Benefits of Attic Insulation

Did you know that your attic is one of the prime culprits for air escaping in your home? Think about all the hard work your heating and cooling systems do only to have some of that air leak out. What does that mean for you? It means you're probably spending more than you should be on energy bills. See below to find out why you should have a well-insulated attic and the difference between types of insulation: attic insulation Since the average U.S. family spends upwards of $1,900 a year on home utility bills and heating and cooling account for roughly 54% of that bill, it only makes sense to keep energy loss to a minimum. And that's where proper insulation comes into play. You may be familiar with the pink "itchy" stuff - or fiberglass insulation, but there are lots of options when it comes to materials. Fiberglass tends to work well in unfinished walls, floors and ceilings while we are starting to see loose-fill and blown-in insulation becoming more and more popular. Whichever option you choose, there are dozens of benefits! You can save roughly 20% on energy bills by having adequate roof insulation and you'll be happy to know that insulation costs usually pay for themselves in as little as five years.
