Whole Building Air Sealing

Man-Caulking-Window-6193157Proper ventilation is important, but unwanted air drafts make your home less comfortable. Air sealing reduces leaks and drafts where treated air can escape from your comfortable home, making your air conditioner or furnace work even harder. Air sealing creates a controlled barrier between inside and outside air.

• A blower door test is used to find any openings or drafts in your home. Blower door tests attach a fan to your exterior door and pull air out of your house, allowing the air pressure in your home to drop. Once the air pressure has been lowered, contractors are able to find any cracks or openings from any higher outside air pressure flowing in.

• Your contractor will be able to detect leaks in your home with an infrared camera.
