Home Performance Insulation in Knoxville, TN

Cut Energy Costs with Proper Insulation

Proper insulation is vital to increasing Home Performance. Insulation is truly achieved when air sealing and duct sealing are performed. Air sealing, duct sealing and properly insulating the home are the trinity of increasing the home's comfort and reducing its carbon footprint. Various types of insulation application include batts, blown, and spray foam. Insulating attics, crawlspaces, and walls are absolutely essential to increase the home's energy efficiency potential.
Incorporating air sealing, duct sealing, and proper insulation is the foundation for maximizing Home Performance.

Home Performance Air Sealing

Air sealing is the first priority when considering any Home Performance enhancements. Air sealing means that your home's thermal envelope will be tightened. It can be easily achieved by sealing locations where air and energy leak from your home. Most energy loss occurs in attics, walls, and crawlspaces. Air sealing can seal all penetrations in unconditioned and conditioned spaces if required. It is the most important step to take to reduce utility costs and increase comfort. Air sealing should always be done before any other energy improvement.

Home Performance Duct Sealing

Duct sealing is another important step when improving Home Performance. This is typically the second measure a homeowner should take after air sealing. Duct sealing is important because leaking existing duct systems will remove cooled or heated air from the HVAC system and release it into the attic, crawlspace or between the floors in the home. Traditional duct systems are generally the second largest reason for comfort loss and higher utility consumption in the home. Homeowners can increase their Home Performance by making sure ducts are properly sealed. Duct sealing is achieved by sealing seams on the trunk line, supply, return and ensuring a proper airtight seal is created. Combined with air sealing, duct sealing can achieve higher comfort and greater reductions in utility consumption.
