A Small Investment in Attic Insulation Can Make a Big Difference

Considering that about half of a household’s entire energy bill goes to heating and cooling, and attic insulation is relatively inexpensive, there’s little money to be lost and lots to be gained from insulating your attic. You’ll reduce heating and cooling bills, give your furnace and air conditioner a break, and improve the comfort in your home. 

 Attic Insulation Can Make a Big Difference

If your home is older, it may not have any insulation in the attic. Or if you haven’t added to your insulation in years, it may be compressed and therefore less effective. Either way, you could be losing heating and cooling dollars every single day. Insulation works by trapping little pockets of air that then form an air barrier between the inside and outside temperatures. Because these pockets of air can’t move, they can’t travel through the insulation to transfer their heat. Over time, insulation settles, is introduced to moisture which weighs it down, and may even get walked on occasionally all of which presses these pockets of air out of the insulation making it less effective.

Henges Insulation & Fireplaces in Olathe, Kansas, is a leading contractor in the insulation and fireplace industries in the Kansas City area. We have provided high-quality products and services to builders, remodelers, designers, architects and homeowners since 1932. For a free home insulation evaluation, call Henges Insulation today.
