1. Air sealing
Reducing the amount of air that leaks in and out of your home is a cost-effective way to cut heating and cooling costs, improve durability, increase comfort, and create a healthier indoor environment. In addition to caulking and weather-stripping your home, PATH recommends these insulation alternatives to provide adequate air sealing in your home.
