70% REDUCTION!! These are the results from a recent house (built in 1956) that went through and energy audit and did some strategic upgrades through an insulation contractor. The blower door test was performed before and after the project to confirm the results. A 70% reduction in air leakage is going to help this homeowner lower utility bills and feel more comfortable in the home!

Tools of the trade: The blower door test. Energy auditors use this to determine how leaky - or how tight - a building is constructed. It is also used to locate drafts around the house. Windows and doors are common leaks, but what about the recessed lights, attic doors, or plumbing stacks? There are SURPRISES in every house, and no 2 houses are exactly alike. The results of the blower door test are used to develop a cost effective strategy to improve the efficiency of the house. What's YOUR blower door number? Call us to find out.

This is an image taken with a thermal imaging camera in the winter. While the cold wall cavity looks like an exterior wall with no insulation, it is actually an interior wall that is wide open to the attic. You can bet this is a problem for both the cold winter and the hot summer.

Have you cleaned your dryer vent lately? Experts recommend cleaning it out once every 6 months. This homeowner was complaining it took 2 hours to dry a load of clothes. If it takes longer than 1 hour to dry a load, this may be your problem.
