3 Reasons to get New Attic Insulation

With the temperature dropping as we get deeper into December, our homes need to withstand the cold. While you can heat up your house to tackle the cold, heating will do no good without proper attic insulation. Including this reason and more, we’ve put together 3 reasons to invest in attic insulation this winter.

Return on Investment

While there will be the initial price of the installation of the attic insulation, the return on the investment will make the purchase well worth the cost. In the long run, you will save money on the costs that accumulate from constantly heating or cooling your home. This is due to insulation’s ability to keep your house at the correct temperature with less air conditioning required. Also, the insulation will help to maintain the integrity of your roof material, since poor temperature conditions in the attic can damage the structure over time.


Having an improperly insulated attic may be contributing to having your home at an undesirable temperature. Proper insulation promotes the circulation of air in your attic, creating the desirable temperature and improving your roofs service life. It will allow you to keep out the cold while helping to maintain the integrity of your roof material.

Environmentally Friendly

Attic insulation not only benefits your home but is also beneficial to the environment. A properly insulated attic reduces the amount of energy your home consumes, which results in lower carbon emissions. The attic is the best place to start as it is a huge contributor to losing or storing the heat that creates an undesirable temperature and the need to use more energy.
