Attic Has Air Leaks Sealed and is Insulated to R-49 Level
Location: Cheshire, OR
This home's attic did not have enough insulation to keep in the warm air, so the homeowner was cold in the winter. This comes from all the cracks where air was leaking out of the attic plus the inadequate level of insulation. Even though there was some attic insulation (see the Before photo), there were too many places where it was inadequate. Warm air likes to find its way out, and this attic gave it ample places to escape. Our Insulation Crew sealed the air leaks and then blew in TruSoft cellulose insulation to the R-49 level (see After photo) that is recommended as the minimum level to be effective.
