Attic Air Sealing Service
If you have found mold in your attic, this is likely due to excess moisture, which likely comes from air leaks or gaps in your attic’s insulation. If you have found mold in your attic or want to ensure that there are no leaks (due to energy conservation concerns) it may be time to seek out a professional attic air sealing service. At Attic Renew, our team of attic sealing contractors are highly trained and have a lot of experience in our field.
Ensuring your attic has no air leaks is important for a few reasons. First, hidden air leaks in your ceiling cause tremendous energy consumption and help carry moisture into your attic. Hidden air leaks in a home can account for up to an estimated 25% of your energy costs, and the moisture that builds up will eventually lead to mold.
It is important to seal all small gaps that are spilling warm air into the attic. These gaps are visible once the insulation has been removed. These gaps should be filled with expanding foam.
Besides increasing your energy consumption, air leaks also damage your house’s structural integrity. The air that leaks out must be replaced and is usually drawn from the ground. Without a proper vapor barrier installed, moisture will be absorbed as well, potentially resulting in mold development, water damage, or pest infestations.
Air sealing your attic will:
Reduce moisture into your attic and insulation
Increase indoor air quality - air from the outside is not sucked in to replace escaping air into the attic
Prevent mold development
Help eliminate drafts
Our attic air sealing service will identify air leaks stemming from your attic—one of your home’s most vulnerable points for heated and conditioned air to escape from. Contact us today and start reaping the benefits on future energy costs.
