Energy Efficient Homes

Air Leakage

Air leakage is the uncontrolled transfer of air into and out of a building and is the main cause of draughts. Excessive air leakage may lead to uncomfortable living and working conditions, but can also represent as much as 60% of the total heat loss, resulting in higher energy costs and unnecessary CO2 emissions.

The benefits of an air tight home:

  • Lower fuel bills through less heat loss.
  • Healthier home through better air quality.
  • Improved ratings mean a more valuable home.
  • Lower condensation means lower running costs.

How it works –

To make a home airtight you must create an internal envelope around the complete building. The airtight system seals all gaps and cracks that if left unsealed would allow cold air to pass into the home. Installing an airtightness system keeps the heat in and the cold out.

We can provide everything that you need to make your home air tight.
