Attic Insulation can have a significant impact on your power bill. Insulating your attic can help prevent air from escaping the house and stop outside air from coming in. During Calgary’s very cold winters, we want to keep our houses in a comfortable temperature. Heat rises along with the heating bills because very few homes are designed to be airtight. A significant amount of hot air blowing into your home is going up and is seeping into your uninsulated attic.
In the summer, attics can get very hot and this hot temperature spreads throughout the house and makes the air conditioner work harder which then raises your energy bill.
Increased attic insulation can not only improve your heating and cooling costs, and help to improve the comfort level in your home, it can also increase the durability and life of the roof by preventing damage caused by condensation and ice damming, and by preventing the build up of mold.
