Attic Insulation

Attic insulation is one of the most important ways to cut your energy bill. If you don’t have enough, you will certainly pay more in the winter to heat your home. Likewise, in the summer, attics reach temperature upwards of 130 degrees, so without proper attic insulation, you could be paying more to cool your home.

On this attic insulation blog, I will explore several options to help you heat and cool your home more efficiently. Should you replace your old insulation with blow attic blow in insulation? How should you install attic insulation? Is it really that important?

How can you add more attic insulation, and what brand should you use? Does batt insulation still work at well as newer types?

Finally, I will consider what other types of attic ventilation technologies may help you. An attic fan provides a good cooling mechanism during the summer. Solar attic fans are powered by the sun, and remove the need for an electrical outlet to be installed.

Stay tuned as I consider all of the options for attic insulation.
