Air Seal Your Home
When you add attic insulation to your home, it’s a good idea to air seal your home at the same time. Air sealing consists of closing up all of the places in your house where hot air leaks out in the winter and in during the summer months, forcing your HVAC equipment to work harder. By sealing up all those leaky spots, your insulation will be much more effective.
Soffit fascia and blown-in attic insulation will help keep your HVAC equipment work more effectively in the winter and summer months.
