There are a lot of expenses involved in owning a home. Most of us are eager to find ways to lower the costs of these skyrocketing prices. One greatest money-saving change you can make to your home is proper insulation.

The majority of your heating and cooling escapes through poor insulation in the ceiling and attic. Simply upgrading the insulation in these areas will allow you to live in added comfort as well as reduce your energy bills by up to 30%. It is not always necessary to remove existing insulation when adding new. The insulation professionals at Empire Exteriors will inspect your space and advise the best insulation solution for you.

It’s a well-known fact that heat rises. And given roofs form the highest part of the building envelope, they inevitably become a potential major source of heat loss. Regardless of building type, whether residential or commercial, effective insulation of the roof is crucial to reduce energy consumption.

In the winter, heated interior air rises naturally and can penetrate into the attic through numerous air leaks or simple convection. Poor attic insulation makes the rooms directly beneath the attic cooler through conductive heat loss. This causes an increase in how much your heater needs to run to maintain adequate room temperature. An un-insulated attic allows a large amount of heat from your home to be lost into the attic, unnecessarily increasing your hydro bills.

Choice in attic insulation can make a big difference for energy saving in your home. To increase home comfort and save energy year-round, start by insulating the attic, keeping the heat in during the winter and out in the summer. This is one of the most cost-effective areas to add insulation. Often times, people don’t think about attic insulation. However, improper attic insulation can have a huge effect on your heating (and cooling) costs.
