Hot and Cold Spots in the Home

When the Milewskys moved into their home late in 2004, they noticed hot and cold spots throughout the home. They contacted a Home Performance with ENERGY STAR contractor. The inspection and testing found significant leakage in the ductwork and in the house itself. The results of fixing the leaks were dramatic.
