Stop Attic Air Leaks

It is a common misconception that walls and ceilings do not have big perforations to cause air leaks.  The reality is most air leaks occur through the insulated attic space through:

  • Ducts
  • Openings around pipes
  • Openings around light fixtures
  • Vents
  • Chimneys
  • Wiring
  • Attic access

Attic air sealing can save more than 30% of your home’s energy expenditure on air conditioning.
