Air sealing

Get $100 for air sealing your home*

Tiny gaps and cracks in your home can add up to big energy losses making your furnace work harder than it needs to. Air sealing is an easy way to keep the heat in and the elements out while helping you save.

*Must be completed in conjunction with insulation rebate.
