At one time, I considered the attic nothing more than a storage space.
Having a full attic provides the perfect location for clothing my kids have grown out of, photo albums, extra furniture, suitcases and Christmas decorations, and while I noticed that the attic tended to feel seriously hot in the Summer and especially chilly in the winter, I never provided it much thought; A little over a year ago, when the Heating and A/C company was completing repair on the heater, I complained about the cost of my energy bills… The company advised more than 2 energy saving measures, including attic insulation; I had no idea if my attic was insulated or not.
He said that the attic is entirely designed as a barrier against the outdoor conditions. A officially insulated attic helps to reduce the workload of the heating system and a/c, but since moderate air tends to migrate to cooler locations, an attic that isn’t sealed slender can lead to a fantastic deal of energy waste, living in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, heating and cooling are essential nearly all year round, but my friend and I deal with temperatures in the negatives and the triple digits. The cost of running the heating system and a/c is considerable. An inspection of the attic revealed that the insulation was unsatisfactory and had been degraded by rodents and moisture. I hired the Heating and A/C company to tear out the old insulation and install new. I instantaneously noticed an improvement. The attic is no longer severely hot or chilly, and there’s been a decrease in the cost of my energy bills.
