Keeping Your Attic Properly Insulated
There is a lot that goes into keeping your home at a comfortable temperature. Depending on where you live, that can mean managing drastically different climates depending on the time of year.
For that reason, it is important to ensure that your attic is properly insulated. If your home doesn’t have an insulated attic or is in need of a new solution, there are more than a few reasons why making the change is beneficial for you.
Save Money on Energy Costs
Perhaps the most important aspect of attic insulation (known as ฉนวนกันความร้อนใต้หลังคา in Thai) is the potential for energy savings. Now more than ever, there is a priority on cutting down on energy usage and improving savings for both residences and commercial buildings.
By having the proper insulation, it means major savings on both heating and cooling. The reason being that heat travels; in the summer it comes in, in the winter it moves out. With proper insulation in your attic, it means ensuring that heat stays or goes as needed depending on the season.
This is because of air leakage control. Given that an estimated 40% of heating costs comes from air leaking in through floors, walls, and ceilings, that can mean producing serious savings with the right insulation.
Improve Air Quality
One of the most overlooked aspects of insulation is the air quality that it provides in the home. When you have quality insulation, it means keeping unwanted things out of your home in a more effective manner.
Pollutants such as radon, dirt, smoke, and mould can all enter the home from outside. With the proper insulation, it means keeping those pollutants on the outside where they belong. Depending on your sensitivity and the amount of pollutants getting into the home, that can mean fatigue, respiratory problems, headaches, and more.
Improving Home Value
Another major benefit to having the proper insulation in your attic is that it can actually improve the value of your home. Depending on what kind of insulation option you choose, having a higher R-value can add value to the home.
It is one of those things that may not be visible to buyers, but it can be a strong selling point because of the aforementioned improvement to air quality, improved energy savings, and all of the other perks that come with new insulation. It is worth the investment to boost your home’s value.
