Could Your Home Benefit from an Attic Air Sealing Project?

Did you know...A typical North American home spends 47% of their total energy use on space heating alone?

 

If your home is experiencing drafty rooms, uneven temperature between rooms, or high heating or cooling bills... you may be a good candidate for an attic air sealing project. Other common symptoms include dry indoor air in the winter, or dust (especially in rooms directly below the attic.)


The attic is where you can find some of the largest opportunities to save energy in your home. Air sealing in your attic, can stop many major air leaks. This will help to maintain the desired temperature throughout your home. Take a look at the diagram below of common air leaks. Notice the locations of all air leaking outside of the home. 

 

If you happen to notice these signs at home and find yourself in this situation, a comprehensive energy audit done by a home energy professional can pinpoint specific solutions and identify potential safety hazards.
