Why Do I Need Attic Insulation?

Without attic insulation, up to a quarter of the heat in your home can be lost through the roof. Costing you more in energy bills to keep your home warm. Insulating your attic is a simple and effective way to reduce your heating costs and keep warmth in your home. 

The more insulated your home is, the more efficient your home is at heating and staying warm. Also, with the reduction of energy needed to heat your home. You are reducing your home’s CO2 emissions and also improving your home’s energy performance. 

What is attic insulation?

Insulation is a material that is placed in your attic to slow down the transfer of heat between your home and the outside. It helps to keep your house warm in the winter and cooler in the summer too. 

The recommendation for attic insulation varies by location, see more. Having insulation that is 11″ thick, for example, can save you up to 25% on your energy and heating bills!

Investing in insulation is efficient as it can last for 40 years, so it also can pay for itself in the money you save on energy bills many times over.
