Assuring that your attic is properly ventilated, air sealed and insulated to the correct R Value is typically the most cost effective improvement you can make. Why is this? In our climate zone a very large portion of our annual energy costs for homes is heating & cooling. Warm air rises and if your attic is not insulated to the correct R value, and/or there is leakage from conditioned space to your attic, the air your’re paying to heat escapes up and out. This crates negative pressure low in the home such as around your basement or rim joists, or crawl space which draws cold outside air inside through any leakage there. This is known as Stack Effect, and creates an energy and comfort robbing cycle. The reverse happens in the summertime causing hot, humid air to infiltrate through the attic. This is why Air Sealing is so important before adding more attic insulation, and also why not addressing deficiencies in your attic and just buying new HVAC equipment misses huge savings. The new equipment may help some, but will have to work much harder than it should to maintain comfort. A properly sealed and insulated attic maximizes your heating and cooling system, be it existing or new.
Replacing old, inefficient, heating and cooling systems with new high-efficiency equipment, combined with air sealing & insulation improvements can greatly improve comfort and reduce costs. With the available rebates up to $7500 this can be an exceptionally cost effective package.
