So, you’re thinking about adding insulation to the attic in your Columbus, GA, home but haven’t pulled the trigger yet. What are you waiting for? Few improvements make a bigger difference for your home than having adequate insulation. Consider the following benefits of investing in attic insulation:
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that up to 50 percent of home energy expenses are associated with heating and cooling. A home with the right amount of attic insulation saves money by keeping the cool air in and the warm air out during the summer. The warm air stays in and the cool air goes out during the winter. Your HVAC system will kick on less often and less energy will be consumed.
Extended Home Life
Homes with inadequately insulated attics are also more likely to develop structural problems over time. In uninsulated attics, the risk of condensation is increased, which can cause the wood frame of the attic and the walls of the home to wear out more quickly. This risk is reduced when you have the right amount of home insulation. The structure of your home will likely need less frequent repairs and replacements.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Having the proper insulation in your home also means better indoor air quality. Home insulation provides another barrier to prevent dust, mold, and other pollutants from entering your living spaces. As a result, your indoor air is fresher and less likely to aggravate allergies.
