Cracks and gaps in attics can be an unfortunate and unavoidable aspect of owning a house.

How attic gaps impact your home
Air sealing can make huge difference with your home. The following gives a quick glance at how air gaps negatively effect your living spaces in different seasons.
Summer. Humid and hot air from outdoors moves into your attic during the summer. That is part of the reason why your attic becomes so hot and uncomfortable during the summer months. The hot air also heats up rooms below the attic. Sealing cracks and openings to the outside will stop air transfer.
Winter. Warm air naturally rises. This includes the warm air you paid to heat your home. If gaps are present in your ceilings or attic floor, warm air will leak into the attic, causing your furnace to work harder and longer to keep the house at an ideal temperature.
How we seal air gaps
So how do we seal gaps and prevent air flow for good?
The first step of sealing area is thoroughly examining and testing the attic walls, floors and ceiling to identify where leaks are present. After we know where the gaps are located, we use a special expanding insulation foam to prevent the transfer of air.
The result is a more efficient and comfortable house, and your HVAC system will not have to run as long to heat or cool your living areas.
