Ever walked through your house and felt like there was a cold breeze? Wondered why your house never cools in the summer? Fact is air leakage happens throughout your home through holes, gaps and cracks and it is the single biggest cause of home heating and cooling costs. The average home has lot of hidden holes, gaps and cracks around door, window electric outlets, plumbing, siding, basement walls and other places. Added all up it's equal to having a 4 square foot opening leaking air out of the house. Air sealing the home stops those leaks.

Attics and basements are most common to air seal. Great Stuff will air seal pipes, door, plumbing shafts, attic hatches and elsewhere inside the house. Air sealing is best for baseboards, window and door frames, heat and air vents, and for sealing out pests. Take Great Stuff outside to seal siding edges, AC openings, outside water faucets, dryer vents and holes and voids in the garage. Great Stuff window and door air foam is
soft and pliable and won't bow windows or door frames.

Tips: Do not operate around a flame. Shut off pilot lights until Great Stuff hardens completely. As it's applied fill it less than 50% full to avoid over expansion. If the straw hardens cut the straw where it is hard and continue application .
