Inspection FAQs

Improve the Energy Efficiency In Your House

Home Owners are encouraged today to improve your energy efficiency through passive design.  This is possible through good ventilation in the warmer climates and insulation in the cooler climates.

Air Flow

To improve air flow and air quality you should consider cross ventilation by having windows strategically placed in a home, within one room and from room to room.  As well, louver windows encourage ventilation by capturing any air flow around you house.  If ventilation isn’t possible, consider installing ceiling fans to help with the air flow.

Sealing your home’s walls, windows and other areas against air leakage is one of the simplest things you can do to increase the warmth through winter and coolness through summer (where an air conditioner is installed) and reduce your energy bills and carbon emissions by up to 25%.  By ensuring appropriate places are sealed well and air locks are in the right places can make a big difference.
