A mold inspector told me to get this new company to completely seal off the attic with some kind of foam -- no vents at all - gable, ridge, soffit. He said it would save a tremendous amount on heating and cooling bills and would not encourage mold. Somehow, this does not seem right as I thought attics were supposed to breathe and not be all sealed up with no ventilation. Also, how would you know if you had a leak. It seems mold would actually like this type of attic.
If anyone has any thoughts on this please inform me. Thanks.
