Once your Sealed professional completes your home energy assessment, our experts build a customized plan to improve your home at no additional cost. Your professional will sit down with you to discuss potential upgrades, and our contractors perform all installations with minimum disruption to your home and schedule.
Improvements can include:
• Smart Thermostats
Smart thermostats automatically adjust to your heating and cooling preferences and help lower consumption during
times of peak energy prices. Smart thermostats can also provide data on energy usage specifically tied to the heating and
cooling of your home, which allows Sealed to continuously adjust to your changing energy needs.
Many older homes are not well insulated, and some have no insulation at all. Properly installed insulation in walls, floors, and attics ensures more even temperatures throughout the house and results in a quieter, more comfortable living environment.
• Sealing Air Leaks
Many air leaks in homes are fairly obvious, such as around windows, doors, and electrical outlets. But others, like those
in attics, around chimneys, and through recessed lighting fixtures, are often the more significant sources of energy loss in
a home. Sealing air leaks is critical to improving the overall efficiency and comfort of your home, eliminating drafts and
ensuring consistent temperature throughout your home.
• Sealing Ductwork
Many homes have leaky ductwork and poor air flow, resulting in stuffy and uncomfortable rooms regardless of the thermostat setting. Your Sealed professional may recommend sealing your home’s ducts with mastic, metal tape, or spray-on sealant,
and balancing the duct system to optimize air flow to all rooms. Insulating ductwork in attics, crawlspaces, and some
basements can also help to ensure that your home will be more comfortable during any season.
• HVAC Units
If your furnace or air conditioner is more than 10 years old, your Sealed professional may recommend that it be replaced
with high-efficiency heating and cooling equipment that has earned the ENERGY STAR label. Installed correctly, these units
can use up to 20% less energy than older units, while greatly improving comfort and temperature consistency in your home.
If your large appliances, such as refrigerator, water heater, or washer and dryer are more than 15 years old, your Sealed
professional might recommend an upgrade to a more energy efficient ENERGY STAR model. New appliances offer better
performance and lower maintenance costs, all while improving the comfort, value, and aesthetics of your home.
