How To Prevent Your Home From Leaking Warm Air
As Wintertime arrives here in Dayton, it’s important to begin taking all the proactive measures to ensure your home will remain warm & cozy for you and your family throughout the season. At Universal Heating & Cooling, we offer professional attic insulation services to help prevent the warm air from leaking out. In this post, we are going to explain some of the benefits of having attic insulation in your home.
Reduced Monthly Energy Costs
The insulating material provides a thermal blanket in your attic, which prevents heated and cooled air from leaking out. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the average household with blown in attic insulation saves up to 16% on utility bills every year from reducing the amount of air that leaks. That money adds up over time!
Increases Lifespan of Your Roof
Believe it or not, proper ventilation affects more than just the internal climate of your home. Poor ventilation can lead to overheating which can cause shingles to fall off quicker than the otherwise would on a home with adequate ventilation.
The Installation Process is Quick
One of the most appealing benefits to homeowners is how quick the installation process is. Unlike installing or replacing an HVAC system, a trained professional can get attic insulation installed in just a few hours. This is done because unlike traditional insulation, blown in attic insulation is, as the name suggests, blown in through a machine controlled by two technicians.
Improves Your Home Comfort
Last but certainly not least is your comfort level! The most important benefit of blown in attic insulation is that you and your family will notice an increased level of comfort this winter!
