Attic insulation can greatly increase the efficiency and comfort level of your home.
Did you know that one of the most important things you can do to make your home more energy efficient is actually hiding in a part of your home you rarely see? In your attic, a lot of your home’s energy is either preserved or wasted depending upon how much attic insulation you have. Here at Energy Works, we want to make sure that your Piedmont Triad, North Carolina home is as energy efficient as you would like it to be, starting from the top by looking at your attic insulation and working your way down to the crawlspace!
There are several ways to determine if your attic insulation is sufficient without actually stepping foot into a crowded attic space. In fact, staying at eye level with the floor of your attic might work better to determine the amount of attic insulation! When you look at the expanse of your attic floor, look for wet spots on your insulation that could signify leaks in your roof. You should be able to see nothing but insulation on the floor of the attic space — if you can see the structure of your floor, you could use additional or replacement attic insulation.
As much as a quarter of your home’s energy usage can escape through a poorly insulated attic. This means that you could be paying your hard-earned money to essentially evaporate into the atmosphere! When you have Energy Works come and look at your home’s attic insulation as well as other energy sources, we can help ensure that the energy you pay for is carefully used by a well-insulated home.
