NJ home inspections should include checking for air leaks. Air leaks can cost a homeowner in utility bills and wasted energy, whether in winter trying to keep the heat in or in summer when trying to keep the heat out. Knowing that a home is airtight and energy efficient is helpful to a homeowner and whether you are conducting a home inspection or an energy audit this is an important feature to include.
A New Jersey home inspector can examine your home for air leaks but as a homeowner you can also keep your eye on whether your home is leaking air. Examining your window and door seals on a regular basis will reveal a great deal. Draftiness can be dealt with by installing new seals or, in extreme circumstances, by replacing windows and doors.
