Your home’s attic, it’s the last place you want to be on a hot Texas summer day; but it’s one of the first places you should look to help curb your home’s heating and cooling cost. Improper attic sealing can lead to poor ventilation and higher cooling and heating bills.
Insulation is a key factor in maintaining the correct temperature in your home. If your insulation is not up to grade, you’re paying more than you should to keep your home comfortable. Adding insulation is one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to maintain your home’s comfort level, saving you as much as 20 percent on your monthly light bills.
Insulation is rated according to the R value, this indicates the insulation’s resistance to heat flow when it is properly installed, the higher the R value, the more resistant it is to heat. Here in the Dallas metro area the U.S. Department of Energy and the International Energy Conservation Code recommend a home insulation level of R30 to R60 in the attic.
An inadequately insulated attic can make your air conditioner work harder keeping you less comfortable than you should be. Proper attic ventilation, along with proper insulation, will help keep your attic cooler and your living areas more comfortable keeping your energy cost from spiking.
