How to Fix Air Leaks in Your Home

Even miniscule air leaks can result in huge losses in efficiency, which will lead to higher heating bills this winter. To decrease your energy bill, watch this video for instructions on how to seal off air leaks in your home.


First, use a putty knife to remove the old caulk around the area that you plan to seal. Clean the area with a strong cleaning solution to remove grease and grime. Then use the caulking gun to seal leaks that are smaller than a quarter of an inch thick, and the expanding foam sealant to take care of gaps that are wider than that. Be sure to seal both the inside and the outside of the home, in areas around the foundation, basement, and attic. Use weatherstripping to seal areas around the doors and windows. For more tips on fixing air leaks, watch this video.
