It’s human nature to not take much notice of things that aren’t right in front of our face. It’s why we forget to water plants, why we neglect getting our junk drawers cleaned out, and why we often just store things in our attics and then forget about them. While the attic is a place that is often there mostly for storage, taking action by adding attic insulation to your space can actually make your livable living space far more comfortable. In fact, there are many reasons to go ahead and add some attic insulation to your property today, but here are the top three:
- Saves money. Just like your mom always told you to put a hat on when it’s cold outside or to wear a baseball hat to protect yourself from the sun, attic insulation acts as a hat for your home. When you have attic insulation in the proper amounts and R-values, then your home is able to keep a more even temperature, which saves you big bucks on your utilities!
- Much kinder to your HVAC system. With the right attic insulation, your HVAC system doesn’t need to be constantly swinging from one extreme to the other in order to keep up a good and even temperature in the living space. With more efficient use, you save money like mentioned above, but you also are able to keep your HVAC running longer.
- Fewer outdoor irritants. Attic insulation can keep things like pollen, dirt or other outdoor irritants from finding their way into your home through the roofline, making your indoor air cleaner.
