Seal Leaks to Improve Energy Efficiency
Reduction of heating and cooling costs can be maximized by both insulating AND air sealing. The general concept of air sealing is to stop leaks throughout the home that cause drafts. Many air leaks can be found with little difficulty, such as those at windows and doors. However, holes and drafts at basements, attics, and crawlspaces are usually the source of most issues. Sealing these sources of leaks with caulk or spray foam will have a tremendous impact on improving your comfort and reduce utility expenses.
“Sealing and insulating the “envelope” or “shell” of your home — its outer walls, ceiling, windows, doors, and floors — is often the most cost-effective way to improve energy efficiency and comfort.” – U.S. Department of Energy
