Using a blower door--a device that sucks the air out of your house to simulate an especially windy day--is the best way to identify where your house leaks. For many of us, a thousand little pin pricks may add up to a hole in your house the size of a window left open 24 hours a day, 365 says per year. 

By using a blower door in coordination with air sealing, we can identify the biggest leaks and get them sealed. 

This video from Green Building Advisor shows how it's done.

Our Customers Speak for Us

  • Very professional and knowledgeable, excellent customer service. With a new baby, improving the indoor air quality and thermal comfort of our home was a priority - Kevel delivered with great work completed in a timely manner and on budget.

  • My house was very drafty with no working heat before Kevel came. Now, our formerly broken central heating is working great, and I notice a significant decrease in drafts throughout. I would say that Kevel is very responsive and responsible.

  • Excellent workmanship and attention to detail--as well as to our questions. The understanding of the whole house energy system was exceptional, and the "as-built" system diagrams were a real plus.

  • Very professional, knowledgeable, pleasant to work with. They found several major problems with our ductwork that have been around for at least 30 years. Noticing a difference already in how the house seems better able to maintain a constant temperature.

  • Great workmanship and completed in a timely manner by conscientious people. My home temperature is uniform throughout, before the upgrade the downstairs was always a lot colder.

  • Everyone was very friendly, considerate about tracking dirt into the house, kept worksite neat - not to mention did a great job. Brian even came one evening to fix the furnace door which came unlatched so that I could have heat.

  • I am very happy with the efficiency, the fit, the look, and the partial sound reduction. Indow Windows are a very good product with obvious benefits. Kevel provided very knowledgeable and professional service.

  • Feels like a whole different house. No longer do I wake up feeling like I'm camping (i.e. with chilly air feeling like I'm outside). The air sealing I think made the most difference - much more than I had expected.
