Are you tired of chilly window drafts and stepping on cold floors? Are you tired of bundling up in one room because it’s so much colder than the one you just left? Conversely, are you equally fed up with heat waves that render your living space unbearable? And, even worse, that send your power bills through the roof as your energy-burning air conditioner struggles to cool the house?
Sealing air leaks and properly insulating your home are two of the most effective steps you can take to reduce heating and cooling costs and increase the comfort of your home. Air sealing leaks reduces uncontrolled flow of air into and out of your home. Insulation reduces the transfer of heat through walls, roofs and floors. Heat stays in during the winter and out during the summer.
Insulation works best when air leaks are sealed first. Air leaks into and out of your house in many places, including around doors and windows, ceilings, walls, floors, around plumbing pipes, vents and electrical outlets and so on.

This can include carbon monoxide from appliances.
