Air Leakage / Ventilation
- Drafts and cold spots
- Ice dams may occur, leading to roof and ceiling leaks
- Moisture problems leading to peeling paint, mold, mildew, or structural damage in walls and attic
- Uncontrolled air exchange causing unhealthy air quality, high humidity or dryness
- Proper exhaust ventilation in bathrooms and kitchen is needed to control moisture and pollutants
- Freezing pipes are caused mostly by air leaks
Inadequate Insulation Levels
- Heat is lost in the winter and gained in the summer, causing heating and cooling equipment to work harder than necessary and increasing energy bills
- Cold exterior walls lead to discomfort and increased heating use
- Missing insulation in attics leads to hot rooms and increased air conditioner use
