Ice Dam Prevention Workshop

January 17, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Ice Dam Prevention
Energy prices are on the rise!  In this seminar, we will discuss air sealing and insulation and how to safely reduce your home’s energy use and lower your energy costs, reduce your carbon footprint and increase comfort. If you recall the winter of 2015, it was a bad one for ice dams and the problems associated with them. Ice dams and icicles are usually a symptom of air leaks through the home’s thermal envelope in the attic. There’s a right way and a wrong way to try to prevent ice dams from recurring. Don’t throw insulation at an air-sealing problem.  Methods and materials for reducing heat loss through floors, walls and ceilings will be discussed, as well as strategies for determining air infiltration through the home’s thermal envelope (What’s that? We’ll define that too!)

Instructor: Mark Garvey, BPI, ICSL, owner AirSealing America
Mark founded AirSealing America in 2008, and is based in Concord, MA.  He has a degree in Environmental Science with a concentration in Energy Issues from SUNY Plattsburg.  He specializes in evaluating a home’s energy efficiency through visual inspection and testing (blower door, infrared and combustion safety testing), and improving the home by sealing air leaks and increasing insulation levels, if needed.  More info at
