What are the Effects of Home Air Leaks?

In an ideal situation, your home would be completely sealed so that cool air from your air conditioner could stay inside and warm outdoor air would have no way of getting indoors. In reality, however, many homes have small cracks and openings (especially around windows and doors) that allow air to flow in and out of your home. Today we’re going to talk about the effects of these home air leaks and what you can do to avoid them!

How to prevent home air leaks

 

The best way to prevent home air leaks is to inspect your home for leaks and seal up any ones that you find. A good place to start is with your doors and windows. Examine the frames around your doors and windows and see if any light shines through from the other side. If it does then you have found a leak. In addition, feel around your doors, windows and exterior walls for any signs of drafts. If you can feel air blowing through, then you have definitely found a leak.

 

Air leaks can be sealed in a couple of different ways. You can use caulk to plug up any holes that you find, while you can use weatherstripping around the moving parts of your doors and windows to ensure that they remain tightly sealed.
