Air Sealing

Leaky houses have their own set of problems ranging from drafts, blistering paint, ice dams and frozen pipes to a house that won't adequately heat or cool. While in the past airsealing efforts concentrated on the easy to find air leaks around windows and door, we now know that the most important leaks in a house are the hard to find leaks in the attic, crawlspace, attached garage and other framing connections. These hidden leaks are responsible for most of the air leakage in typical houses, and are often the cause of performance and durability problems.

Assisted Home Performance Program with ENERGY STAR

Assisted Home Performance with ENERGY STAR offers two incentives for eligible New York home owners: (1) a subsidy for up to 60% of the total cost of the approved efficiency improvements (“Assisted Subsidy”) in a 1-4 family home, and (2) low interest rate financing for the balance of the cost of the efficiency improvements through selected Lenders (“financing”). Eligible New Yorkers include borrowers in 1-4 family homes that have household incomes at or below 80% of the State Median or Area Median Income (whichever is greater).
