Air infiltration is the number one cause of energy loss in American homes. Your conditioned air seeps through cracks and crevices in your floors, ceilings and walls and escapes to the outside of your home. This causes your heating and cooling system to run more frequently which increases your energy bills. The idea behind air sealing your home is fill those gaps & protrusions with expanding foam insulation that will slow down the air leakage & trap the conditioned air inside your living space where it belongs.
Due to air pressure, there is a natural flow of air that comes up through the basement, goes through the conditioned living space and exits out of the attic. This process is known as the stack effect. Since your home is not totally air sealed, the stack effect will cause air infiltration. During the winter months, the warm indoor air rises up through the building and escapes through the attic,through small gaps, ventilation openings, or unintentional holes in ceilings, like ceiling fans and recessed lights. The rising warm air reduces the air pressure the basement which draws cold air in through the basement doors, rim sill joists or other openings in your foundation. During the cooling season, the stack effect is reversed. In the summer, your cool air seeps out of the attic and is replaced by the warm outside air. This causes higher utility bills, a drafty home and an unsatisfied homeowner.
