Save Energy With Attic Insulation
Most homes suffer from inadequate insulation and air leakage leading to higher energy consumption. When you consider that 50-70% of the energy used in the average American home is for heating and cooling, finding ways to lower these costs makes good sense. Insulation can save you money by helping to maintain a uniform temperature in your home no matter what the season.
Lower Heating & Cooling Costs with Blown In Insulation
Heat naturally flows from a warmer space to a cooler one. During the cold of winter, the warmth created by your furnace will flow out any way it can, mostly through the roof, losing the energy to the outdoors. In the same way, the baking heat of summer will cause your attic to act like an oven and transfer that heat to the inside of your home, making second floor living space uncomfortable and causing your air conditioner to work harder. Insulation works by limiting air movement, stopping the flow of air from warm places to cold ones. That means installing insulation in your attic can decrease the amount of heating or cooling needed because it provides resistance to the flow of heat, from a warm place to a cold one.
