One of the largest sources of energy loss in a home is caused by air leaks. These air leaks are no different than leaving the windows and doors in your house open.
Sealing your home against these leaks can not only save energy but improve comfort levels for its occupants. In winter, air leaks allow heat loss out of the home or the entry of cold air into the home, making your furnace work harder. The opposite is true in summer with your air conditioner.
Before proceeding with any improvements, an evaluation should be made to determine how best air sealing & improved insulation levels might be a cost effective solution for you. While some of this work can be accomplished by the homeowner, others may require professionals.
If you are unsure about what might be transpiring in your home, or you are unsure as to what signs or symptoms you should look for, get it inspected.
