Attic insulation is an important part of your roofing system and when installed properly, it can offer many benefits.
A study done by the North American Insulation Manufacturers Association of Canada reveals that approximately 80% of homes in the country are under-insulated. When properly installed, insulation can significantly increase your home’s energy savings, especially if you live in an older home. Making sure you are properly insulated in the attic is a great place to start, as up to 25% of your home’s energy can be lost there. Proper insulation can save you money.
Does your home become uncomfortably warm in the summer and freezing in the winter? Having an improperly insulated attic may be a contributing factor. Proper insulation promotes the circulation of air in your attic, creating a more comfortable interior climate while also increasing the longevity of your roofing system. It is also helps reduce noise, coming in from the outside as well as between rooms inside. Overall, a properly insulated attic makes for a more comfortable home.
Insulating your attic not only benefits your home but the environment as well. Good insulation reduces the amount of energy your home consumes, resulting in less harmful gasses and carbon emissions.
What does having adequate insulation in your home or building mean to you?
For a relatively small cost, proper insulation in your attic can be extremely beneficial to you, your wallet and the environment.
