The attic of your home isn’t something that you think about often. Just because it’s not a room often visited does not mean that it isn’t worth taking care of. The attic has several important jobs. One very important aspect of this space should be attic insulation. Attic insulation will provide many benefits, including:
- Prevents damage – Attic insulation helps to prevent damage to your home. It helps to prevent water vapor, heat buildup, mold, and condensation. By preventing these harmful scenarios from occurring you are helping to prevent issues with wall erosion, swelling and cracking shingles, and softening deck wood.
- Increased air quality – If you want your family breathing in the cleanest air possible then we highly recommend adding new attic insulation. Attic insulation will help to keep air contaminants from entering your home through cracks, holes, and crevices.
- Decreased energy costs – Attic insulation will help to keep your home cooler in the hot Florida sun, and it will also help to keep your home warmer during the cooler months. Insulation in your attic will allow you to use your AC and/or heat less often, which saves you money each month on your energy bills.
