Here is a picture of an HVAC chase entering the attic from the master bedroom. There is no blocking/spray foam sealing the duct. This is an example of a gap in the thermal boundary. Although it may seem minor, when you add up all the little gaps and unsealed penetrations between the attic and thermal boundary this can equal higher cooling bills . . . and higher blower door numbers!
