What is Air Leakage?
Air leakage occurs when outside air enters and conditioned air leaves your house through cracks and openings.
During cold or windy weather, too much air may enter the house. When it’s warmer and less windy, not enough air may enter, which can result in poor indoor air quality. Air leakage also contributes to moisture problems that can affect occupants’ health and the structure’s durability.
A recommended strategy is to reduce air leakage as much as possible and to provide controlled ventilation as needed.
How Do We Determine Where Air Leakage is Occurring?
We visually inspect your home. Additionally, we utilize state -of-the-a diagnostic equipment that will help determine where air leakage is occurring. This diagnostic testing will help determine where the leaks are, and how much loss the home is experiencing and the best solutions to remedy the issues.
What Does This Mean for You?
- Save money and energy
- Improve comfort level

Reducing the amount of air that leaks in and out of your home is a cost-effective way to cut heating and cooling costs, improve durability, increase comfort, and create a healthier indoor environment. Air sealing in conjunction with adding or improving current insulation values, are two key components that offer a quick return on investment, as compared to other energy efficient projects or products.
