Every Nashville homeowner wants their home to be comfy throughout every passing season.

Air Sealing 101

Every home or building has small gaps or holes in various places, such as attics, basements, and crawl spaces, that allow air to leak out of the building or pass through the structure. You may not think much of these small gaps, but they cost you money and comfort every month they go unsealed and unnoticed. Air sealing seals these leaks and closes the gaps.

The Benefits of Air Sealing

Your entire family will benefit from air sealing your home. Air sealing:

Where to Air Seal

The biggest places a home needs air sealing are in areas around the basement and attic. Some leaks are easily spotted, while others are smaller, such as around light boxes, plumbing stacks, and soffit drops.

Air sealing can be applied in new construction and existing buildings during a retrofit or remodel to complement fibrous insulation, such as fiberglass.

Keep in mind:

  • During construction or remodeling, take the extra step and air seal your top plates to reduce air transfer from conditioned living space to unconditioned attic space.
  • In retrofit applications or remodeling, air sealing is done in open cavities or in an attic after fiberglass or cellulose insulation is removed and before reinstalling.

But Isn’t Insulation Enough?

Many homeowners wonder if air sealing is needed when they’re already adding insulation to their home. While installing proper home insulation is extremely important, it’s often not enough. Fibrous insulations, such as fiberglass, are not air barriers and won’t seal air leaks. Although they provide excellent thermal protection, they don’t stop air from passing through small gaps and holes. When installing insulation, it’s important to combine air sealing with your insulation to maximize your home’s energy efficiency.

One type of insulation that combines air sealing and insulation in one easy step is spray foam insulation. This is a very popular choice among homeowners and may be the ideal solution for your home too.
