Chantilly, VA, October 21, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The Centreville insulation contractors at Beyond Exteriors recently published a blog post explaining why homeowners should consider replacing their attic insulation this fall. Proper attic insulation replacement can help homes remain comfortable during the colder winter months.
Heat rises, and attic insulation helps trap that heat before it leaves your home. This helps keep the top floor of your house as warm as the bottom during the winter months and cool over the summer. Not only does this keep your home at an agreeable temperature year-round, it also helps protect the items store inside your attic from overheating. Poor insulation could result in damage and make your home an uncomfortable place in which to live, and it is important to fix old, ineffective insulation before you truly need it.
Replacing your insulation before winter sets in has several benefits. Most importantly, proper insulation can help you save money on heating bills because the insulation will help keep heat inside your house without the need for extra heating units. You may also save money on HVAC repairs, as you will be using your system less frequently thanks to better insulation. Tuning up your attic insulation before the cold sets in can also help you avoid an undesirably cold winter before it's too late. Attic insulation can prevent water vapor from melting snow from seeping into your walls and damaging them and also discourages ice dams from forming when snow freezes on the roof's edge, both of which can cause damage to both your roof and the exterior walls. Good insulation can also help keep dust, mildew, dirt, and other pollutants from entering your home and making the air difficult to breathe.
