One of the most often overlooked elements of your Richmond home’s insulation is your attic. An under-insulated attic proves an easy escape route for the conditioned air in your home – air that’s been heated (or cooled) with your hard-earned energy dollars!
Hot air rises up to the home’s attic, and if the attic is poorly insulated, that same air can find its way outside – bringing wasted energy along for the ride.
Here are a few ways to fix your attic’s insulation and ensure your money isn’t going to waste!
- Air-seal your attic before you begin insulating it.
- Make sure blown-in insulation is evenly distributed with no low spots.
- Insulate and weather-strip the door to your attic.
- Insulate other important areas, such as floors over unheated spaces.
A well-insulated attic can save you hundreds of dollars on your annual energy bill! Save the money you work hard for – don’t let your conditioned air escape! Contact Your Home Team at Woodfin today to learn more about the measures you can take to improve your home’s insulation this winter.
