Air leakage testing shows you how to reduce energy loss and make homes more comfortable. Reducing drafts is the most cost effective method for improving typical homes. We have the experience to test new and existing homes and make improvement recommendations.
Homes have become tighter to reduce heat loss and improve comfort. One benefit of reduced air leakage and better insulation is a lower rate of heat loss. That means furnaces, air-conditioners and heat pumps can be reduced in size (capacity) to meet this lower need. To preserve these efficiency gains, your home should have an effective ventilation system with heat recovery. Called heat recovery ventilators (HRVs) or energy recovery ventilators (ERVs), these devices expel moist, stale air and provide drier, fresh air. In the process, energy is transfered from the outgoing stale air to the incoming fresh air. If you tighten a home and then install an inefficient ventilation system, much of the gains in energy savings will be lost.
