Colorado weather can be unpredictable, to say the least. When the temperatures shift as often as they do, you may ask yourself if you’re wasting energy on your heating and cooling bills. Attics are often overlooked when it comes to energy efficiency, but air sealing the space can provide many energy saving solutions for your home.
Is Air Sealing the Attic Worth It?
Air leaks waste energy, making your home expensive to heat and cool. Air sealing keeps conditioned air inside of your home—where it belongs—while preventing outside air from entering. Not only can air sealing drastically reduce the cost of your utility bills, there are many other benefits it can provide you, and your Colorado home.
- Better indoor air quality
- Reduced pest infestations
- Consistent temperatures in every room
- More comfortable home
- Longer life for HVAC systems
The cost of air sealing an attic depends on the size of your home and how complicated the air leaks are. Every home is different and air leaks can happen anywhere, from the attic to your windows and doors. When deciding if air sealing is the right choice for your home, the best place to start is with a home energy audit.
Advantages of Drone Energy Audits
A home energy audit is a whole-home analysis of a home’s energy efficiency. Part of every audit includes using thermal imaging to detect any air leaks, which most commonly occur from the roof. With the use of drone technology, an auditor can conduct a more accurate assessment faster, and safer than ever before. Infrared diagnostic testing allows for drone assisted inspections to detect problems unseen by the human eye like:
- Improper attic venting
- Underinsulated areas
- Air & water leaks
