THINKING ABOUT WINTER NOW COULD PAY OFF BIG FOR YEARS!
Most people don’t think about winter in July, but preparing your home now for winter could pay off big. Given the increase in materials and heating costs, preparing your home now for the cold fall and winter months ahead offers the best chance to manage your utility costs in the coming seasons.
WHY ATTIC INSULATION IS IMPORTANT
Attic insulation helps your home stay cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Insulation can help prevent moisture problems, and reduce the chance your roof will develop ice dams which can cause significant and costly damage to your property.
If you have rooms that cool slowly in summer or take forever to warm up in winter, this could indicate areas in your attic where insulation is compressed or improperly distributed. To learn more about attic insulation click here.
OLD HOMES SHOULD BE ASSESSED
If you have a home older than 2000, your attic may not be insulated to recommended levels. The EPA and Energy Star have updated attic insulation recommendations. Click here for more information regarding attic insulation from the EPA>
