Research found that the loss of energy from gaps, crevices, and unwanted openings in the average home is equivalent to leaving a window open in your home. You may as well throw your hard-earned money out of that window – the energy loss is that significant.
Common Household Leaks
The main culprits of air leaks are all around the home:
- Windows and doors
- Recessed lights
- Electrical and wiring boxes
- Outdoor faucets
- Behind knee walls
- Attic hatch
- Plumbing vents
- Furnace flue or duct chase-ways
- Basement rim joints
Besides the loss of energy, these openings are an open invitation to pollutants, bugs and insects, rodents, noise, and unwanted and harmful moisture, mold and mildew issues.
Stopping air leaks, along with adding insulation, promotes a healthier indoor environment, and a more comfortable home for you and your family. Our Home Energy Audit is designed to discover these unseen entryways so we can seal these areas and stop the leaking.
If you are replacing windows to cosmetically enhance the appearance of your home, there are plenty of fine choices for you to choose from. However, if you think your windows need to be replaced for increased energy efficiency, please, call us first. The problem may not be windows. You may need nothing more than air sealing and/or a different type of window treatment. We may be able to save you a bundle of cash.
