Many people think that the windows and doors of their home are causing uncomfortable drafts or cold/hot rooms that can’t maintain temperature. Using diagnostic equipment to find cracks and gaps to the out doors and leaks in the HVAC duct system you can significant reduce air leakage and increase comfort without replacing windows, doors or entire HVAC systems.
Poor ventilation and/or moisture in the home can lead to dust mites, mold and allergens, which causes a variety of respiratory health problems. Air sealing cracks and gaps in the building envelope and ventilating your home properly will help circulate clean, fresh air and reduce dust and moisture in the home, resulting in lower humidity and healthier environment for you and your family.
Installing insulation, air-sealing the building envelope and the HVAC system, and installing LED lighting can significantly increase the energy efficiency of your home. Air-sealing and insulating your home also means your furnace and air conditioner won’t have to work as hard to heat or cool your home, cutting your utility bills even further. This approach reduces homeowners’ annual utility bills by as much as 20 percent or more, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
