Air leaks in your home can make your living space uncomfortable, unhealthy, and expensive to heat and cool. One of the best ways to upgrade your home is by air sealing your attic.
How Air Moves In and Out of Your Attic in the Summer
1. Hot air is less dense than cool air, creating air pressure differences between the indoors and outdoors.
2. If you have cracks and gaps in your attic, hot outside air enters, pushing the denser cool air down.
3. That cool air is forced out of your basement or crawlspace, allowing hot air to fill your home.
Signs That Your Attic Has Air Leaks
You can feel air moving through your home, even with the windows closed and the AC off.
It gets noticeably hotter on the second floor of your home on a summer afternoon.
High energy bills
The monthly electricity costs to run your air conditioning are on the rise.
Allergies & health issues
You develop outdoor or seasonal allergy symptoms, even when you’re inside your home.
