Natural Gas Prices are on the Rise! Plus Three More Reasons to Insulate your Attic.predicted natural gas users will see a 22% climb in their heating bills this year over the 2015-2016 heating season. If you’ve been thinking of upgrading your home’s insulation, this is the time.
When you think of upgrading your home’s insulation, the attic may be the first thing that comes to mind. Do you really know why it matters? Here are three reasons to upgrade your attic insulation and seal attic air leaks:
- Heating and cooling costs account for up to 50-70 percent of the energy used in an average home. Taking steps to improve your home’s energy efficiency keeps your energy bills low and reduces wear and tear on your HVAC system.
- Air naturally moves upward through your house. Adding insulation and sealing air leaks in your attic prevents air you’ve already paid to heat or cool from leaving your home.
- Insulating and air sealing your attic can prevent unconditioned air from coming into your home. This means your HVAC system has to work less to maintain your home’s interior temperature.
Adding insulation to your attic is one of the most cost-effective ways to save money on your energy bills each month. Wondering if your home could benefit from additional attic insulation? Contact us for a free estimate.
