Insulation and Sealing Air Leaks
- Add insulation in the attic (Consult a licensed electrician if wiring does not meet current standards).
- Upgrade insulation levels to an R-38 in the attic, R-19 in the walls, and R-19 in the floor (if located over a crawl space or unconditioned space).
- Have cellulose blown into walls that are not insulated (Consult a licensed electrician if wiring does not meet current standards).
