When homeowners properly insulate their attics, it reduces the load on heating and cooling systems. It also helps maintain consistent indoor temperatures, making the home more comfortable year-round. Depending on the type of insulation used, an average home can save up to 15% on energy costs.

Insulating an attic is one of the most cost-effective ENERGY STAR projects you can undertake. It can significantly reduce your energy costs and contribute to a cleaner environment. By reducing the need for natural gas, propane, oil, fuel coal and electricity to heat and cool homes, more energy can be available for creating renewable sources of power that don’t pollute the environment.

Above and Beyond: Unveiling the Benefits of Effective Attic Insulation

Adding attic insulation is simple and quick. In fact, you can do it yourself with the help of a ladder and some common tools such as a drill or screwdriver. Just make sure to wear eye protection, gloves, and breathing protection while working in the attic.

The best attic insulation is rolled fiberglass batts or loose-fill cellulose. Both have different R-values per inch. Fiberglass has the advantage of being inexpensive, while blown-in cellulose is more eco-friendly and provides better air sealing. It is made from recycled cellulose products such as shredded newspapers and cardboard or waste paper from office buildings and factories.

It’s important to identify and repair any leaks or moisture issues in the attic before insulating it. It’s also a good idea to inspect the attic access opening (either hatch, fold-back door or pull-down stairs) and insulate it to prevent warm air from entering the living space below.
