Finding Air Leaks in Your Home

If you’re trying to make your home more energy-efficient, perhaps you’re looking to insulate the attic and walls. While insulation is a great solution, it isn’t the only option to consider! Air sealing is actually just as important because air leaks can negatively affect the performance of your insulation.

Before you talk to professionals about air leak detection and sealing, we commend reading this blog post! It helps to know the basics, including common air leakage sites. There are some simple ways to detect air leaks in your home.

How to Find Air Leaks

There are a few signs that indicate you may be losing energy—such as drafts, especially by windows and doors. In fact, windows and doors are some of the biggest sources of air leaks in houses. But there are many other areas where air leaks can occur:

  • Attic hatches
  • Fireplace dampers
  • Electrical outlets and switch plates
  • Vents and fans
  • Electrical and gas service entrances
  • Cable TV and phone lines
  • Places where dryer vents pass through walls
  • Exterior corners of the house
  • Outdoor water faucets
  • Places where siding and chimneys meet
