Your attic is more than just an extra space in your home that can serve as storage, guest room, or game room. In fact, it plays a crucial role in protecting your home against heat, humidity and cold. But in order for your attic to properly fill this role, it must first have good insulation.
Allstar Construction, one of the area’s top roofing and siding contractors, discusses three key benefits of a well-insulated attic.
Good Indoor Air Quality
Poor insulation can cause air leaks, which enable outdoor pollutants like dust, dirt and mold to enter your home. Once these contaminants accumulate inside your home, they can seriously compromise the air that you breathe inside your home. This is particularly a concern for those with allergies, asthma, or other respiratory conditions. Make sure that your family can breathe easier and enjoy cleaner air by replacing old, deteriorating insulation.
Improved Indoor Comfort
Even if your home is equipped with modern heating and cooling systems, you may still experience severe temperature fluctuations if your attic is under-insulated. Inadequate insulation can cause your home to become hot or cold more quickly as outside temperature changes. It also defeats the purpose of your HVAC system, reducing its capacity for energy efficiency. Consult with roof repair companies and find out how you can improve your attic insulation and indoor comfort.
Attic insulation can also prevent gradual damage to your home, particularly those that are caused by heat and moisture. It prevents moisture from seeping in and eroding your walls, and it helps slow down heat buildup in your attic, which can affect the shingles on your roof and cause them to swell and crack.
