Has someone suggested insulating your attic as your next home improvement project? You may be wondering how that it would be beneficial to your home, especially since you can’t see the results. However, insulating your attic has numerous benefits. Here are a few.
When your attic isn't properly insulated, you may experience significant heat loss as a result. Insulating your attic can stop heat loss and save you money on your monthly energy bills. Insulating your attic can keep your home cooler in the summer so you use less air conditioning and warmer in the winter so you use less heat. Insulating your attic may save you as much as 50 percent on your monthly heating or cooling bill, depending on how much insulation you use.
When your attic isn't insulated properly, if you live in a cooler climate you may end up with more ice and snow buildup on your roof. Over time that ice and snow buildup can damage the structure of your roof and cost you thousands of dollars in repair. Having a properly insulated roof can help cut back on potential damages because ice and snow won't build up as much due to a higher presence of heat.
Help the Environment
Not only does insulating your attic help you save money and cut back on potential damages, but it could help protect the environment. Because a well-insulated attic cuts back on the amount of energy consumption, it creates a smaller carbon footprint thanks to fewer greenhouse gas emissions. By insulating your attic, you're doing your part to help the environment.
