Your attic is not simply a place to store seasonal items, heating and cooling equipment, or other materials. It’s actually designed to provide your home protection against extreme heat, cold and moisture. However, to do this properly without big problems, your attic should be properly ventilated and insulated. If done correctly, your attic could actually save you money every month by conserving warmth in the winter to heat your home, and block out extreme heat in the summer so your cooling system(s) don’t have to work as hard. Efficient attic insulation relies on the following three areas:
Attic Insulation: If you want warm or cold air generated by your heating and cooling system to stay in your home, instead of dispersing into your attic, proper attic insulation is a necessity.
Attic Ventilation: Proper attic ventilation using such things as attic fans could prevent expensive damage to your home.
Radiant Barrier: A spray that can prevent 80% of the sun’s radiant heat from entering your attic in the summer, as well as up to 80% of the warmth generated by your heating system from escaping your home through the attic in the winter.

Since up to 50% of your home’s energy costs may go towards the heating and HVAC system in your home, we may recommend high-efficiency equipment, programmable thermostats, or zoning control. Not only are many of these systems applicable for tax credits and utility rebates, but they will also save you every month on energy bills. A high efficiency system can pay for itself in utility savings over the life of the equipment.
In addition, if you have air quality or moisture control issues, or if anyone in your family has allergies, respiratory issues, or dry scalp and skin, we may recommend such things as humidifiers, air filters, and more. These items don’t cost much, but they provide substantial benefits for particular situations and families.
