Proper insulation and sealing can dramatically increase the overall energy efficiency and lower heating and cooling costs. Additionally your home will stay at a more even temperature for more comfort. Your HVAC will run less and last longer. Sealing attic penetrations will stop a lot of the air movement through the walls into the living areas by way of electrical outlets, switches, and other openings in the sheet rock.

Unfortunately, up to 90% of homes built before 2007 have some type of duct leakage. This means they are losing conditioned air to the attic and are drawing in hot/cold air through the return. If the return leaks add up to even a one inch hole; that is the equivalent to a 30 inch hole open into your attic every time your unit runs. The returning air is dusty, hot/cold and full of humidity. During the summer, This humid air contains more heat than dry air which makes the air fill warmer to the skin. This makes your home feel hotter than it is. This causes your HVAC has to work harder and costs you money!
Without proper ventilation, tremendous heat builds up, which is then transferred into the living area. Insulation can only slow down this movement. (more insulation the slower the heat movement), but It will get into the living area. Active air movement will exhaust this hot air build up and allow insulation to do its job.
The above improvements will pay for themselves over time and are the most relevant to Comfort and Energy savings.
