Air Leak Detection Options

 air leak at doorAbout 35% of heating and cooling is lost through the roof, according to energy experts, and walls, windows, and doors can also contribute to air leaks. What this translates to for you – is higher energy bills as your heating and air system struggles to keep up.

So how do you know if you have air leaks?  Here’s a quick test to determine if you have air leaks in your home - hold a candle a few inches from baseboards, window frames, pipes, doors, and vents. If the candle flickers or extinguishes then you have air leaks.

However, if you are not confident with this old test, you can always enlist the services of a professional who can thermally scan your home. With a thermal test, the roof, door, and windows can be checked to determine air leaks.

          Consider adding thermal testing to your next Atlanta home Inspection. There are some issues that just cannot be seen by the naked eye.
