Training held at Nicor Gas: Air leakage

Nicor Gas partnered with Illinois Home Performance to host a training about air leakage on August 21. Keeping homes dry and warm is essential for an effective controlled environment. Controlling air flow has been overlooked as a key aspect of achieving these goals. Air flow affects indoor air quality, comfort, building durability, condensation, combustion safety, recurring mold, icicles and more.
