Reducing the amount of air escaping to and from your home is a cost-effective way to reduce heating and cooling costs, increase durability, increase comfort, and create a healthier indoor climate. Caulking and ventilation are two simple and effective air caulking techniques that pay off quickly, often in a year or less.

Sealing is typically used for cracks and openings between stationary components of a home, such as around door and window frames, and airtightness is used to seal moving components such as work doors and windows. You can also request a free quote from a professional caulking service.

Gaskets are flexible materials used to seal air leaks through gaps, gaps or joints less than 1/4 inch wide between solid components and materials. Atmospheric coating is the right material for moving components such as doors and windows. Before closing an air leak in an existing home, you need to identify the leak and assess your ventilation needs to ensure adequate indoor air quality.

In addition to sealing air leaks, caulking can also prevent water damage inside and outside the home when applied around faucets, ceilings, pipes, ducts, bathtubs and other plumbing fixtures. Putty is the best filling material for holes less than 1/4 inch wide. Silicone costs the most but performs better near non-porous materials, such as metal.

Low gaps in foundation walls are important when trying to repair a wet basement, but only gaps above the outer floor level will let the air out. Seal this with the same material you would use on the ceiling: seal the gap to 1/4 inch wide and spray foam for a wider one. Use high-temperature gaskets around heated ventilation ducts.
