Insulating and Air Sealing the Attic: Weatherization
Insulation can vastly improve comfort and energy use in both hot and cold climates. Adding insulation and sealing unintentional cracks and openings improves energy efficiency in cold climates. In warmer climates, the installation of radiant barriers in the attic may help reduce cooling costs when combined with attic weatherization.
