Blow-in Attic Insulation.
Blow-in attic insulation reduces electric bills for one main reason; The attic is the coldest part of your house in the winter and the hottest area in the summer which makes it imperative that your attic floor has adequate insulation to prevent cold or hot air from moving down into your home. Having inadequate insulation or even worse, having no insulation in your attic can be expensive.
In fact, the Department of Energy estimates that having no insulation in an attic can add 30% to a home’s energy costs, and with the average cost of heating and cooling a home over $1500 per year that adds up pretty quickly.
Different insulation products are rated with R numbers that indicate how well they resist flow of heat called thermal resistance. Products with greater R values have greater insulating capacity. These values vary depending on the material used, the density of the material, and its thickness.
There are different types of insulation that you can choose for your attic. When deciding, you need to get good advice regarding the R-value and the depth required to achieve it, as well as the safety and health issues of the different material and product types that are available.
Will home Attic Insulation help you to save energy costs?
Whether it will or not depends on the age of your home and its envelope components, the way it was constructed and has been maintained, the amount of insulation and air leakage there is in its outer envelope, as well as the number and size of windows, and many other factors.
