Why Does My Home Need Air Sealing?
Whether it’s due to imperfect construction, normal wear and tear, or renovations and home improvement work, it’s likely your home has a number of very small cracks, gaps, and air leaks. These leaks allow air to move in and out of your house, wasting energy and increasing the amount of moisture and air pollutants that can get into your home.
Identifying Air Leaks Starts with a Home Energy Audit
Rising energy bills, drafty rooms, and indoor air quality issues are all signs that your home could use air sealing. But the best way to definitively identify the location and severity of the air leaks in your home is with a home energy audit.
Audits, among other things, test for air leakage in your home using a blower door test. This test measures the total amount of air leakage your home has, and can even pinpoint where exactly leaks are occurring. Using the results of your blower door test and your overall audit, we will recommend where your home could benefit from air sealing and any other home performance improvement work, like:
