☀️🛌 Bedroom al fresco?

Christy has been frustrated by the increase in her electric bills since her home was remodeled.

Why it matters: Some of the improvements we make to our homes can create other problems.

⚙️ How it works: Every hole or penetration in our structure must be air sealed, or it will increase our connection to the outside.

  • Hint: You don’t want your house connected to the outside.

🔬 Zoom in: In our discovery call, I found out Christy had over 30 recessed lights installed during the remodel.

  • Recessed lighting is one of the worst offenders for air leakage.
  • Installed correctly, every light should be sealed on the attic side with closed cell spray foam.

🥊 The bottom line: Air sealing separates the inside of your house from the outside.

P.S. The more I learn about building science, the more I am shocked by all the things we did wrong during our remodel. As I discover those things — and fix them — I’ll be sharing with you to help you avoid the same mistakes.
