As winter approaches, having your attic well insulated is very important.
Hot air rises and will regularly transfer from a warm area to a cold one,
and as the weather becomes cooler, heat escapes your house more rapidly
due to inadequate roof insulation. So let’s take a look at the benefits
Reduced Energy Bills
Insulation reduces the amount of wasted energy in your home. When you insulate
your attic, you are essentially keeping all of the heat inside, thus,
not having your
heater on full blast throughout the day and saving money by not using it as often.
Prevent Moisture from Building Up
Steam typically generates from cooking or shower/bath use. The water vapor
derived from those things rises into the attic, as well as the roof, and
eventually condenses within the walls. This condensation could cause mildew
to form and damage to occur.
Prevent Damage in the Attic
The attic is often designated as a storage area. Sometimes is can be occupied
as an additional living space. Allowing the cold air to infiltrate the
roof may cause those stored items to decay and make the area unlivable.
Keeps Your Home Cool During Summertime
That’s right, it works both ways. Having proper attic insulation
will prevent the cool air in your home from escaping when it’s hot
and humid outside.
