Busting the Myth: Does Insulation Make Your Home Too Airtight?

2 min read

Debunking a Common Insulation Misconception

At Complete Insulation, we often encounter various myths and misconceptions about home insulation. One of the most persistent is the idea that proper insulation can make your home “too airtight,” leading to poor indoor air quality and moisture problems. Today, we’re here to debunk this myth and explain why good insulation is essential for a healthy, comfortable home.

The Myth: Insulation Creates an Airtight Seal

Some homeowners worry that adding insulation will seal their house like a plastic bag, trapping moisture and pollutants inside. This concern stems from a misunderstanding of how insulation works and its purpose in your home.

The Reality: Insulation and Ventilation Work Together

The truth is that insulation and proper ventilation are not mutually exclusive. In fact, they work hand in hand to create a comfortable and energy-efficient living space. Here’s why:

  • Insulation regulates temperature, not airflow
  • Modern homes are designed with ventilation in mind
  • Proper insulation can actually improve indoor air quality

How Complete Insulation Ensures Proper Balance

1. Home design and layout
2. Local climate conditions
3. Existing ventilation systems
