The exterior of your home is called the "envelope" or shell. The insulation, outer walls, ceiling, door, windows, and floors all work together to control airflow in and out of the home structure, repel moisture, and prevent heat from being lost or gained weather inside or outside the door of your home.

Any air sealing efforts will complement your insulation efforts, and vice versa. Proper moister control and ventilation srategies will improve the effectiveness of air sealing and insulation, and vice versa. Moldy and dusty air can enter a leaky home through such areas as attics door strip or foundations due to weather. This air in the home could cause health problems.

The recommended sealing strategy in both new and old homes is to reduce air leakage as much as possible and to provide controlled ventilation  and insulation as needed.home energy products

Air leakage, or infiltration, occurs when outside air enters a home uncontrollably through cracks and openings. Properly air sealing, insulation & strip, such cracks and openings in your home can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs, improve building durability, and create a healthier indoor environment.

First, make a list of obvious air leaks (weather drafts). The potential l energy savings from reducing drafts in a home may range from 5 to 30% per year, and the home is generally much more comfortable afterward.
