Why is Proper Attic Insulation Important?

Don’t Overlook Attic Insulation

If you are moving into a new home or are currently in your place of residence, what does the attic insulation look like? What is its current state? Do you know if you need to have it redone? Are you completely unaware of its current state? If you answered I don’t know to most of these, it is probably time to get someone to take a look at your attic insulation.

Why is Attic Insulation Important?

When your attic isn’t properly insulated, it won’t effectively retain the temperature of your indoor environment. The attic and roof are often not airtight in many homes. That means hot or cold air could be escaping on a regular basis.

If you’re using an attic to just store things, you are misusing this space and potentially wasting money. Cooling or heating your home is around 50% of your overall energy bill.

Having proper insulation allows even temperature distribution to flow throughout the home. It also has an effect on moisture control and contributes to the overall footprint of your home’s heating and cooling expenditure. It allows you to have better control over the temperature of your home.

Did you notice if your home wasn’t staying as cool as you wanted this summer? Did you find yourself cranking up the thermostat on a more frequent basis? You could have been experiencing cool air leaking through your windows and insulation.

During the cooler seasons, about 25% of the heat circulating through your home is lost through the attic if your insulation was installed improperly. We all know how quickly time flies, which means the colder months are approaching sooner than we’d like. If your attic isn’t sealed up properly, you may as well be throwing actual money out the window.
