How Can Attic Insulation Keep Your Home Cool During the Summer Published on June 14, 2017 How can attic insulation keep your home cool during the summer? When you consider attic insulation, you may think about keeping your home warm; but did you know that attic insulation also helps with making sure your home keeps cool? The attic is where your home loses the majority of your cool air during the warm months and installing insulation in your attic, or upgrading to new, more efficient attic insulation, can help keep the cool air in your home instead of it getting away through the attic. How can attic insulation save you money on energy costs? Attic insulation can also help decrease energy use in your home, which can save you money on your utility bills. Cost savings varies based on multiple factors, including the resident’s habits, if you installed a smart thermostat, the type of cooling system in the home, etc. Usually, it’s estimated families could save up to 20% on cooling bills when you add the recommended amount of attic insulation. If you have insulation, you may need to confirm the age and see if it’s to the EPA guidelines for energy efficiency. Also, if the insulation has compressed, it could not be effective anymore. If you want to have your attic insulation assessed, or are thinking about installing new insulation, Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will provide you a complimentary attic insulation analysis and review your options with you.
