There are numerous locations in your home that have the potential to house cooling and heating systems. Besides the usual electrical sockets - which cater to your heaters, electric fans, and other plug-in appliances, spaces that most homeowners assume to be "useless" actually have the potential to help you save money. Your attic is just one of those rooms.
When you think of an attic, you usually envision a small space that is dark, musty, and an area used mainly for storage. Some homeowners have thought about converting this space into an extra bedroom or hobby room; but if you want this space to work for you, having it insulated is the right decision.
Primarily, insulation works by regulating the temperature of the air going in and out of your home. This simple installment is especially important in homes that experience extreme cold and heat every year. Why? At the peak of summer, outside temperatures can reach up to, and even into the 100s. So when outdoor air finds its way to the empty pockets of your home, it can raise the indoor temperature significantly. During the cooler seasons, however, the warm air produced in your home can escape, lowering the temperature.
Without insulation, your heating and cooling systems must work extra hard to keep your home at your desired temperature, increasing your energy consumption, and your energy bills. However, when your property is outfitted with insulation, outside air stays outside, and inside air stays inside, thus, retaining a temperate environment in your home all year round and keeping your energy costs down.
