Last year I had a free Energy Star inspection of my house after I had some brick work done. They installed a fan at the front door and created negative pressure throughout the house. I ran around finding the air leaks and one of the biggest was the sill plate separating the basement block and house foundation. Once it cools off around here I'm thinking of caulking this heat robber. I can't do it from the inside because there are just too many things in the way like pipes, hanging ceiling, wires, and other obstacles. Can I caulk the outside? I have T-111 wood siding that comes down over that sill about 2 inches, so it would be easy to caulk between it and the block. Or does it need that gap to breath?
