Whole House Air Sealing-
New Yorkers homes are not perfect. We buy older homes, homes with extensions, dormers, and other additions. This is a tall tale sign that the home might not be as airtight as it could be. When You Save Green does an energy audit we show you how drafty your home is. We are able to run an air leakage test, provided to you for free from the Green Jobs Green New York program run by NYSERDA.
Our team of energy auditors will run an air leakage test on your home. First we setup a blower door fan, which puts the house under a slight pressure. This simulates 20 mile per hour wind gusts on the exterior walls. This determines CFM or cubic feet of air per minute drafting through the house and out the fan.
We take that as our test in number. Then we send the installation crew to your home to conduct blower door guided air sealing. Our knowledgeable staff can identify air leaking into the ‘building envelope’. We can use high-density spray foam insulation to seal up larger gaps. We can use clear caulking on the windows, doors, and floor molding. We are monitoring the blower door to determine our CFM or cubic feet of air per minute reduction.
A home needs to have a ‘pressure boundary’. That is how you are going to keep in the heat! Our team of installers can establish your homes pressure boundary by sealing the place up. This will keep in the air you have paid to cool or heat.
