Unique Home Solutions points out the importance of having a properly insulated attic and how it can make your home more efficient to keep your heating costs down this winter.
There are many reasons to have proper insulation, the main one is of course for energy efficiency and keeping heating costs down. Another is it keeps heat from escaping up and melting snow that builds up, this creates dangerous ice cycles around the home.
It is important to take proper measurements and take into account the R-Value to determine the correct amount of insulation.
The attic space must “breathe”. The home fills up with warm moist air that rises into the attic. Without proper ventilation from the soffits and into the attic the air can become stagnant and cause mold and moisture issues.
You want the attic to stay somewhat cool to avoid snow from melting. When snow melts it can cause very dangerous situations with icicles and ice damming around the valleys in the roof. Ice damming leads to water coming back into the house.
The best option is to bring in a certified professional to check your attic to determine what you may need and make sure the job is done right.
