Did you know.that one-third of all air leakage in a
home can be attributed to walls, floors and ceilings?
You might think your home is well insulated, but if it
has conventional air permeable fiberglass or cellulose
insulation, gaps, seams or damage could compromise
its performance.
Taking a tour of your home's insulation may not
sound like much fun, but it could-be a sound invest-

for the four key stops to make on your tour, courtesy
