*Professional installation is recommended for most projects. Self-installers should acquire the necessary expertise to guarantee a quality installation and ensure that the resulting work will not compromise the safety and integrity of the home. Most air leaks that cause drafts can be sealed without problems, but caution must be taken when tightening a home. Air pressure differences and inadequate ventilation can result in backdrafting of combustible appliances, moisture and condensation problems and unsafe levels of contaminants including carbon monoxide and radon.When adding insulation, caution should be taken to avoid creating a vapor barrier where condensation can occur.
