Energy efficiency is about more than insulation. An efficient attic includes air sealing. According to the Department of Energy, having your home air sealed by a qualified contractor can save up to 20% on heating and cooling costs.
Your home may have leaks that are easily to see through a simple visual inspection. Your home also has many air leaks that can’t be easily seen. These are commonly found around light boxes, plumbing stacks, soffit drops, basement box sills and more. Having your home professionally air sealed and adding proper mechanical ventilation can help keep conditioned air in, pests and allergens out and ensure your home has proper air exchange.
Even newer homes can benefit from upgraded insulation. As building codes increase, nearly all homes need more insulation to ensure they are meeting current standards.
