Warm air always seeks to move to the colder side of a surface. Insulation prevents warm air from conducting through walls and ceilings to the colder side of the walls and ceilings. So it helps keep warm air from conducting out of your home in the winter and into your home in the summer.
However, most types of insulation do not prevent warm and cold air from leaking in and out of holes in the attic floor and basement around plumbing pipes, conduit, electrical boxes, cable wiring, vents, recessed lighting, wall joists and access panels. Therefore, most types of insulation should never be installed without first air sealing the leaks.
Green Energy Improvement has the experience and expertise to properly seal the air leaks and install the type of insulation best suited for your home’s needs. For a detailed list of insulation characteristics, please see energy.gov/energysaver/articles/types-insulation.
