on expensive HVAC systems. Plus lower utility bills!

Home Energy Auditing
An energy audit is an in-depth assessment of your building envelope conducted by a certified energy rater. According to RESNET, the authority on home energy auditing, home energy audits have three main objectives:

  • Figuring out where and how energy is being lost
  • Locating inefficient operating systems
  • Determining cost-effective ways to enhance home efficiency and comfort

Our local utility companies in the area LG&E and Duke Energy provide auditing services to homeowners. You can find more information by clicking the links below:

Knowing the energy trouble spots of an existing structure or the potential energy issues of a new structure allows for comprehensive solutions to be designed and implemented for increased efficiency. Energy Savers is highly trained and very knowledgeable in identifying and correcting insulation and air sealing deficiencies.

Your House as a System
Though insulation is one of the most essential and cost-effective ways to create overall efficiency, there are many factors to take into consideration that also affect your home’s energy efficiency and performance. Insulation and air sealing combined with energy-efficient appliances, windows, doors, lighting and HVAC equipment build a whole-house efficiency system that will prove beneficial throughout the year and for years to come.
