Essential Energy Efficiency Starts with Attic Insulation

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 10, 2011

When it comes to a home improvement that reduces energy use and improves the interior comfort of the home environment, many first look to energy efficient air conditioning and heating units as the answer. Energy Star HVAC units are indeed energy savers. They are also very costly investments and even those have limited effectiveness if other areas of the home where heat is gained or lost are not also addressed. The place to begin is with the attic.

Attic Insulation Attic insulation and ventilation is a critical part of energy conservation in a home. Significant heat enters the home through the attic in summer and heat is lost from the attic in the winter. Attic insulation systems work less hard with less energy needed. Making sure you have proper attic insulation is key not only in the winter time but also in the summer time to prevent heat loss and cold air exiting through cracks.

Adequate attic ventilation is equally important to prevent heat and moisture from being trapped in the attic. Keeping the air circulating properly in the attic also aids in preventing unwanted heat gain and loss and prevents damaging moisture from rotting wood and promoting the growth of mildew and molds.
