Is your home freezing cold during the New England winter? Do you notice drafts in your basement, have an older home, or unsealed windows? If so, it’s time for weatherization in the lower-level of your home.

You may be losing heat through the bottom pocket of your Home Heat Envelope if you have not properly weatherized these essential areas of your basement.

Lower-Level Weatherization

  • Basement Windows
  • Additional Crawl Space
  • Outdoor Faucets
  • Wiring Space
  • Plumbing Holes

These areas of the basement floor are typically a strain on home energy bills.

Locating Air Leaks

Our experts will locate your air-leaks and help seal your Home Thermal Envelope. They may also help you prevent a winter plumbing disaster.

When the New England temperatures drop low, poorly insulated outdoor faucets become a potential hazard if water supply is active. Our technicians can provide you with proper weatherization solutions that will prevent plumbing disasters.

Are the floors above your crawl space unpleasantly cold? If not properly insulated, a crawl space may drop the temperature of the level above the space. Crawl spaces may be the biggest drain on energy usage if left unsealed.

How can you tell if you have an air leak?

Do you notice cold drafts when you open your dryer? Poor insulation around the dryer vent or holes inside the duct itself may be a source of an air leak. Lack of proper insulation may also lead to mold in the winter as cold temperatures contrast with the hot air inside dryer ducts.

Our technicians will help you save big on energy by providing you with proper weatherization solutions. Securing the bottom pocket of your Home Heat Envelope is the key to energy conservation.
