The Truth About Attic Insulation
Most people don’t give their attic second thought, but the truth is that if your attic is poorly insulated and not cleaned, you’re inviting a whole host of problems into your home, such as:
- High Energy Bills — Since the heat in your home rises to the attic, if you have poor insulation, it escapes through the ceiling. Good insulation keeps the heat in and puts less wear and tear on your furnace so you pay less in energy bills
- Hotter Home in Summer — If you don’t have adequate insulation the sun’s rays penetrate your roof and make your home hotter than it should be
You can see why it’s essential to clean your attic and install enough insulation to keep your home comfortable all year around.
How Much Insulation Do I Need?
Having enough insulation in your attic or crawlspace is a great way to save money on your energy bills and ensure your home is warm in winter and cool in summer. But how much is enough? Insulation is expressed in what’s called R-value, which ranges from 2.0 to 8.0 per inch. A higher R-value means the insulation is more effective. The U.S Dept. of Energy says the attic should have R-38-R-49 of fiberglass or cellulose insulation. If you’re confused about what is best for your home, call One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning and ask for our recommendation.
