Fall is almost here, the temperature has gotten much cooler in the evening. Reacquainting with the cold weather is a good reminder that houses also need insulation to keep the heat inside during the cold days and nights of winter. The attic is usually the top priority when it comes to custom insulation in Worcester, MA.
Autumn is the best time of the year to insulate your attic because the cool temperature makes it more comfortable to work, and there will be minimal air conditioned air loss while workers go in and out. There may be areas in your attic where the insulation is loose or a part of it may have been ripped off or damaged. All insulation that needs to be repaired or replaced must be dealt with before the winter season starts.
Adding blow-in insulation in your attic this fall is an inexpensive way to help save energy costs and the environment. With the insulation properly replaced, you can save on the energy used by your heating system to heat your home all winter long.
Attic insulation also has an added advantage for those who are living in climates with a lot of snow. It can help your home avoid ice dams from developing. Without proper insulation, icicles can form at the bottom edges of a roof due to heat loss through the ceiling. This happens when the heat from inside the house break out, melting the snow on the roof before the sun can melt it. This can lead to leaks inside your walls as the ice also builds up on the roof, forming into an ice dam that can cause damage to your home.
Contact Custom Insulation now, and enjoy the benefits of lowered heating bills and improved comfort in the coming winter season.
