When you think of upgrading your home’s insulation, the attic is often the first area that comes to mind! This is the first area of a home that should receive an insulation upgrade. Do you know why it’s important to upgrade your home’s attic insulation?
- Air Flow. Air naturally moves upward through your house (from the ground to the sky). This means your home’s interior air that’s already been cooled or heated is naturally drawn up and out of your house. Adding insulation creates a thermal barrier to help keep air in. Air sealing your attic is an additional layer of protection to prevent air from moving around insulation and flowing out of the home.
- Energy Savings. Heating and cooling costs account for up to 50-70 percent of the energy used in an average home. Taking steps to improve your home’s energy efficiency and keeping conditioned air inside your home will help reduce energy bills and wear and tear on your HVAC system.
- Low Cost and High Return. Insulation has a high return on investment. Upgrading your home’s insulation will begin to pay back through lower energy bills on the first day it’s installed. To save even more, consider fiberglass insulation as a low cost option.
