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 keeping your home warm; but did you know that attic insulation also helps with making sure your home keeps cool? The attic is where your home loses the majority of your cool air during the summer and installing attic insulation, or upgrading to a more efficient attic insulation, can help trap the cool air in your home instead of it disappearing through the attic. How can attic insulation save you money on energy costs? Attic insulation can also help reduce energy use within your home, which can help save money on your energy bills. Cost savings varies based on several factors, including the resident’s habits, if you installed a smart thermostat, the type of air conditioning system in the home, etc. On average, it’s estimated homeowners could save up to 20% on utility bills when you add the recommended amount of attic insulation. If you have insulation, you may need to confirm the age and see if it’s to the EPA guidelines for energy efficiency. Also, if it has compressed, it could not be effective anymore.
