While you probably know that your home has insulation somewhere, you likely don’t know where it is or what kind of shape it’s in. But learning a little bit more about the insulation situation in your home now can save you a lot of money and trouble down the line.
Insulation will make the inside of your home more comfortable year–round because it helps keep the temperature controlled air coming from your home heating and cooling system inside where it belongs. However, it’s not only important that you insulate the living spaces in your home. Even if you don’t spend much time up there, your attic is one of the more vital spaces to insulate adequately.

The Importance of Attic Insulation
Even though you may not spend much time in your attic, heat in your home naturally rises. That means that in the winter, all the heat your home heating system generates gradually makes its way up to the attic. If there’s proper insulation, your attic holds that heat and the rest of your home stays nice and warm.
Without proper attic insulation, however, that heat keeps going out into the cool winter air. And since the attic space won’t stay heated, more and more heat from below comes pouring in. That means that your home heating system works overtime to keep the lower parts of your home comfortable. No matter how much insulation you have in the lower floors of your home, you simply cannot stop the loss of heat without proper attic insulation.
The situation is somewhat reversed in the summer, but the effects are just as dramatic. Without a proper insulation barrier to keep the heat out, your attic will get quite warm. This will gradually increase the temperature in the lower parts of your home as well, making it harder for your air conditioning system to keep the living spaces of your home cool.
Saving Energy with Attic Insulation
Of course, if you have a state of the art home comfort system in place, you may not notice this effect directly. Your home comfort system will simply work harder to maintain the desired temperature downstairs, and you’ll be comfortable all year long. But the price you pay for that comfort will be much too high.
The harder your home heating and cooling system has to work, the higher your monthly bills will be. And all of that extra wear and tear will take a serious toll over time, probably leading you to replace your entire home comfort system earlier than you would have otherwise. With proper attic insulation, however, all of these situations can be avoided and you can enjoy the same level of comfort all year–round for a fraction of the cost you would be paying without it.
