The attic is one of the most accessible areas to improve your home’s energy efficiency. Attics are commonly under-insulated with insufficient products or volume of attic insulation. As the products and standards have improved over the years more and more people, contractors and government policies are investing in improving the R-value of our attic spaces.
If you are building a new home consider a higher R-value to lessen the energy burden on your furnace or air conditioning. In an existing home an upgrade to your attic insulation can be a cost effective alternative to replacing doors, windows or HVAC appliances.
