Air tight builds is the principal of creating an airtight property. Air tightening a property means keeping air leakage to an absolute minimum.
A sealed air tight building won’t unnecessarily lose heat through cracks or gaps; as such the property will be easier to heat, more energy efficient and cost the owner less in heating bills.
Usher Insulations provides new builds with our complete air tight build service. We identify where air is escaping or entering and seal these problem areas. Our service uses a variety of techniques to create a property that’s completely air tight.
Usher Insulations provides a competitively priced, practical method of increasing the energy efficiency of a client's property
Our service is also available to retro fit buildings with air sealant solutions and to seal buildings undergoing a refurbishment.
Usher Insulations uses a combination of materials to completely seal property. We combine membrane tapes and a range of adhesive glues to seal cracks and any gaps around pipes, wires, ventilation shafts, electrical fittings and anywhere else that air is being allowed to flow freely.
When the right materials are used, draughts within a building can be completely eliminated.
Usher Insulations pays special attention to windows and doors where draughts and air leakage is particularly common. Our range of sealants can be integrated into the build and are completely invisible, so even large gaps or cracks can be sealed without the interior aesthetic of the property being spoiled.
Our service involves a comprehensive assessment of the property where our expert team assess the air tightness of a property. We inspect common, problem areas where air is allowed to flow freely, causing draughts and allowing energy to escape.
The areas our experts assess include:
Windows One of the main areas we access is windows. Gaps in the window installation can cause a considerable amount of air loss. Therefore we check windows and can provide airtightness repairs on cracks or crevices.
Doors (Keyholes, letterboxes cat flaps) Most air loss is through a property's doors. Before implementing the appropriate air loss prevention strategy, our experts inspect every aspect of the door, identifying where air loss can occur.
Loft hatches Like Windows, loft hatches can allow warm air to escape a property. We can install airtight hatches that prevent excessive air from escaping the property.
All areas where electric fittings are present Even the smallest hole in the wall or gap can, over time, lead to excessive air loss, meaning unnecessary high heating bills. We check all electric fittings and adopt remedial action when a problem is detected.
Between floorboards Frequently the floorboards are overlooked in a property. But even small gaps can lead to an excessive loss of warm air. We access and provide strategies to combat air loss through the floorboards.
Wall to ceiling joints Gaps in these joints can draw warm air out of a property and cold outside air inside. We can repair these gaps using various techniques, ensuring no excessive air loss occurs.
Open Fire and Flues Issues with fire and flue air loss are a particular problem in older properties. Even if the fireplace is blocked, air may still be escaping. We use specialist equipment to access air loss through chimneys and flues.
Rooms that require extraction due to high moisture levels (kitchen, bathrooms and utility rooms) Our team can recommend and install extraction systems to help remove moisture from a room while maintaining the space's overall airtightness.
