Many people equate insulation with energy savings. If you feel like your home needs more attic insulation, you may wonder if this can help you save money when it comes to your heating and cooling costs.
At Polk County Insulation, we want you to know that adding more attic insulation to your home is one of the best ways to cut back on your energy bills. There are two main ways attic insulation can help with your energy bills:
- During the colder months of the year, attic insulation acts as a barrier that slows down the transfer of heat. In the winter, if you turn on your heat, the insulation will help to retain this heat. Without proper attic insulation, the warm air can escape through your attic, leading to increased heating costs.
- During the summer months of the year, attic insulation can help keep your home cooler by preventing the transfer of heat from the outside. This is particularly important in the attic because it can keep your air conditioner from working overtime to cool a space that’s constantly being heated by the sun.
Overall, proper attic insulation puts less stress on your home’s HVAC system, so it doesn’t have to work as hard to keep your home at the temperature you want. If you want to know more about how attic insulation can help you save money heating and cooling your home, we’d be happy to provide additional information.
