    Considerable Benefits of Air Sealing Your Attic

    About 40 to 55 percent of your home’s energy consumption belongs to the HVAC system. As a homeowner, you need to preserve your HVAC system carefully and keep it energy-efficient and functional if you want to save money on energy bills. However, having a newer energy-saving system alone isn’t enough. There are other factors besides an energy-efficient HVAC system that you need to consider if you want to make your energy bills less expensive and your home more comfortable. Our specialists at Weaver Eco Home can assess your home circumstances to determine what techniques you should use to get the full benefit of your HVAC system. One of those methods is air sealing your attic to prevent air leakage. Through cracks and chips in your walls, floors, and ceiling, outside air can enter your home. In most homes, an air sealing system prevents outside air from entering and keeps conditioned air inside. It is important, however, to have adequate attic insulation and attic ventilation to benefit from air sealing the most. If you are still not sure how sir sealing your attic is worth it, continue to read this blog.

    Improved indoor air quality: If one of the house’s residents suffers from asthma or other respiratory diseases, sealing your ducts throughout your house is a must. Although filters of your HVAC system can clear out dust and debris, air leakage can allow these particles to enter the air again. Generally, air leakage is an important cause of low-quality indoor air, and it’s bad for the health of you and your family members.

    Moisture control: The difference between the indoor temperature and your attic is considerable and can lead to moisture problems. As air vapor accumulates in your attic, it can make it moist, and you should control it before it causes serious problems. Moisture in your attic is the main cause of mold and mildew issues, and air sealing is a good preventative method if you don’t want to see any sign of mold in your house.

    Noise control: If you are a sensitive person or need to concentrate while working or studying carefully, the outside noise can be a big nuisance. Properly air-sealing your attic space, doors, and windows can reduce the annoying noises to help you have better sleep or concentration.

    Consistent temperature: Your HVAC system should distribute conditioned air evenly in all parts of your home. However, you may find some rooms cooler or warmer than others because the temperature is uneven due to the Inefficient performance of your system. The most vital thing to do in such cases is to reduce the pressure on your HVAC system by upgrading your attic insulation or adding window wraps to mitigate heat transfer or air sealing your attic. 

    Saving more money: Sealing and insulating your home can make your HVAC system work more effectively. As a result, energy bills will be less expensive, and you can save more money. You can also ask a professional energy auditor or professional recommendations to prevent more energy waste and make your home more comfortable.
