Upgrade your attic insulation for instant energy savings.
Having proper attic insulation installed correctly will reduce your energy costs by improving your home's air conditioning and heating efficiency. A well-insulated home wastes very little energy and maintains a more comfortable indoor living space. Upgrading your attic insulation is a quick and affordable way to upgrade your home's energy efficiency.
Here are some ways that attic insulation is leading the way in energy savings.
HVAC Equipment Will Run Less Often
By properly sealing and insulating your attic, you will help your home hold heated and cooled air for longer periods of time. Reducing the amount of heated and cooled air that seeps out of the home means that your furnace and air conditioner will run less often to maintain the temperature you set on your thermostat. That means reduced heating and cooling bills for you, year-round. In fact, some experts say you can save 10-50% on your energy bills just by improving your attic insulation.
Attic Insulation is Relatively Inexpensive
Getting the appropriate attic insulation installed correctly can be done within a day, and the cost is relatively low. It's a quick and affordable way to boost your home's value, as well as the energy efficiency of your existing heating and cooling equipment. Plus, many environmentally-friendly insulation materials are available on the market; be sure to ask your HVAC specialist what material will work best for your home and the climate you live in.
Tax Credits are Available for Attic Insulation
Did you know that you can get a tax credit for up to $500 to defray the cost of upgrading your attic insulation and many other HVAC improvements? Just save your receipts and complete IRS Form 5695 at tax time, and Uncle Sam will help pay for your home improvement project. Your savings keep adding up!
Comfort Services generally recommends the Owens-Corning AttiCat insulation system. It's a fiberglass insulation material that is safe and non-irritating. AtticCat insulation will not settle in your attic, which allows it to retain its energy-saving R-value over time. AtticCat is also an environmentally responsible insulation choice because it is made of renewable resources, like sand and recycled glass.
