Sealing Air Leaks
Sealing air leaks around windows and doors will help improve your homes energy efficiency. It is possible that you can find some air leaks yourself by using a candle and holding it up to doors and windows. If you see the smoke from the candle moving horizontally, you probably have air coming in from the outside.
For a thorough and accurate measurement of your home, you will need to conduct an energy audit and specifically a blower door test. A blower door test, which depressurizes the home, will reveal the location of many leaks in the home.
Once the air leaks are located, we can provide solutions for sealing the leaks and make your home more energy efficient. We will find and seal all air leaks helping you save money on your energy bill.
What’s the Damage?
DID YOU KNOW?… 40% of heat loss is due to air leakage, per the Department of Energy?
DID YOU KNOW?… One 1/8-inch air gap along the opening of a pair of 7-foot exterior doors is equivalent to leaving a window half open during the coldest night of the winter or the hottest day of the summer?
DID YOU KNOW?… A 1/2 inch round hole can carry as much as 50 cups of water through it over a course of a year. Increased moisture can lead to increased mold, bacteria and other health related problems.
