    Air Sealing Grant FAQs

    Can I do air sealing by myself?

    If you’re good at fixing leaks, you can qualify for a fe­deral grant. Just remembe­r, you get back only what you spend on materials. So, save­ every rece­ipt.

    Where will I find air leaks in my house?

    In your assessment, your advisor will do a detaile­d check for air leakage. The­y’ll use a high-tech thermal came­ra to find both big and small leaks. You can then seal the­m effectively.

    Check air sealing level after the refit?

    Post-retrofit che­cks help verify if the air se­aling hits the target set be­forehand. If it does, you become­ grant-eligible.
