Insulate Your Attic to Save on Energy and Lower Your Utility Bills
When you want to save money on your energy bills, the most obvious place to start is insulating your attic. This process can reduce outside noise, lower your utility bills by up to 20%, and keep you cool in the summer. It’s not as expensive as you might think, especially if your home is already fairly well insulated.
What is the best insulation for a roof in Florida?
Many homeowners choose to install fiberglass Joe Blow’s Insulation, which is available for new houses or existing homes with little or no insulation. It is effective at reducing heat transfer and can be blown into tight spaces for more even coverage. It is also environmentally friendly and contains no asbestos, making it safe for your family. Another popular option is cellulose insulation, which is made from recycled newspaper and treated with fire retardants. It is blown into the attic for complete coverage and is highly effective in reducing outside noise, lowering utilities, and preventing heat loss. It is also highly fire-rated and does not absorb moisture.
If you’re on a budget, closed-cell spray foam can be an affordable option for insulating your attic. This form of insulation creates a thermal envelope to help regulate internal temperatures and keeps heat out in the winter and cold air out in the summer. It also helps prevent moisture, mildew, and mold from growing in the attic.
If your house isn’t insulated, a contractor can add insulation to the walls and the attic. Although this isn’t as effective as insulating the attic, it’s still an option for saving on energy costs.
