Finding where my leak is

For the last couple of weeks, I have been breaking my body trying to find where the draft in our house was from.

  • I had no clue what to do other than call the Heating and Air Conditioning supplier.

The Heating and Air Conditioning dealer had testing they could do that would locate the source of the leak. I knew the draft was coming from my master bedroom because that is where I felt most of the air. I even looked at our window, thinking I may have a crack in one. I could put some caulk in it if need be. When the Heating and Air Conditioning supplier arrived, the 1st thing they did was to inspect the windows to see if they were officially sealed tight and close correct. They then looked at the air vents in the house. The Heating and Air Conditioning tech told me that they were going to look over all of the ductwork and the air vents. If there was a small crack in the ductwork, it could also cause a leak in the house. I wanted to think where the draft was coming from, but if it meant I was also losing heating, I wanted it to be found now. I followed the Heating and Air Conditioning dealer around as he used his heat sensor. When both of us got into the basement, he tracked every piece to see if there were any cracks or holes. When he got to the space that led to the bedroom, he didn’t need his heat sensor at all. He could feel the heat coming from the crack.
