What Areas Should be Air Sealed First?

Air sealing different areas in your house will eliminate any source of cold air infiltration, but you have to prioritize the rooms that are going to make the biggest difference first. Since air leaks are commonly found in the attic, crawl space and basement, these are the best places to start. The attic should always have air sealing done first and foremost because it's where the most leakage and energy loss occurs. Then air sealing the basement and crawl space should be the next priority before you can move on to the conditioned space, the main living area in your home.

Caulking and weatherstripping are effective and affordable air sealing strategies for quick results. While caulk is commonly used for sealing cracks and gaps around stationary window and door frames, weatherstripping is effective for sealing moving objects, windows and doors.

Caulking and weatherstripping are solutions for air leaks, but there is a good chance that you have other open cracks and crevices around your home that you can't see. However, with a home energy evaluation and blower door test, we can locate and repair hidden air leaks and energy loss around your home.

Insulation and Air Sealing Together

If you want to really enhance your home comfort and energy efficiency, it's important to make sure your home is properly insulated once air sealing has been done. There are many different types of insulation with various insulating values and air sealing properties so let Weatherization Plus technicians help you find the best insulation to compliment your air sealing strategy.

If you simply want to reduce air leakage with insulation, foam insulation can be blown into walls, attic spaces and between floor joists. If you're using rigid foam insulation panels, spray foam, foil tape or caulking can be applied between the panels to create a tight seal; and fiberglass, cellulose or rockwool insulation can be installed in your exterior walls to effectively reduce year-round air infiltration and improve your overall home comfort and energy efficiency.
