IT PAYS INSULATION YOUR ATTIC
Attic insulation can dramatically reduce energy consumption and related costs. In fact, attic insulation is an investment with a short-term ROI.
ATTIC INSULATION CONTROLS ROOM TEMPERATURES YEAR ROUND
In summer, attic insulation minimizes heat from your attic pass down to the living spaces below. That means your air conditioner will run less to keep rooms comfortable. In winter, attic insulation minimizes the transfer of heated air from the living space up to the attic.
MOST ATTICS IN THE US ARE UNDER-INSULATED
Research studies have revealed that the vast majority of US homes are not sufficiently insulated to current energy standards. Building codes for new homes have increased attic insulation requirements, but older homes are poorly insulated and could benefit from increasing attic insulation levels.
WEAR AND TEAR ON YOUR HVAC SYSTEMS
Running your air conditioner or furnace more often not only costs you more on monthly utility bills but the added wear and tear will also shorten the lifespan of these systems leading to premature repairs and/or replacement.
ATTIC INSULATION ROI
A recent study by Remodeling Magazine publishes an annual Cost vs. Value report for home improvement investment in which they show national and regional average prices for a set of typical home improvements then measure the return on the investment.
Fiberglass insulation in the Midwest region topped the list for the best return on investment both years, scoring 107% returning more value than the existing investment, and the only upgrade on the list to do so.
ATTIC VENTILATION IS ALSO IMPORTANT
While it does pay to insulate your attic, insulation alone won’t prevent heat buildup or moisture problems in your attic. The right combination of attic ventilation and sufficient attic insulation is the key to a properly configured attic space. Click here to learn more about attic ventilation.
AFFORDABLE UPGRADES THAT PAY FOR THEMSELVES
Attic insulation and proper ventilation combined save you money over time by reducing utility costs all year round by as much as 40%, extending the life of your HVAC systems while protecting your roof from heat damage in summer and moisture problems in winter.
