Why is Installation Important?

SAVING ENERGY

Your roof accounts for 25% of your homes heating or cooling losses. Adding/keeping up with your installation can really benefit your home. These are a couple big benefits to having your attic insulated.

  1. You could save up to 80% in heating and cooling costs. Your heating and cooling systems will not have to work extra to keep your house at a comfortable temperature. You also will not need extra space heaters or fans to heat up or cool down a room. 50% of the heating and cooling energy your house uses would all be a waste if it wasn’t for installation.
  2. It will reduce condensation in your home.
  3. Installation protects your ceiling by delaying the water from getting into your house. It will collect the water and a catch the water. Now, after a while it will leak through to your ceiling but it could delay further damage for a little while.
  4. Prevent mold.
  5. Keeps your home at a consistent temperature. Your heating and cooling systems won’t be over working themselves, which means they will turn on less, which means your energy bill might be less.

Did we say it saves energy TWICE? It must be important..
