It’s no secret that attic insulation can save homeowners a ton of money in heating bills over the years, but what advantages does attic insulation have other than simple energy savings? Attic Insulation Labs is taking a quick look!
Energy savings is perhaps the most obvious advantage of attic insulation. Put simply, high-quality attic insulation traps more heat inside your home and requires you to spend less money on heating bills as a result. You could find yourself saving hundreds of dollars every month, which means that attic insulation pays for itself in no time! Attic insulation can also prevent your home from overheating in hot weather, which can lead to savings in electrical bills when you run your fans and A/C units. Older homes (pre-1980s) tend to have subpar attic insulation, so it is definitely worth looking into if your home predates this era.
Reducing your carbon footprint
The Department of Energy claims that installing attic insulation is one of the best things that homeowners can do to help the environment and reduce their carbon footprint. Insulating your attic with batt insulation or blown-in insulation (depending on your preference) inevitably leads to less demand for energy in your household. This creates less demand for fossil fuel-derived energy, a source of energy which continues to exploit the Earth’s vulnerable resources and negatively affect the environment.
Moisture damage prevention
Insulating an attic with blown-in insulation or batt insulation allows any snow on your roof to remain present until it naturally melts away. This is a good thing, as snow melting on your roof (due to escaping heat) can cause extensive damage via ice dams and moisture problems. Installing high-quality insulation allows you to prevent a cornucopia of moisture-related problems that can ruin your roof and your insulation itself. If you suspect that there are leaks or moisture problems in your attic, get in touch with Attic Insulation Labs (or your local attic experts) to get the problem checked out immediately.
