Air Sealing

Don't Let Money Slip Through the Cracks

Call Energy Solutions of Maine to detect air leaks in your home

Air leakage occurs when outside air enters and conditioned air leaves your house uncontrollably through cracks and openings. It is unwise to rely on air leakage for ventilation. During cold or windy weather in the Bangor area, too much air may enter the house. When it's warmer and less windy, not enough air may enter, which can result in poor indoor air quality. Air leakage also contributes to moisture problems that can hinder the occupants’ health and the structure’s durability. An added benefit is that sealing cracks reduces drafts and cold spots which improves comfort.

Blower door testing
Using a blower door and infrared camera your home is tested to determine total overall air leakage and identify areas where unacceptable levels of air infiltration occur. Using a prioritized list, those areas are targeting where the largest improvements will be made to lower the amount of airflow in the home. Following BPI guidelines, an combustion safety check is made and a follow up blower door test is done to ensure any changes made to not negatively impact the home's health and safety.
