If you’ve noticed drafts, cold spots or warm spots in your Dripping Springs, Texas, home, your attic insulation could be the culprit. Many older homes don’t contain attic insulation. To increase your energy savings, improve temperature regulation and reduce your carbon footprint, consider installing new insulation in your attic.
Improved Energy Savings
According to Energy Star, homeowners can save 15 percent on energy costs by insulating their attics. With insulation, your attic doesn’t let warm or cool air seep out. This helps stabilize the temperature. In addition, your furnace, air conditioner or heat pump won’t have to work as hard to produce the results you desire.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
If lowering your impact on the environment is at the top of your priority list, attic insulation can accomplish both. Because it keeps treated air in your home, attic insulation reduces the amount of time you need to run the air. It also prevents the HVAC system from cycling frequently, which is one of the leading causes of energy loss in homes.
Better Temperature Regulation
One of the biggest problems you’ll face in a home without attic insulation is poor temperature regulation. When treated air escapes through the attic, it can cause hot and cool zones in your house, especially if you don’t have a zoning system in your home. By keeping the air in the occupied area of your home, you’ll experience enhanced comfort all year long.
Increased Home Value
Homeowners usually use attics for storage. With proper insulation, you can transform yours into an extra room. Whether you use it as a guest or game room, this new addition increases your home’s value while providing more versatility.
