Improving your attic insulation is one of the most effective ways to improve home comfort and energy efficiency, especially when it’s hot out. Is it time to update your attic?
Signs of an Under-Insulated Attic
High Energy Bills
High energy bills may mean heat is entering through the attic in the summer and escaping through the attic in the winter.
Varying temperatures from room to room could be a sign that there are gaps in your attic insulation.
A hot upstairs in the summer is a sign that heat from the attic is seeping down through under-insulated areas.
Drafts occur when heat rises into an under-insulated attic, creating a suction effect that pulls outside air in from below.
How Attic Insulation Works
- Outside heat hits the roof and enters the attic.
- If the attic is under-insulated, heat seeps down into your living spaces.
- If the attic is well insulated, unwanted heat stays out of your home.
Benefits of Proper Insulation
Insulating the attic offers a number of benefits for your entire home:
- More consistent comfort
- Cooler upstairs rooms
- Increased energy efficiency
- Lower energy bills
- Fewer indoor drafts
- Fewer HVAC repairs
