A properly air-sealed home is essential for improving energy efficiency. Air sealing is the process of sealing leaks and gaps in your home. Whenever there is a difference in air temperature between the inside and outside, there will be a pressure differential trying to suck air outside.
Common leaks are typically found around electrical chases as well as plumbing fixtures due to spaces where these two different atmospheres meet; door frames can also be affected by gaps that allow for too much escaping rather than entering properly through ventilation systems Finally, consider air sealing your chimney since the installation may not line up with all other ones within range.
A few things that might cause this issue include improper placement (installation) and cracks along seams or joists. So while we recommend having someone evaluate any potential problem areas before they become serious issues, air sealing is a service that Energy Monster provides to help homeowners and businesses in Massachusetts who are looking for ways to increase energy efficiency and save money.

Blower Door Tests
Blower door testing measures the airtightness of your home by depressurizing it with a large fan. With Energy Monster, you will finally know where your home’s air leaks are. The Blower Door Test forces fresh outside air through each room to find the places that conditioned interior or exterior spaces are escaping their responsibilities. Once this information has been revealed by our experts with thermal imaging cameras, we’ll do visual inspections for any signs of leakage.
With this test, you can see the following benefits
- Better understand your home’s energy loss
- Reducing energy consumption due to air leakage
- Avoid moisture condensation problems
- Get rid of uncomfortable drafts caused by cold air leaking in from the outdoors
- Improved indoor air quality
Our professionals will seal your home’s leaks with caulk, foam, and other materials. We do most installations on a single visit depending upon the size of the home. By doing so, can help you save energy and your home will no longer leak air.

Energy Efficient Windows and Doors
At Energy Monster, we offer our customers energy-efficient windows and doors in Massachusetts. Windows and doors must meet what is called U-Factor and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) requirements depending on the climate zone you live in. The U-Factor determines how well your doors and windows keep the air inside. The Solar Heat Gain Coefficient measures how much outside heat is blocked from coming inside your home.
We offer Energy Star label windows and doors that are designed specifically to save energy and keep your home comfortable all year round.
Your home’s windows are an important part of your heating and cooling system. But they can’t do their job if they don’t have the right materials or aren’t installed properly. If you live in a drafty or un-screened house with inefficient, old-fashioned single-pane windows, cold air probably seeps in during winter months. If you have leaky window frames, they probably also contribute to cold air coming in throughout the winter. These are two examples that it would be wise to consider window replacement.
An energy-efficient window ensures conditioned outside plus conditioned air inside and reduces your energy usage. The glass is specially coated to reflect heat back into the home and help keep it warm in winter while minimizing direct sunlight that enters during summer.
There are multiple types of frames, colors, and window designs to choose from so you can find one that will fit your needs, style, and personality. You no longer have to sacrifice looks for efficiency with our stylish energy-star-rated windows.
The doors in your home should also be energy efficient and seal air leaks like all other parts of a house or building’s envelope (the surface that separates conditioned spaces from unconditioned outdoor air). Installing new, energy-efficient doors is another service we offer to our customers in Massachusetts.
Another reason to install new exterior doors is that they can also save you money on air conditioning and heating costs. Exterior doors can reduce air leakage through the area where your old doors used to be. If there was a large opening between inside and outside air, then these two atmospheres would mix together. Doors intend to keep the exterior and interior air separate. It’s almost like having air conditioning in areas where it’s not needed. However, the installation of new door will fix this.
Energy Monster offers these services to businesses and homeowners throughout Massachusetts, so contact us today for more details on what we can do for you.
