Without air sealing your attic you are allowing warm air to escape from your home carrying with it your hard earned winter heating dollars. The EPA estimates that the typical American home has enough leaks, holes and gaps to be equal to an open window every day of the year. That is a significant loss of heat.
Most insulation contractors will just add insulation to your attic – this will not stop the escaping warm air. At Energy Smart Insulation, Inc, we will properly air sealing the tops of walls, drilled electrical wire holes, electrical outlet boxes for lights, pipes, recessed lighting, bathroom vent fan, chimney flashing, dropped soffits over lighting, cabinets, and slanted stairway access. Air Sealing along with an attic insulation upgrade can reduce your heating and cooling costs by up to 40%.
