Despite a layer of fiberglass insulation, this attic was still letting cold, drafty air into this Bridgeport house. While the existing fiberglass insulation added some insulation value, it didn't stop the problematic air leaks. To fix this problem, we first had to remove the ineffective fiberglass insulation. Next, weair-sealed the attic with ecpanding foam, sealing all cracks that air seeps into the house from. Additionally, we upgraded the insulation to our TruSoft blown cellulose insulation. Air-sealing the attic, combined with an attic insulation upgrade, cut this home's heating and cooling costs up to 40%!
