Did you know homeowners are wasting money each year by paying for heat which escapes quickly due to inadequate attic insulation. It’s true. To save on energy bills, the best place to start is with your attic. Attics are a significant source of heat loss in under-insulated homes. Even more, according to statistics most homes lose up to 35 percent of their energy through the attic!
Look at the Existing Attic Insulation
The first step is to look at the existing insulation in your attic. If the wood beams (or joists) of your attic floor are still visible, you probably don’t have enough of insulation. Use a tape measure or yardstick to check the depth of it on your attic floor. The Department of Energy recommends a minimum depth of 15.5 inches of fiberglass batts or about 18 inches of blown insulation for optimum energy-efficiency.
