People who are trying to tighten up their budgets could save hundreds by tightening up their homes.
Air leakage is one of the things that leads to energy loss from a house or other building.
"We're plugging in those air leaks, putting in better insulation, and reducing the cost of the home ownership in utilities by $700-$900 annually," said Bo Smith of Cornerstone Home Lending as he demonstrated how the test works.
The typical home in the United States has a 3 by 3 hole. A small leak can have a tremendous effect.
While fixing those energy hogs may cost you thousands, your utility savings could make up for it in a matter of years.
