Do I need a contractor to seal air leaks in my home? Follow

No. You can do-it-yourself.  Once you know what to look for, you can seal air leaks all around your home on your own.  When everything is sealed, adding insulation  will make your home more comfortable.  

On the other hand, hiring a home energy-efficiency expert can be a good thing.  Contractors have experience along with tools and instruments to find problem areas quickly. They know the proper materials to seal leaks and can add insulation efficiently.
