Air leaks can weaken the performance of your HVAC system. It can lower indoor air quality as the dust and debris are not adequately cleaned. Sealing your attic and installing proper attic insulation can reduce dust and dirt buildup and improve allergy symptoms.

    Moisture Prevention: The temperature of your living room is significantly different from your attic. Water damage is likely to be found in the attic place because of the leak in the roof. Moisture problems can easily lead to mold damage which can cause health issues and compromise your house structure. An air sealing system, attic ventilation project and attic insulation can prevent all these potential problems.

    Even Temperature: It’s not desirable to see one of your rooms significantly hot and the other cold. Your HVAC system is designed to make the different parts of your home have an even temperature. But air leaks will prevent your system from distributing air evenly throughout your home. It’s highly recommended to hire a technician and have a home energy audit test to find the air leaks and equip your home with an air sealing system as soon as possible.

    Saving Energy and Money: All the things a homeowner does, including sealing different parts of the home, is to save money and energy. Air leaks can significantly impact the heating and cooling system and make your home less efficient than you want. Sealing and insulating your home, especially the attic place, will help you save money and energy over time.
