Air sealing is a process that involves the assessment of your attic for leaks and the treatment of those leaks to prevent air leakage. Many homes have an attic leaking air, which is a problem in both older and new homes. If air is escaping from your attic, your home’s comfort could diminish, and your energy bill could increase. Air-sealing your attic is an important home improvement you could benefit from in several ways. Below are some of the biggest reasons to air-seal your attic.
Attic air leakage can impact the level of energy consumption and energy cost. Leaks can cause thermal transfer and negatively impact your HVAC system’s operation, causing it to overwork and underperform. Correctly air-sealing your home’s attic will help to prevent air leaks and thermal transfer and help you to save energy, and as a result, spend less on monthly energy costs and HVAC repairs.
A loss of insulation can occur if you have a leaky attic, which means that air movement can cause temperature fluctuation throughout your home. Temperature fluctuations can make your home environment uncomfortable and affect your HVAC system’s performance by causing uneven air distribution. Air-sealing your attic will improve airflow and keep the temperature consistent throughout your home.
A roof leak is one way for moisture to find its way into your home, but your attic may be the culprit you never thought about. Although attic temperature tends to be inconsistent, there is typically a difference between your attic temperature and your indoor temperature. A leaky attic will always have varying temperatures. The shift in attic temperature can cause a buildup of moisture throughout your attic space. Your attic leak needs to be addressed if you want to control moisture accumulation. Air-sealing your attic will keep water at bay and, in turn, any moisture-related problems.
Many sources can produce noise entering your home’s interior, from your neighbor mowing the lawn, kids playing, trains, busy streets, to sirens on service vehicles. When you think your thin walls are the problem, you find out that your attic is leaky. Your attic may be a poor buffer against intrusive noise because its insulation is inadequate. Removing noise nuisance is possible by properly air sealing your attic spaces, creating a quieter and more comfortable indoor environment. Your noise complaints may just become fewer.
