Importance of Insulation & Air Sealing
Your facility’s envelope (walls, windows, doors and other openings to the outside) may not be completely sealed. When air leaks through, it can force a higher output from your HVAC system and negatively impact your overall energy efficiency. AEG can help identify and answer all the questions you have regarding commercial air sealing services.
How Do I Find Commercial Insulation Contractors Near Me?
When you contact AEG, we set up a no-cost energy assessment, in which we identify leaks in your facility’s envelope. AEG conducts a “blower door test”, which utilizes a frame and flexible panel with a variable-speed fan. The fan blows outwards, lowering the air pressure in your facility. When the higher pressure flows inside, we can easily identify where the leaks are coming from.
How Do Commercial Air Sealing Systems Work?
There are many locations where you can discover air leaks in your facility, including but not limited to:
- Door and window frames
- HVAC system ducts
- Glass panes in doors and windows
- Ventilation fans in roof or outer walls
So what should you do when you discover them? Our commercial building insulation contractors can help you fix smaller leaks through caulking or weatherstripping. We also offer window replacements or retrofits for leaks that require more attention
It’s not just leaks, the insulation in your facility provides resistance to heat flow, leading to increased comfort and lower heating and cooling costs. Increasing the amount of insulation in a building is one of the easiest ways to achieve energy efficiency savings. We can help if you’re seeking commercial insulation installers who provide improved thermal insulation at your site.
