Why Attic Insulation Is Important Published on January 30, 2017 Attic insulation is an easy way to stay cozy, help the earth, and save you money. How you ask? Hammond Plumbing & Heating is here to fill you in. Stay Warm The proper amount of attic insulation helps keep warmed air trapped inside your home during the cooler months. Warm air rises, and in many cases, escapes through the attic. Improving or adding insulation to your attic can help avoid heat from escaping and keep your home warmer. Help the Earth If warm air is being released through your attic, your furnace has to work more to heat your home, utilizing more energy. Putting in more or higher quality attic insulation will help keep the warm air in the home and stop your heating system from having to operate as long or as often. Save Money When your heating system doesn’t have to work as hard, it not only helps save the earth by saving energy, it also helps save you cash. When your heating equipment is running more energy efficient and not having to run as long or as often, it will help reduce your utility bills. Are you interested in upgrading your attic insulation?
