Because Eastern Maryland lies on the Atlantic Coastal Plain, we residents will have to endure the hot and humid summers of a humid subtropical climate. It’s because of this that we usually have to overwork our air conditioners most summer days, as well as some days during fall and spring. Furthermore, even if we usually have short and mild winters, we can still experience subzero temperatures from time to time, which can only mean that we usually have to crank up our thermostat just to compensate for the chilly winter nights.
There’s just no other way around our mostly hot climate conditions but to use and overload our air conditioners just to keep ourselves and our family comfortable in our homes. And this could only lead to one thing—yes, you got it right—cooling and heating costs soaring throughout the year.
Did you know that cooling and heating costs pretty much account for up to 50% to 70% of a household’s energy use? And if you’re just depending on your roofing’s insulation properties alone, then there’s really not much you can expect but high energy bills all the time. This is because your roofing is not enough to provide ample insulation to significantly affect energy loss.
One of the most effective ways to up the ante of your home insulation is to invest in fiberglass attic insulation. This type of attic insulation has become one of the most popular types of insulation used today, as it can dramatically decrease energy costs. This is because of its high R-value—the measure of the insulation’s capability to resist heat flow; the higher the R-value, the better the insulation. And combined with an insulated roofing system, fiberglass attic insulation will surely keep your home comfortable during the hottest summer days and the coldest winter nights without having to overwork your air conditioners and heaters.
