ARE YOU WASTING MONEY?
One of the most impactful changes we can make to help homeowners reduce energy costs is by identifying and sealing leaks and insulating gaps were conditioned or heated air can escape and cause problems.
Here in Chicagoland, many home furnace and plumbing pipes are routed through chases, typically running from the basement up to the roof. These chases can be wide gaps where condition air can escape. More often than not, these chases are not insulated.
In addition to wasting heated or cooled air, moisture can collect in these gaps leading to mildew and mold which can be especially difficult to detect.
In winter hot moist air can also travel up in to your attic through these gaps generating condensation and moisture build-up which can lead to mold and structural damage. To learn more about attic moisture click here.
As part of our free attic inspection, we identify gaps and leaks that can lead to problems.
