“Locating and sealing air leaks in the attic and the basement are also vital steps in improving energy efficiency for homes in higher latitudes. Structural flaws tend to develop in hard-to-reach locations throughout a house, hidden from plain sight and detectable only through a detailed inspection by a professional. Energy Star specifically pinpointed areas such as kneewalls, attic hatches, wiring holes, plumbing vents, recessed lights, furnace flues, duct chaseways, and basement rim joists as susceptible to air leaks.
Families that are looking to improve their domestic energy efficiency and cut down on their monthly electricity bill need to consider the long-term effects and costs of any decisions they make regarding the quality of their insulation. The skilled and experienced technicians of EnviroTech Insulation can help design, install, and maintain energy-saving attic insulation for Toronto homeowners.”
