Adding air seal tape to window.

Air Sealing

Air leaks rob your home of energy and comfort. Find and seal up leaks for a safer, more comfortable and energy efficient home — and earn up to $150 back.

Description

Take advantage of BayREN rebates on sealing air leaks and enjoy the comforts of a healthier, more energy-efficient home. Qualify for rebates up to $150.

Even when you don’t feel a draft, air leaks may be letting heated or cooled air out of your home — and letting unwanted pollutants inside. Sealing leaks is an inexpensive, effective way to lower heating and cooling costs, increase comfort, improve durability and create a healthier home.

To qualify, air sealing must either be completed as part of another building shell upgrade (e.g. wall or attic insulation) or must  pass a blower door test-in and test-out to verify qualifying leakage reduction.
