This is the finished product, before we air sealed, these top plates had gaps, allowing unconditioned air into the living space
The top of this bedroom closet was completely connected to this child's bedroom. Now this room will not have unconditioned air infiltrating the area and no more insects creeping down the insides of the walls... plus they will save on their energy bill!
Not everyone understands what air sealing or draft blocking is. We here at Shepherd's Insulation not only know how to do it properly, but we can help educate you in this area! Your attic is an unconditioned space, in this space you can have critters, insects, and connection to your living space. This connection not only makes your HVAC system work harder, but it makes your home uncomfortable. In this photo, you can see where we disconnected the attic from the living space, making this home owner much more comfortable. Comfort is always the first complaint, but if you can save money while making yourself comfortable we consider that a great side effect!
