Energy Star is the government-backed symbol for energy efficiency. It identifies homes and more than 40 types of products and services that meet strict guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). With Energy Star, consumers can save energy and money without sacrificing performance.
The EPA provides important recommendations on products and installations to get the most in comfort and energy savings. Saving energy helps protect the environment by reducing air pollution and global warming associated with energy production.
Home sealing is a process recommended by EPA to help increase the comfort and energy efficiency of your home by improving the seal of “envelope” – the outer walls, ceiling windows, and floors.

In the summer you may experience uncomfortably hot ceilings or rooms, no matter how low the A/C is set. All of these examples are symptoms of air leaks or poor insulation.
There are many ways to fix air leaks, such as caulking, using spray foam, and weather stripping smaller cracks and gaps. Plywood, drywall and rigid foam insulation may be used for plugging larger holes. Sheet metal and high-temperature caulking can be used to close gaps around chimneys and furnace flues.
