Sealing Air Leaks

Hot air is always trying to move towards and mix with cooler air. That could mean the heat from your home escaping outside during the low temperature winter months, or the hot outside air trying to enter your cool home during the high temperature summer months. Either way, tightening your structure by eliminating leakage will slow this process and help lower your energy use. Some ways to do this are:
  • Apply caulk and/or weather-stripping to windows and doors that leak.
  • Seal plumbing penetrations
  • Install foam gaskets behind outlet and switch gaskets
  • Caulk lighting and fan penetrations
  • Seal leaky baseboards
  • Seal furnace closets and attic access with weather stripping
