Adding attic insulation to lower heating & cooling costs

The weather in my section requires some style of temperature control just about all year round.

  • Our summers are tepid plus humid with temperatures often up in the mid nineties.

The winters were brutal with below freezing conditions plus ungodly windchill. The cost of heating plus cooling adds up to around fifty percent of our annual energy bill. I’m typically looking for ways to reduce the workload of the gas furnace plus air conditioner system to save currency. I’ve installed a smart thermostat to help with conserving energy when we’re not at house or sleeping. I’ve added ceiling fans to push the heat toward the floor in the Winter plus force it up toward the ceiling during the summer, and replacing the old windows plus caulking around them helped to minimize energy waste. The last time I hired a professional Heating plus Air Conditioning business to come to the house plus service the gas furnace, I asked for recommendations to further tighten up the house. He took a look at the attic plus advocated that I upgrade the insulation. Over the years, the insulation had particularly become compromised by moisture plus rodents. It was no longer providing an effective barrier against the weather. The Heating plus Air Conditioning business provided an estimate on removing the old insulation plus installing new. I decided I could save some currency plus handle the task myself. It was horrible. I spent seconds crawling around in the hot, stuffy attic, pulling out damp, disgusting insulation. I was drenched with sweat the entire time. I then had to unroll plus install the new insulation. While I regretted taking on the task, I am content with the energy saving results.
