Attic Insulation Prevents Icicle Formation

30 January 2021

Custom Insulation Home Attic Insulation in Boston, MA

Loads of snow can result in icicle formation hanging from homes. While they look beautiful, icicles can be a significant concern to homeowners. For one, they are considered as a danger that hangs over our heads. When these frozen sculptures will begin to crash down to the ground, they may cause head injury to anyone who stands below it.

If you notice icicles forming on your roof, then you need better home attic insulation. Icicles also mean that an ice dam may be forming on the roof. Ice forms when the snow melts higher up on the roof then refreezes as it reaches the eave.

The snow on your roof melts as a result of heat loss. You are losing heat through your attic because of poor insulation. You need to stop the heat from your living area from entering your attic. Adding more attic insulation over the ceiling will help greatly. Additionally, you will dramatically reduce your home heating bills.

Proper attic insulation delivers comfort and cost saving benefits. Clearly it reduces your heating and cooling bills, very simply, because your HVAC system works less

Home attic insulation has a dual useful role whether in cold or hot temperatures. It is because during the two seasons, attic insulation prevents heat flow transfer just when the heat is trying to escape from the home or make its way inside or come in from the outdoors. Either way, this insulation prevents heat flow by trapping air in small pockets within its fibers. And the air will insulate the home or make its way inside or make way from the outdoors. Because the heat from the outside wants to come into the home and easily enters through different points in the home including windows and doors and other areas of the roof, it is then through the attic insulation that blocks the warm air from coming inside.

Generally keeping your home warm this cold season with energy efficient attic insulation is a big help as it provides comfort and warmth inside your home. More so, it prevents gradual damage to your home due to heat and moisture. With attic insulation, it is an essential component of energy savings and indoor comfort during the cold months and during summer.
