Proper attic insulation keeps your Bay Area home energy efficient while driving down energy costs. The beauty of an insulated home is that the indoor climate stabilizes – warm in the winter and cool in the summer. How? Simply put, insulation keeps heat from escaping the home during colder months and prevents heat from entering the home during the warmer months. Therefore, you don’t have to turn up the heater or crank up the air conditioning. In turn, this saves you money on your gas and electric bill, which can skyrocket during peak times!
Various types of insulation are available in the market. The best choice for your attic will depend upon several factors, such as: thickness and type of material, the age of the house, and if any current insulation requires removal. Additionally, improper installment can be troublesome, leading to increased energy costs and an uncomfortable existence in your home. The best way to avoid mishaps and upgrade the level of enjoyment in your home is to work with a professional attic insulation installer.
In addition to the benefits achieved with attic insulation, proper wall insulation will help reduce room-to-room noise*. Consider as well that air movement from windows and doors – removing warm air from the home and allowing cold air to come inside – will lessen when the walls are insulated. Because insulating a wall is a difficult project, it’s best left to a professional to undertake.
