For many people, their home’s attic is out of sight, out of mind. As long as there aren’t any holes in the roof or water leaking from the ceiling, they may never venture up there—but the insulation in your attic may be more important than you realize.
The whole point of living in a home is to guard you and your loved ones from the elements. This means extreme temperatures in addition to precipitation and wind. You should think about your attic’s insulation and have it inspected. In doing so, you may find that you need attic insulation replacement.
Here are some of the benefits of having your attic insulation replaced.
Better temperature control
No matter where you live, you’ll want to protect your home from extreme temperature swings. Even warm locales like California can see average high temperatures dip close to 40°F in the winter months.
Having high-quality insulation in your attic can allow you to better control the temperature within your home. Enlisting the help of an attic insulation contractor can let you know whether you need more attic insulation or you need to have it replaced altogether.
Lower utility bills
One of the first signs of poor attic insulation is an inexplicable increase in your home’s utility bills. You may see that you’re using more energy and may not know exactly why. If you have inadequate attic insulation, your home’s central heating system will be forced to work harder and expend more energy to successfully regulate the temperature in your home.
With proper attic insulation, your home’s temperature will be closer to your ideal feel and your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard to bring the temperature up or down to compensate for extreme hot or cold temperatures outside.
Superior air quality
One little-known perk of having fresh attic insulation installed is that it can improve the quality of your home’s indoor air. Insufficient attic insulation can not only let cold or warm air in, but it can also let the airborne toxins and pollutants present in outdoor air into your attic as well.
Any dirt, dust, debris, mold or mildew that’s outside could, unfortunately, find its way into your home through your attic. Over time, your old attic insulation may become contaminated with these toxins; therefore, it could be greatly beneficial to your home’s indoor air quality to have your old attic insulation replaced.
Increase the value of your home
For many homeowners, their home is their main investment. They have usually built up a lot of equity in their home; therefore, it would behoove them to do everything possible to increase the value of their home, regardless of whether they plan on moving any time soon.
Having new attic insulation replacement performed on your home can not only benefit you and your family immediately, but it could also be a worthy long-term investment to boost the value of your home, as it would be attractive to potential buyers.
