A LEAKY HOME IS
Air leaks let in particulates, dust mites, pollen, and mold spores
If your home leaks a lot then you’ll need a larger HVAC system and you’ll have to run it more often.
Moisture and mold spores often enter homes through air leaks and get trapped in wall cavities
40% of all CO2 emissions are from buildings.
Most building emissions are from overrun HVACs.

A TIGHT HOME IS
Tightly-sealed homes keep out particulates and offer green air even on red air days.
A well-sealed home needs less energy to stay comfortable and uses a smaller HVAC system.
Blocking moisture and mold spores means your home’s structure will remain stronger longer.
