At one time, I considered the attic nothing more than a storage space, but having a full attic provides the perfect location for clothing my youngsters have grown out of, photo albums, extra furniture, suitcases plus Christmas decorations! While I noticed that the attic tended to feel seriously hot in the summer time plus especially chilly in the winter, I never gave it much thought, however a little over a year ago, when the HVAC business was completing maintenance on the furnace, I complained about the cost of my energy bills… The business proposed many energy saving measures, including attic insulation; I had no idea if my attic was insulated or not.
He said that the attic is actually designed as a barrier against the outdoor conditions. A properly insulated attic helps to reduce the workload of the furnace plus a/c, then since moderate air tends to migrate to cooler locations, an attic that isn’t sealed slim can lead to a good deal of energy waste, living in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, heating plus cooling are essential nearly all year round… My pal and I deal with hot plus cold temperatures in the disadvantages as well as the triple digits. The cost of running the furnace plus a/c is considerable. An inspection of the attic revealed that the insulation was unsatisfactory plus had been degraded by rodents plus moisture. I hired the HVAC business to tear out the seasoned insulation plus install new. I instantly noticed an improvement. The attic is no longer severely hot or chilly, plus there’s been a decrease in the cost of my energy bills.
