Many homeowners have no idea how much air loss their home suffers from, and the negative impact it has on energy efficiency. An inexperienced homeowner living in a newly-built home may assume that the slight draft they notice from a certain corner of the main floor, or one room on the second floor, is par for the course for any homeowner, rather than a poorly-insulated home.
So where exactly are the most common sources of air loss in any home? And what can be done to improve your home’s energy efficiency?

When looking for effective way to go about reducing the potential of air leaks in your home, replacing the existing insulation with spray foam insulation like Icynene can be a great first step. Icynene spray foam can air seal your home effectively, thanks to its ability to expand 100 times its original size within seconds of being applied, allowing it to fill small nooks and crannies that would be reachable by traditional insulation.
