Air Infiltration Around Windows & Doors
To some extent, every home, regardless of age or location, needs to “breathe.” You may feel some air coming into your home around windows, doors, skylights, electrical outlets, walls, floors or the roof. This is air infiltration, and it is the result of air pressure differences between the inside and outside of the home. Every home has some level of air infiltration.
