What areas of the house are most important?

It's important to seal leaks in the basement and crawl space areas because of the significant leakage that occurs in these spaces. Taking care of these unconditioned spaces eliminates a major source of cold air infiltration.

Air sealing strategies

Are caulking & weatherstripping enough to seal leaks?

Caulking and weatherstripping are easy and effective air-sealing techniques that can provide quick money-saving results. Caulk is typically used to seal cracks and openings around stationary door and window frames, and weatherstripping is used to seal moving objects such as operable doors and windows. Caulking and weatherstripping can be used to solve obvious air leakage, but there are likely more cracks and openings around your house that you can't see. A home energy audit and blower door test can help identify all the areas where your home is losing energy. 

Insulation should be part of your air sealing project

To make the biggest impact on your home's comfort and energy efficiency, it's important to make sure that your home is properly insulated once air sealing is done. There are a variety of insulation options that offer insulating value as well as air sealing characteristics.

Foam insulation can be blown into walls and between floor joists to insulate and reduce air leakage. Insulating spray foam can be used to seal air leaks around window and door frames, and electrical and plumbing penetrations. If rigid foam insulation panels are used, spray foam, caulking or foil tape can be applied between the panels to create a tight seal.

If you need to add more insulation inside your home's exterior walls, dense-packed cellulose provides air sealing characteristics to reduce air infiltration year round, therefore improving energy efficiency and comfort.
