High Energy Bill? You Probably Have Air Leaks

Monday, February 10th, 2020 by Emma Niemi


At the end of a long winter day, your home is where you come to relax, let loose, and stay warm. To keep your home warm during the unpredictable, Wisconsin winter months (and cool during the summer months), it shouldn't have to cost you an arm and a leg. 

Air Leaks

If you're experiencing inconsistent and uncomfortable temperatures or a high energy bill, undoubtedly, the main culprit is air leaks. Air leaks are a prevalent issue for many homeowners all around the country. The reason for this is because homes are built this way. Think of every screw or nail hole, every joint where the walls and floors meet, every electrical, plumbing, or HVAC installation. These have all created gaps and holes that allow air to exit and enter the home freely.

Air leaks push your HVAC system into working overtime - making your home too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. Have you ever heard of the quote by the Dalai Lama that says, "If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito."? Think of an air leak like a mosquito. They're small, but they make a big difference.

Air Sealing

Air sealing is a vital step towards improving home comfort and energy efficiency. Insulation alone will not solve your problem. Eliminating any gaps and cracks ensures your insulation has maximum effectiveness. There are usually three key areas where air leakage is a big problem. 

  1. Attics
  2. Basements
  3. Ducts
