How Attic Insulation Affects the Whole Home
Posted in Attic Insulation, on May 14, 2020
With home insulation, as well as energy efficiency, it’s not uncommon for homeowners to focus on the main floor of their home. At the same time, companies that offer home insulation services are busy explaining that the attic should be the real area of focus.
In most residential homes, the overall benefits of home insulation are best realized when the attic space is well sealed and well insulated. It means that quality attic insulation is the key to indoor comfort, less energy consumption, and improved indoor air quality.
Understanding Heat Loss and Heat Transfer
In summer, a poorly insulated attic will get very hot, with the accumulated heat infiltrating into and the home. In response, the AC system works harder to cool the home, which then results in high cooling bills and additional wear and tear on the AC equipment.
In winter, a poorly insulated attic allows heated indoor air to rise up to the attic and escapes out. As such, indoor comfort is compromised, as warm indoor heat is lost. Here again, there is added wear and tear on the heating system, along with increased utility bills.
Home Insulation Provides Home Comfort
Companies that offer home insulation services are typically focused on eliminating heat transfer, and especially in the attic and roof cavity. The idea is to keep heat inside the home during winter and prevent heat from intruding during the summer.
Depending on the geographic region, recommended levels of attic insulation may differ. However, installed R-Values are always designed to resist heat transfer. In regions where summers and winters are extreme, higher R-Values are necessary.
