Testing for energy losses

Test for yourself.

Can your home or office pass a draftiness exam? Here are some "spot quizzes" to help you test for energy leaks:

  • Flashlight Quiz. Have someone go outside at night and shine the flashlight at and around doors. The flashlight will shine through any cracks or openings.
  • Tissue Quiz. To detect faint drafts around windows, hang a piece of tissue on a clothes hanger and hold it next to a closed window. If the tissue ripples, you've got an energy-leaking draft.
  • Money Quiz. Is energy slipping out your doors and windows? If you can slip a quarter underneath your door, energy dollars are walking out that door. Now place a dollar bill across the weather-stripping on a window, close the window, and pull out the bill. If it comes out easily, you're letting your energy dollar slip away.
