Do Foam Wall Plate Sealers Really Work? 

If want a cheap, easy way to lower energy bills in your home, condo, apartment, or building, one of the simplest do-it-yourself improvements is to install foam wall plate sealers behind each electrical wall plate.  The purpose behind foam wall plate sealers is to insulate and seal behind electrical outlets & switch plate covers, which will create a barrier against the outdoor, unconditioned air, which penetrates wall cavities.  Wall plate sealers work  by "sealing in" the conditioned heating and cooling air produced by your HVAC system.  In ninety-nine percent of homes that are depressurized with a piece of equipment called a blower door test, the test confirms that ALL electrical outlet and switch plate receptacles (which includes inner walls) introduce outside air since pipes and wires run across interior walls, introducing outside air to enter from your crawlspace, basement, attic, or slab.  The penetration of air throughout these wall areas contribute to a cooling and heating loss by as much as twenty percent.


My Home Has Good Insulation. Will Foam Wall Plate Sealers Help in This Case?

Unfortunately, insulation does not stop air from penetrating your living space.  Insulation is made up of fibers that allow air to pass through it.  Insulation serves as a thermal barrier, ( like a blanket) keeping you warm, but allows your body to breathe. Wall plate sealers offer a two-in-one benefit by sealing air and insulating, which  provides a greater benefit than insulation alone. Installing socket sealers is an inexpensive, do-it-yourself home impriovement that will more than pay for itself many times over.

Do Wall Plate Gaskets Provide Any Other Benefit?  


Wall Plate Gaskets Stop Cigarette Smoke From Entering Your Living Space:

Upset over the smoking neighbor, but not in a situation to move? Condominiums, apartments, motels, hotels, and office spaces face the challenge of containing cigarette smoke and stopping it from spreading to other areas of the building.  Whether you have a smoky neighbor, or you smoke and want to consider your neighbors, foam wall plate gaskets help to create a barrier against cigarette, cigar, or pipe smoke by sealing off living spaces.



Wall Plate Gaskets Prevent the Spread of Bedbugs, Insects, and Other Pests:

Wall plate gaskets seal to help prevent invasive pests like spiders, cockroaches, silverfish and other insects. Wall plate sealers also prevent bedbugs from entering into your home.  Apartments, condominiums, hotels, or motels are the most susceptible as compared to any other occupied space. Once an outbreak occurs, it can easily spread to other occupied spaces in the complex. In addition to the basics of caulking kitchen and bathroom pipes, wall plate sealers help to prevent unwanted pests by sealing off the second most vulnerable areas such as electrical outlets and switch plates. If air can move, so can pests. Unlike pesticides which can be harmful to people and pets, our foam wall plate gaskets are safe to handle.

Foam Wall Plate Insulators are Easy to Install by Yourself.

Made of U.L. rated flame retardant material, our wall plate socket sealers are easily installed behind the faceplate of the wall receptacle (all you need is a screwdriver) which once installed, becomes completely invisible.  We offer foam wall plate sealers in bulk packs which will save you lots of money compared to the small retail packs found in home improvement stores. For multiple gang outlets and switch plates, simply lay multiple sealers side-by-side on the faceplate and trim with a pair of scissors.
