Air Leakage

Air leakage is the unintentional movement of air from one area to another. Air leaking from the ductwork (air being pushed out of the ducting system), will have a negative impact on your comfort level, heating and cooling system efficiency, and indoor air quality. To alleviate air leakage from the ducting system, all connections and transitions on the ducting system should be properly sealed and insulated.

Air leakage can also occur because of the home’s natural ‘stacking effect.’ As warmer air in the home rises, a negative pressure is created in the lower areas of the home. If mechanical ventilation is not used to create a pressurization balance, the negative pressure will be equalized by drawing unconditioned air (air leakage) through cracks, piping access holes, and porous building materials.

Crawl Space Sealing in Alpharetta, GA

We recently moved into a new house and the crawl space was very moist and unusable. We had the guys at HealthyAir come and put in a vapor barrier to seal it off. They recommended we use a dehumidifier and insulation to really make it protected for good. We can now use it for our extra storage.

On two sides of the home the finished basement was completely below grade with a third side about fifty per cent below grade.
