Do you want to improve the energy efficiency of your home? If it’s not properly insulated and air sealed, there is significant room for improvement. Approximately 40 percent of a home’s heat loss can be caused by air leaks—which is why air sealing is so important.
Sealing Air Leaks in Your Home
Because attics are major sources of energy loss in homes, they are one of the best places to air seal. They aren’t the only area to focus on, though.
Common locations of air leaks in homes include:
- Windows and doors
- Electrical outlets
- And more
Signs you need to insulate and seal air leaks in your home include:
- Higher than normal energy bills for the time of year
- Dirty or stained insulation in the attic
- Uncomfortably warm second story
- Air conditioner running more than normal
- Icicles or ice dams on the roof
- Uneven temperatures from room to room
In other words, air sealing can help your home become more comfortable and help save you money.
