When you are looking to improve your homes energy efficiency and overall comfort, the attic should be your number one priority. Air sealing the attic combined with the right insulation can have a dramatic impact on your homes comfort and reduce your energy bills.
The EPA estimates that 50% of energy costs are attributed to heating and cooling, making it one of the biggest expenses for homeowners. Hot air rises. Without air sealing your attic you are allowing warm air to escape from your home carrying with it your hard earned money. Most people just add insulation to their attic - this will not stop the air from escaping. In order for you to keep your hard earned money in your pocket, we need to seal the air in the conditioned living space and keep it from escaping into the unconditioned attic.
The first step to improving your home's efficiency and comfort is to air seal the attic. The attic is full of cracks and gaps that allows conditioned air that you paid for to escape from your conditioned living space into the unconditioned attic. Sealing these cracks and gaps will separate your unconditioned attic from your conditioned living space and increase your homes overall comfort while reducing your electric bill.
