Your attic is one of the main areas where energy can escape your home. Properly insulating your attic is one of the most affordable and effective ways to improve your home’s overall energy efficiency. Today, DryTech Roofing LLC, one of the top roofing contractors in our area, will talk about the benefits of a well-insulated roof:
Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency
Proper attic insulation can help save you money. The insulation will prevent heat from escaping your home in winter, and it will prevent solar heat from affecting the rest of your home in summer. This makes it easier for your HVAC to maintain your desired indoor temperature and reducing your home’s energy consumption. When choosing your insulation, pay attention to the R-Value. This value measures the insulation’s ability to resist heat flow. The higher the R-Value, the better the insulation will perform.
Prevent Ice Dams
A properly insulated attic will also prevent ice dam formation and other problems. Ice dams form when warmth from your attic melts snow at the top of your roof. This melted snow then flows towards the roof edge, where the cold temperatures cause the snow to freeze into an ice dam. If left unattended, an ice dam can cause roof leaks. Insulating your roof can stop ice dam formation by preventing heat from your attic from causing ice dams to melt. Fortunately, as one of the premier roofing contractors in our area, DryTech Roofing LLC can provide attic insulation along with our roofing services.
Help the Environment
Improving your home’s overall energy efficiency can also help the environment indirectly. A more energy-efficient home consumes less energy from the power grid. This causes the power plants to consume less resources, as well. When you save energy, you save money and you help reduce pollution.
