When you think of upgrading insulation, attic space is the first thing that comes to mind. Here are three key reasons to upgrade your attic insulation and seal attic air leaks:
- Air movement through a home is from ground to sky (and out through the attic and roof). By adding insulation and sealing air leaks in your attic, you can lower energy costs by preventing conditioned air from escaping your home.
- On the flip side, insulating and air sealing your attic can prevent unconditioned outside air from coming into your home. This means your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain your home’s optimal inside temperature.
- Heating and cooling costs can total 50% to 70% of the energy used in an average home. In fact, in late 2016 the Energy Information Administration predicted natural gas users would see a 22% climb in their heating bills over the 2015-2016 heating season. Every day that passes is one more day you are spending too much money on energy bills.
Adding insulation to your attic is one of the most cost effective ways to save money on your energy bills each month. Wondering if your home could benefit from additional attic insulation? Contact us today for a free attic insulation estimate.
