When people are insulating their homes, they may overlook the attic. To help protect the home the attic must be properly insulated.
There are some benefits to adding insulation to the attic, including:
1. Lower Utility Bills
If the home has poor insulating a person can spend more money trying to get the home at a comfortable temperature. Proper insulation will help keep the heat in during the winter and the cool air in during the summer. This will help save money and the average homeowner saves around $800 a year on their utility bill.
2. Improved Air Quality
Mold, mildew, and dust can build up in the home and reduce the air quality. Insulating the attic can keep the air pollutants out of the home and allow the occupants to breathe cleaner air.
3. Improve the Structure of the Home
Insulating the attic can help prevent damage to the home. Over time excessive heat and moisture can lead to damage. Water vapor can build up and erode the walls and even damage the shingles on the roof. Insulation will also prevent ice dams from building on the edge of the roof. This will help reduce damage to the home over a period of time.
4. Reduce Wear on HVAC System
To keep the temperature comfortable in the home the HVAC system will need to work hard. Insulation in the attic will help keep the temperate constant and reduce the work of the HVAC system. This will allow the system to do less work and reduce the wear and tear.
The attic can help make the home a more comfortable and even a safer place to live. For the most energy savings and comfort, call Rescue Air Heating and Cooling today (972) 201-3253!
