How it works

Most homes lose 50% of their hot or cold air through leaks caused by poor insulation. During the winter, the warm air you paid to heat escapes only to be replaced by cold air from outside. In fact, enough air leaks in a single day to fill two Goodyear blimps!

Studies show that as much as 50% of a home’s energy loss is caused by air passing through walls, windows, and doorways.

This leakage results in greater energy demand and higher utility bills. This problem is not exclusive to older homes—even new construction, if it relies on traditional insulation, will produce significant energy loss and give you higher utility bills.


Common Areas of Energy Loss

The most easily detected spots of energy loss are around the doors and windows when cold air seeps into a warm home. Less obvious areas of leakage are also active, and a home with conventional insulation will lose air through:
