Today, Margy and I are working with our realtor to do the paperwork and photos to put our current house on the market. Lots of de-cluttering and packing up work to accomplish in a very short time. So to give myself some extra energy for the day, I want to quickly write about our blower door test at the new house yesterday. This technology measures air-exchange in the house, and thus, how well sealed and insulated your home. One test is done before doing any work, and a second test after the work is done. Our house passed with flying colors!
And here is why–last week they raised the level of the attic floor by eight inches, sealed cracks, and pumped in a whole bunch of insulation into the attic, and created an insulated hatch cover. This might be the most important step we have taken for greener housing! It is good to remember that goal in the midst of all the hard work involved in making a move.
