    Explanation
    Caulking is used to prevent air leaks by sealing gaps and cracks in windows, doors, and other areas where air can escape or enter. It is a flexible material that can be applied to fill in any openings, creating a tight seal that prevents air from passing through. Caulking is commonly used in both residential and commercial buildings as an effective method to improve energy efficiency and reduce air leakage.

    C. Monthly
    Explanation
    Dirty insulation can lead to decreased efficiency and potential safety hazards. Checking for dirty insulation on a monthly basis allows for regular maintenance and cleaning to prevent buildup of dirt, dust, or other contaminants. This ensures that the insulation remains clean and effective in regulating temperature and reducing energy loss. Checking on a monthly basis strikes a balance between regular maintenance and not being too frequent that it becomes burdensome or unnecessary.

    How do you know if you have an air leak?

    • D.

      If you already changed it

    Correct Answer
    B. Your insulation is dirty and black
    Explanation
    If your insulation is dirty and black, it indicates that you have an air leak. The blackness is a result of dust and dirt particles being trapped in the insulation due to the air passing through it. This suggests that air is flowing through the insulation, which is not supposed to happen. Therefore, a dirty and black insulation is a clear sign of an air leak.

    Correct Answer
    C. What keeps air from leaking
    Explanation
    Insulation refers to the material or technique used to prevent air from leaking. It is used to create a barrier that limits the transfer of heat or cold between the inside and outside of a building. Insulation helps maintain a consistent temperature inside the building by reducing the loss or gain of heat through walls, floors, and ceilings. It is not related to cleaning or holes in the wall.
