Uninsulated attics raise energy bill

A big enemy of energy efficiency is right under your roof.

If your attic has little or no insulation it is pumping up your energy bill. Hot sun beating on your roof makes the air conditioner work harder in the summer. And heat from your living area drifts upward into the attic in winter. Either way, these energy sucks hurt efficiency and finances.

Adding insulation, either by yourself or via a contractor, will keep more of the heated and cooled air in your living space. Insulation will make your home more comfortable and pay off in the long run..

How much insulation does your property need? See this link for government recommendations:


While installing insulation, look for holes that are letting indoor air escape upward. They are often found around poor seals for lights and HVAC ductwork.
