All Islands Home Inspections receives WSU grant

Orcas Island business All Islands Home Inspections was one of only 40 Washington State University grant recipients statewide.

The WSU Extension Energy Program was directed by the Washington State Department of Commerce to identify, solicit, and provide equipment and training to grant recipients who will deliver air leakage testing services for Washington State Energy Code compliance.

The 2009 WSEC requires air leakage testing for all new construction in Washington state. This program is supported by funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act through the Washington Department of Commerce.

“Air leakage through leaky ducts and inadequately sealed buildings can account for up to a 40 percent loss of conditioned (heated) air in a residential home,” said Tim Hance, founder of All Islands Home Inspections.
