The combination of air sealing and attic insulation maximizes energy efficiency.
Why the attic is important to home energy efficiency and comfort
About 50% of energy costs are typically attributed to heating and cooling, making it one of the biggest expenses for many homeowers. Air leaks and drafts between the attic and the living space or outdoors, insufficient insulation, poor ventilation, and unisulated ductwork are some of the factors that can dramatically impact your home’s energy efficiency and cost you money.
The diagram below outlines some of the most important attic efficiency issues and how we can help fix them (click to enlarge).
Key steps for improving attic efficiency
- Air sealing: Air sealing is an essential aspect of energy efficiency. Gaps and cracks that allow the air you pay to heat and cool to escape into the attic cost you money, as does outside air entering the home through the attic. Eliminating air leaks isolates your attic and keeps the air you pay to heat and cool in the living space.
- Attic insulation: Under-insulated attics will cause problems such as uncomfortable rooms, uneven temperatures, and high heating and cooling bills. When your attic insulation is raised to the recommended levels, it will will prevent heat transfer between the attic and the rooms below, allowing your heating and cooling systems to run less frequently and for shorter times.
- Ductwork services: Ductwork in the attic has a huge impact on energy efficiency. Attics have more extreme temperatures than the living space, heating or cooling your ductwork accordingly. This means that in the winter, warm air is sent through cold ducts, cooling the air down and forcing your furnace to run longer to get your home to the right temperature (the reverse is true in the summer). This is obviously very inefficient, which is why duct sealing and insulation are essential to improving efficiency and reducing heating and cooling costs.
