Oh my what fun ,300 bucks later ,no no ,we are part of a study testing housing in this area to see how we measure up only paid 150.00--government seems to want us to keep using electricity we want to start with solar --hot water heater first
OK did the door blower test -
Air leakage is about 1/3 of heat loss of house and it is uncomfortable.
Blower door test will find what kind of leaks your house has.
The test will be like a 20 mph wind on all sides of the house. did 40 kms here
A large fan is sealed into an outside door and air is blown out of the house
Seems upstairs the previous owners did a fine job insulating but forget to seal the vapor barrier (plastic )--lol
What the guy did ,check the fridge its only 3 years old ,we don't use a big stove in kitchen ,just a small size counter top oven microwave and electric heat (
gave us a 6 pack of light bulbs ,tide cold water ,and a drying rack?-- said the program feds just axed for energy retrofit was a sham --the highest anyone ever got for the audit was 2700. that person spent 100,000--lol and 100.00 on the testing --of course they will see the money back in about 100 years --lol
No previous incentives exist Cons axed the whole program --
Question taping around sockets and doors with barrier (over insulation ) wasn't that a normal thing to do --why did the previous owners not do that they went to great lengths to insulate ??
Now we need to take all drywall and stuff off to re-tape --lol ---I want to move --lol
I couldn't keep track of all the holes in the one side of the house --it worked out to be the size of two open doors -lol
Again big thing to keep our electric heating --um whats with that ??
