Another common question is what other simple methods of sealing and insulation can I do to my home to make it function better? In addition to proper sealing and caulking mentioned above, insulating behind tubs and showers, sealing at all air barriers are critical areas.
Use the right kind of insulation in the right areas, like blown in insulation where a lot of electrical or mechanical conditions occur in your thermal envelope.
In summary, invest in better insulation to get better results from the performance of your home. Be sure the work is managed so it gets done right. Build tight, ventilate right. Build the better box. These are simple solutions for small homes.
You don’t have to build an expensive home to get better results from the performance of your home.
