If you’ve spent your summer praying that your air conditioning unit could make it one more day, this article is for you. If your unit is running nonstop and you feel like your home never completely cools to the right temperature, it’s time for some action. You know you need to do something, but you’ve put it off because you didn’t want to hear that you need a unit. Before you investigate that option, there is one option you can consider that will help your system not fight so hard to function. This option will help your system use less energy and save you money. What is it you ask? Attic insulation.
Attic insulation could be the answer. For most homes, the attic is the where you lose the majority of your cool air. Adding new or additional insulation in your attic can help store the heat in your home and keep it from being released through the roof.
Attic insulation can help decrease energy use in your home lowering your energy costs. The average home saves up to 20% on utility bills just by adding attic insulation.
One reason to consider attic insulation is if your home is older. Older insulation most likely isn’t up to the EPA guidelines for energy efficiency. Over time the insulation can compress and lose its effectiveness.
