Reduce Costs & Improve Air Quality with Our Attic Air Sealing

Attic air sealing is one of the best ways to reduce energy costs in your home. As heat rises, it makes its way to your attic, where it can easily leak out if the area is not properly sealed. Bradley Mechanical's certified technicians are well-versed in the art of attic sealing and can help you improve your home and lower utility bills with just a simple call.

Our Certified & Trusted Attic Air Sealing Process

When sealing an attic, all insulation is removed along with any flooring. Our professionals then inspect the area for any leaks, penetrations, or holes to identify problem areas. While these imperfections can occur over time, they're often put in place during your home's construction or renovation. Contractors will use the attic to conceal wiring, piping, and ductwork. They may also forgo sealing wall plates, joists, attic hatches, knee walls, light penetrations, and more to reduce costs and labor. While this may benefit your home's aesthetics or the new construction budget, it can leave behind a lot of areas for warm air to escape.

Our attic air sealing process starts by foam sealing the most common leak areas, including electrical, plumbing, and HVAC wire and piping holes. We seal these areas with a two-part foam as well as sealing all band boards, flues, chimneys and lights. By sealing your attic, you can stop many major air leaks and help maintain the desired temperature throughout your home. Once complete, your attic will not only help you save money, it can become a more pleasant space to utilize.

Enjoy the Benefits of Attic Air Sealing

Combined with attic insulation, air sealing can drastically lower your energy bills. Attic sealing helps out your HVAC system, allowing it to do its job without going into overdrive. Additional benefits include better indoor air quality as well as preventative measures against moisture buildup that could lead to mold and mildew growth. Attic air sealing is a great way to invest in your home and protect it from future problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is attic air sealing so important?

Before insulating your attic, it is essential to have it air sealed. Air sealing will keep heated air from escaping into the attic during the winter and keep hot air in the attic from entering your home during the summer. This will make the environment in your home more comfortable and lower your annual energy bills, as your HVAC system will not need to work as hard to maintain air temperatures.

What is involved in attic air sealing?

Attic air sealing involves blocking off the air that flows through holes and gaps in the attic's walls, ceiling and floors. While some may consider this a do-it-yourself job, we recommend hiring trusted professionals like Bradley Mechanical to thoroughly inspect your attic for leaks. The process starts by pressurizing your home with a blower door kit to help reveal leaks in the attic that aren't easily detected visually or without the proper tools. All of the insulation is removed to help inspect for leaks, which is not only a difficult but potentially harmful process if not performed with the proper protection and equipment.
