In all the research I do on Energy Efficiency for Homes. There is one theme that presents itself in all the areas of Improving a Buildings Efficiency. Stopping Air Filtration. To make this simple and easy to understand I’m going to use Good Air and Bad Air.

Good Air is: the air that is created by whatever heating and cooling source you utilize.

Bad Air is: Un-Wanted Air that enters your Home from Exterior Sources

This Green Build Blog Post will center around exterior walls of your Existing Home and the various spots that air Enters your Home. In the Aticle: $1 Dollar Spent Earns $2 Dollars I mentioned sealing around the “obtrusions”.
I’m now going to point out 2 additional areas Bad Air can enter your home and how to stop the air.

  • Inside the Basement or Crawl Space is the Box Sill of your Home. Seal the Area against Bad air by caulking the Cracks and Joints where all the boards join together and the point where the Wall attaches to the Foundation-(Sill Plate, Box Sill, Floor Joists

  • Electrical Outlets- Easy fix install Outlet Plate Receptacle Insulating Sealer
