How Can Attic Insulation Keep Your Home Cool During the Summer Published on June 14, 2017 How can attic insulation keep your home cool during the summer? When you hear the phrase attic insulation, you may think about warming your home; but did you know that attic insulation also helps make sure your home stays cool? The attic is where your home loses the majority of your cool air during the summer and installing insulation, or upgrading to a more efficient attic insulation, can help trap the cool air in your home instead of it escaping through the attic. How can attic insulation save you money on energy costs? Attic insulation can also help decrease energy use within your home, which can help save money on your utility bills. Cost savings varies based on several factors, including the family’s habits, if you use a smart thermostat, the type of HVAC system in the home, etc. Usually, it’s estimated families could save up to 20% on energy bills when you add the recommended amount of attic insulation. If you have insulation currently, you may need to check on the age and see if it meets EPA guidelines for energy efficiency. Also, if it has compressed, it could have lost its effectiveness.
