New York Times Gives Tips

The New York Times ran an article identifying some simple ways to reduce the leakiness of a house.

The tips included checking attic doors and baseboard heaters, and identified products such as inflatable plugs that could be used to seal up a drafty fireplace.

Low-cost methods of identifying and reducing leaks, from using the smoke of an incense stick to raising the threshold of your front door, were highlighted.

Follow the story as a house goes from an air expulsion rate of 75% per hour to 40%.
