Could You Be Saving Money On Your Energy Bill?
Having the proper amount of insulation in your attic is essential for indoor comfort. A well-insulated attic helps to release heat in the summer to keep you cool and cold air in the winter to keep you warm. This can only happen if the air seal between the ventilated space of your attic and the conditioned space of the rest of your home is tight enough to prevent air loss. Below are some of the problems you might experience if this seal is not tight or you have a hole somewhere in the attic. In either situation, arranging for attic insulation removal and then having new insulation applied is your best solution.
Problems With Heating in the Winter
You may remember learning in grade school science class that hot air rises. As it does so, it transforms from hot to cold. That means you could have cold air in your home instead of warm air when you need it due to lack of proper insulation in your attic. Another problem with warm air is that it naturally attracts moisture. Over time, this will cause condensation and damage to the roof of your home. Bay Area attic cleaners will then need to inspect for damage.
One problem that homeowners run into when they install their own insulation in the attic is that they don’t account for hidden heat transfer conduits and airways. The most likely locations of these problem areas include:
- Air ducts
- Dropped ceilings
- Exhaust fans
- Plumbing and electrical chases
- Recessed lights
- Walls butting up against cathedral ceilings
