You’ll reduce heating and cooling bills, give your furnace and air conditioner a break, and improve the comfort in your home. For a free home insulation evaluation, call Henges Insulation today.

Attic Insulation Greatly Reduces Energy Bills

When we think of insulation, we usually associate it with keeping our home warm in the winter season, but insulation helps just as much in the summer months. Attics can reach sweltering temperatures of up to 150 degrees in the summertime. Having a hot attic and little insulation between it and the rest of your home means that, on a hot day this extreme heat can “leak” into your home through your ceilings.

The decision to insulate your home should never be a difficult one. Insulating your home can be done in the construction phase, the remodeling phase, or really anytime you want to increase your home’s energy efficiency.

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.

How effective insulating your home will be depends on the quality of the installation job. If the material used is high quality, but spots are missed during the job, the material will not be able to properly insulate the home as it should.
