What Is Weatherization?
Weatherization is the practice of protecting a building and its interior from the elements,particularly from sunlight, participation and wind,and of modifying a building to reduce energy consumption and optimize energy efficiency. We work closely with Rise Engineering to implement all of these weatherization procedures to create a comfortable home for you and at the same time reduce your overall carbon footprint.
● Protecting pipes from corrosion and freezing.
● Installing insulation in walls, floors, and ceilings, around ducts and pipes, around water heaters, andnear the foundation and sill.
● Providing proper ventilation to unconditionedspaces to protect a building from the effects of condensation.
● Sealing bypasses (cracks, gaps, holes), especially around doors, windows, pipes and wiring that penetrate the ceiling and floor, and other areas with high potential for heat loss, using caulk, foam sealant, weather-stripping, window film, door sweeps, electrical receptacle gaskets, and so on to reduce infiltration.
