How air sealing is more important than insulation

Don’t get us wrong, insulation is important. 40% of a home’s annual energy budget is consumed by heating and cooling. Choosing the right insulation and installing it correctly are important steps to maximizing a home’s energy efficiency

Air sealing is a vital part of saving energy and saving money. Air sealing around windows and doors, in attic penetrations and more helps heated and cooled air stay inside the home. By closing the gaps that leak air you keep already conditioned air (air you’ve paid to heat or cool) inside your home.

Think of air sealing like closing a window before running air conditioning – why condition the interior air if you are going to let it sneak out through a gap in your home’s envelope?
