Homeowners often think of large-scale home projects as making the biggest impact. Simple upgrades can, in fact, bring huge savings, and these small wins can often be overlooked. One such upgrade is proper attic insulation.
All About Attic Insulation
Your home’s attic acts as a barrier between outdoor temperatures and the rooms inside your house. Naturally, heat rises, so if your attic isn’t properly insulated the warmth your heating system provides could be leaking out. Similarly, cool air your HVAC unit is pumping out in summer months could be wasted through an uninsulated attic. In fact, floors, crawl spaces, and attics are the three main areas in homes where heat and cool air tend to escape. Most homes in the United States are not properly insulated, and if your home is older, the likelihood that your attic is either uninsulated or poorly insulated increases.
It’s clear to see that a properly insulated attic can help with moderating the temperature inside your home, but there are additional benefits to this simple home upgrade.
Year-Round Savings & Other Benefits
- Reduce your home’s energy costs
Clearly this is a big win. Homeowners with professionally insulated attics can expect to save an average of 15% on heating and cooling costs.
- Improve your home’s air quality
Outdoor air pollutants may be entering your home through air leaks in your roof or attic walls. Dust, dirt, mold and mildew could be accumulating in your uninsulated attic and compromising the indoor air quality of your home. An insulation upgrade could help everyone in your home breathe easier.
- Preserve your home’s HVAC system
Older homes tend to be drafty, which means they can suck the energy right out of your hard-working HVAC system. Homes with multiple floors tend to have significant temperature difference between rooms on the main floor and the upper floors, which naturally causes homeowners to crank up the heat in winter months (or the air conditioner in the summer). This increases energy costs and stresses your HVAC system. Properly insulating your attic can give your system a much-needed break and give it a longer lifespan.
- Keep your home comfortable
Professionally insulated attics keep your desired home temperature more consistent throughout, no matter the weather. Attic insulation can also reduce outside noise pollution, upping the comfort level for the entire family.
