Insulation isn’t the only solution for helping reduce your energy bills—air sealing is also important! In our experience, a home that is both insulated and sealed is the most energy-efficient. After all, air leaks can undermine the performance of insulation and hinder your energy efficiency efforts.
Although professional services yield the best results—and this is what we recommend—it can be helpful to know the basics about air leaks, and this includes common air leakage sites. There are some easy ways to find air leaks in your home. Of course, if you need help, call the team at Installed Building Products Tulsa at 918-518-0750918-518-0750!

- Attic hatches
- Fireplace dampers
- Electrical outlets and switch plates
- Vents and fans
- Electrical and gas service entrances
- Cable TV and phone lines
- Places where dryer vents pass through walls
