How Can Attic Insulation Keep Your Home Cool During the Summer Published on June 14, 2017 How can attic insulation keep your home cool during the summer? When you consider attic insulation, you may think about warming your home; but did you know that attic insulation also helps make sure your home stays cool? The attic is where your home loses the majority of your cool air during the summer and installing insulation, or upgrading to a more efficient attic insulation, can help retain the cool air in your home instead of it getting away through the attic. How can attic insulation save you money on energy costs? Attic insulation can also help decrease energy use within your home, saving you money on your utility bills. Cost savings changes based on several factors, including the homeowner’s habits, if you use a smart thermostat, the type of cooling system you have, etc. On average, it’s estimated you could save up to 20% on utility bills when you add the suggested amount of attic insulation. If you have insulation currently, you may need to confirm the age and see if it’s to the EPA guidelines for energy efficiency. Also, if it has compressed, it could not be effective anymore.
