Apart from being huge storage for your discarded toys, unwanted bits and pieces, and broken furniture elements, your attic has a role in determining the temperature in the house. What is more, every attic is a great support to both adjacent structures and the roof. Knowing all that, proper attic insulation can be very important, especially during cold seasons. That is why DNB Construction LLC’s experienced roofers shared their thoughts on the benefits of attic insulation.
- Low utility bills
If there are problems with the insulation in the house, whether it is non-insulated or underinsulated, it is vital to turn the heather up to make living cozy in the winter months. On the contrary, when it is hot, it is necessary to turn the AC on. However, if there is adequate attic insulation, the need to rely on air conditioning systems or ventilation is less. In this way, attic insulation trims overall utility expenses.
- Prolonged life of all house materials
It is a fact that both moisture and heat can damage one’s house. But, attic insulation is there to act as protection that keeps water vapor away from eroding the walls. Plus, attic insulation prevents mold from growing and decaying plywood.
What is more, attic insulation protects the house by preventing ice dams from forming when it is cold. Proper attic insulation makes the roof cold and the snow doesn’t melt causing any damage.
During summer, attic insulation lowers the heat in the attic and prevents shingles from cracking and swelling. Importantly, attic insulation is beneficial since it stops plywood from softening.
Finally, proper attic insulation changes the temperature inside the house, so residents rely less on HVAC systems. Because HVAC systems do not work overtime to regulate the temperature, they can last longer.
- Much healthier indoor air
Attic insulation prevents entering all harmful elements that spread inside one’s home. That is why replacing old insulation removes pollutants accumulated over years. In houses with novel attic insulation, indoor air is safer, healthier, and cleaner for all residents.
- Finer indoor conditions
With attic insulation, comfortable and optimal temperatures inside are easily achieved. In winter, there is a layer of protection in case of freezing temperatures outside, so the home is cozy. On the other hand, in summer, attic insulation blocks heat to seep into the walls and roof. Plus, attic insulation keeps the cold air from the AC from getting out.
