The combination of a blower door and the tools to seal leaks in your house is one of the proven ways to cut down on costly air leakage.

Using a blower door--a device that sucks the air out of your house to simulate an especially windy day--is the best way to identify where your house leaks. For many of us, a thousand little pin pricks may add up to a hole in your house the size of a window left open 24 hours a day, 365 says per year. 

By using a blower door in coordination with air sealing, we can identify the biggest leaks and get them sealed.

  • Everyone was very kind and answered every question we had. They were all so professional. I felt like everyone on the crew was right there trying to get the best final insulation numbers and were just as excited to find out we were able to drop our number in 1/2. As an owner of a 100+ year old house, I knew it was going to be bad but they knew what to do and did an amazing job. From start to finish they were there to do the best job they could. And when they left you couldn't even see work had been done. Thank you for all your hard work
