Why the attic?
We all need to realize that insulation is not just needed for those cold winter months. A well insulated attic helps lower energy usage in the spring and in the summertime too. It helps stabilize a homes indoor temperatures year round. Everyone wants to keep our homes cool in the summer and good insulation keeps the hot air outside just where we want it. Then in the winter all that warm air that is produced from the furnace rises straight up, and if we don’t have proper insulation in the attic that means the heat is escaping right out. Remember warm air travels to cool air, so not only is it super cheap and easy to insulate an attic but that is where we lose most of our heat. It is cost effective and we will see the benefits right away.
