According to the U.S. Department of Energy Home Improvement Expert™ Factsheet
“Air sealing uncontrolled leaks and adding insulation between the attic and the home is one of the most cost-effective measures to improve your home’s performance. It can reduce your heating and cooling bills, improve comfort by stopping drafts, keep contaminants such as moisture, dust, and pests from entering your home, and reduce moisture-related durability problems.”
While the exact figure is sometimes debated, it has been estimated that 80% of American homes are under insulated compared to todays standards and offer little to no air sealing which allows air to leak between the attic and living space.
In the past builders were limited to conventional fiber insulation which is designed to delay heat loss but cannot air seal.
Today it is common for energy codes to require a combination of air sealing and insulation to help seal in heat during the winter and out during the summer.
