Before you start an insulation project, first check for air leaks that need to be sealed off. Air sealing helps stabilize the temperature in your home by creating an air barrier against leaks that let in outdoor air. Sealing can help lower your monthly heat and electric bills and reduce demand on your heating and air conditioning units, thus extending their lives as well.
Air sealing is often done inside an attic before insulation is installed. Together, air sealing and insulation can make a noticeable difference in your comfort and utility costs.
Air Sealing Boosts Proper Attic Ventilation. Air sealing closes off bypasses in the attic’s air pressure boundary to keep attic temperatures stable. In cold weather, this stability helps roof temperatures remain cold and prevents ice dams from forming, which can cause serious roof damage. In warmer weather, air sealing prevents hot air from entering the attic and lowers the energy needed to expel hot air.
Air Sealing Keeps Moisture Outside. Another benefit of air sealing is that it also keeps the attic dry. By keeping moisture out, insulation stays dry and does its job to stabilize attic temperature
