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 warming your home; but did you know that attic insulation also helps make sure your home stays cool? The attic is where the majority of cool air loss takes place during the summer and installing insulation, or upgrading to a more efficient attic insulation, can help keep the cool air in your home instead of it getting away through the attic. How can attic insulation save you money on energy costs? Attic insulation can also help reduce energy use in your home, saving you money on your energy bills. Cost savings varies based on several factors, including the resident’s habits, if you have a smart thermostat, the type of air conditioning system in the home, etc. Usually, it’s estimated you could save up to 20% on energy bills when you add the advised amount of attic insulation. If you have insulation currently, you may need to verify the age and see if it is up to EPA guidelines for energy efficiency. Also, if it has compressed, it could not be effective anymore.
