Celebrated annually on October 31, the spookiest day of the year – Halloween is right around the corner. Halloween is characterized by of-the-moment costumes, neighborhood trick-or-treaters, carving pumpkins into Jack-o’-Lanterns, and great frights at local haunted houses. However, these things are all temporary, but what may not be are the effects of air infiltration due to aging or damaged window seal, which can haunt your energy bills. By taking specific measures to control leakage, like contacting Royalty Sealants about weatherizing your building, you can ward off problems, including:
A significant concern with moisture is the potential for mildew or mold growth, both of which can thrive given the right conditions, like an improperly sealed window. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, mold produces allergens and irritants, potentially affecting your health.
Having a new window seal installed can mitigate air infiltration. The National Park Service (NPS): U.S. Department of the Interior defines it as the “exchange of air through cracks and gaps in the outside shell of a building.” A professional window sealant company can weatherize your commercial or industrial building to help prevent moisture problems.
Poor Indoor Air Quality
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air quality – often shortened to IAQ, refers to the air quality within buildings, where concentrations of some pollutants may be two to five times higher than those found in outdoor environments. The agency adds that the air exchange rate is one of several factors that affect IAQ.
While there are numerous things you can do to promote good indoor air quality in your commercial or industrial building, having window seal professionally installed is an excellent place to start weatherization efforts to mitigate air infiltration, potentially improving occupant comfort and well-being.
High Cooling and Heating Costs
In Arizona, cooling and heating your commercial or industrial building can be costly, so the last thing most want is for that conditioned air to move in an unwanted direction. But, unfortunately, air leaks do just that, costing you more to cool and heat your indoor working environment.
An excellent way to reduce this is to hire a silicone sealant company to adequately seal your building’s windows and other areas where leakage may occur, like the joints. These services effectively reduce air filtration, thereby promoting energy efficiency, subsequently helping you avoid high cooling and heating costs each month.
