To understand why you need to air seal before you insulate, it's important to understand how air flows in your home. In the winter, the air you pay to heat will leak through the gaps in the ceiling into the attic, which makes your rooms colder and causes your furnace to run longer. In the summer, hot air from the outside moves into the attic and heats up the rooms directly below, forcing your air conditioner to work harder. These problems are made worse if you have ductwork in your attic.
The air sealing process begins with testing the attic to find where the leaks are. Once identified, we use an expanding foam to seal gaps and cracks and prevent air flow. This process is will make your insulation more effective and will help improve energy efficiency and home comfort.
