LEAKY HOMES ARE

Inefficient, Uncomfortable, & Unhealthy

Air leakage happens when outside air enters a home uncontrollably through cracks, gaps, and opening throughout the house. Higher air leakage means homes are significantly less energy efficient when compared to air sealed homes. This means these homes also require larger HVAC systems to keep the home comfortable, and more frequent running of these systems to keep up with the constant temperature changes of the house.

Uncontrolled air leakage can also provide a vehicle for unwanted moisture which, over time, can lead to a building’s ultimate failure. Because moisture is transferred predominantly by air currents – accounting for up to 98% of all water vapor movement in buildings – air sealing your home is essential.

WHY DOES THIS MATTER?

Air leakage…

  1. Is typically the largest driver of energy use in the home, comprising 30%-70% of energy wasted on heating and cooling
  2. Is usually the biggest contributing factor for drafts, hot/cold spots, and other comfort issues in a home
  3. Is often the largest contributor to moisture problems, especially mold and mildew
