Why Attic Insulation?

Insulation prevents heat from escaping from your home in the winter, while correctly built insulation allows air to flow through your home in the summer to ventilate it and keep it from overheating.

Why Is It Important To Have Well Insulated Attic?

To keep out the weather, homes need more than just shingles on the roof. To keep the house at a comfortable temperature, the insulation and ventilation in the attic must work with the roof structure.

Good attic insulation systems help homeowners and residents in the following ways:

  • Made energy use more efficient. Putting in the right insulation in the attic can cut down on the amount of energy needed to heat a home, which could lead to lower energy bills.
  • Leave less carbon behind. The energy used in homes and buildings is the biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions. By putting insulation in the attic, you can keep energy from escaping through the roof, which is the part of a house that loses the most heat. It is an easy and cheap way to cut down on carbon emissions and help the environment.
  • The roof will last longer. With the right insulation in the attic, water and ice dams won’t be able to build up on the roof. This will protect the shingles and make them last longer.

Insulation prevents heat from escaping from your home in the winter, while correctly built insulation allows air to flow through your home in the summer to ventilate it and keep it from overheating. Attic insulation from offers homeowners a number of advantages, including cost savings, easier maintenance, and improved comfort. It takes more than just shingles to build a roof that works properly. Your home will stay cooler and use less energy when your roof, attic insulation, and roof ventilation are all properly maintained. Your electric cost might drop between 50%-20% if your attic is properly insulated.
