How To Detect Air Leaks

When you spend a few minutes making sure your HVAC system isn’t working harder than it should, you’re not only saving energy, you’re saving money in the process.

One way your home may be losing efficiency is through air leaks. While the most obvious place a leak occurs is around your windows and doors, any part of your home is susceptible to leaks. You can find gaps and cracks in the following places:

  • BaseboardsHow To Detect Air Leak
  • Attic doors
  • Fireplaces
  • Wall and window air conditioning units
  • Electrical outlets
  • Electrical light switches
  • Electrical and gas service entrances
  • Cable and phone lines
  • Vents and fans

Every visible entry point should be well sealed and insulated to prevent air flowing around it. If you find air leaks throughout your home, taking the time to seal them up can be an easy way to lower the amount you pay for utilities each month.

But inside your home isn’t the only place where problems can occur. Outside your house, check:

  • Exterior corners, making sure there are no gaps between the two sides
  • Cracks or leaks around outdoor water faucets
  • Siding to ensure it’s properly aligned with windows, doors, and chimneys
  • Gaps between siding and bricks and your foundation

As a homeowner, it’s important to perform routine checks around your house on a regular basis to ensure everything is in proper working order. However, hiring an expert from time to time to do a comprehensive energy assessment can give you an even better look at the overall efficiency of your home. Give us a call today.
