Let’s Talk About Air Sealing: Part 3
Wednesday, May 10th, 2017 by Joy Padgett
We’ve been talking about air sealing over the last couple of days. Yesterday we discussed just why air sealing is such a big deal. That conversation leads to this question…”If my home or business is air sealed, does that mean I don’t need insulation?”
That is a really good question.
The answer is “No it doesn’t mean that.”
Although air sealing is the solution to many comfort issues with a home or building, it doesn’t replace insulation. However, without air sealing, insulation won’t work properly. Insulation becomes little more than a giant filter if air is allowed to move through it. So, air sealing creates the perfect canvas for your insulation to perform at its highest.
Air sealing and insulation go hand in hand. You shouldn’t have one without the other, but, I bet you do!
