Common Air Leak Sources
Our experience has taught us that, while air leaks can pop up almost anywhere in your home, there are a few common locations where we tend to find them. Some of the most common places we find air leaks include:
- Bath fans
- Around electrical outlets and switches
- Plumbing and wiring penetrations through floors, walls and ceilings
- Around chimney passes
- Attic access hatches, doors and drop-down stairs
- Around recessed lights and fans
- Around windows and exterior doors
- Cracks, gaps & holes in drywall or plaster
- Sump pump holes
- Leaky basement windows
- Rim joists in the basement or crawl space
We start by performing a blower test that provides a leakage ranking for your home. This is our baseline. Our strategy to eliminate your leaks, usually starts with your attic. First, we’ll check for leaks and air seal your attic, followed by your basement or crawl space. These are major sources of heat transfer. Then, we’ll move on to the rest of your home. Once we are done, we’ll perform a blower test that will show us your new leakage rating. Our goal is to make your home as airtight as possible so your insulation can work at an optimal level.
