Air Tightness Test
Having your home properly air sealed is critical to your energy conservation efforts and greatly impacts your utility bills. You can save up to 30% of your energy costs by air sealing multiple points of your home where energy losses occur. Additionally, air leaks are also a major cause of discomfort, moisture problems and even poor air quality.
Where Air Leakage Occurs:
The US Department of Energy shows how much air leakage
occurs in various locations of an average American home:
These figures provide you with the most important areas to target for
air sealing. However, a home energy audit will pinpoint the exact
locations of air loss and assess your entire home’s energy consumption
and waste, and recommend ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency.
Exterior of Your Home
The exterior of your home is often referred to as the “envelope” or the
“shell”. Sealing your home against air infiltration (air leaking in from the
outside) and air ex-filtration (air leaking from inside of the house to the
outside) helps to reduce your energy expenditures.
As a builder or homeowner, you can greatly improve your home’s energy efficiency by sealing as many entry points as possible. Check seams between the top of the foundation wall and the wood framing, doors and windows, along baseboards, through electrical receptacles and switches mounted on exterior walls, fireplaces, laundry chutes, attic hatchway
doors and pull-down stairs, whole-house fan installations and pipe and
Interior of Your Home
To ensure that air doesn’t leak from the outside of your home
to the inside, check the following:
