4 Ways More Attic Insulation Could Save You Money

4 Ways More Attic Insulation Could Save You Money

It doesn’t get any more thrilling than roof insulation, does it? For a Roofing company that might be true because they can tell you about all the exciting (and money-saving) benefits of well-installed insulation, but for the average homeowner, we just know it as the cotton candy fluff quietly adorning our unfinished attic and basement walls.

 

So, Why Is Roof Insulation Important And How Can It Save You Money?
 

There are five main things Insulation does for your home (and your wallet) :

  • Helps your roof last longer
  • It keeps the warm air inside 
  • Reduces outside noise 
  • Reduces your environmental footprint

 

Keep Your Roof Cool and in Shape

How to spot it:

If your roof heats up enough during the Winter it can cause ice dams to form, roof condensation, and wearing on your roof shingles. 

The Issue:

The heat that escapes your home when there is a lack of proper roof insulation may cause snow or ice to melt and can cause it to pool and re-freeze later into ice dams or leak into your home. It might not seem like a problem now until you find water dripping from your ceiling, or even worse see other signs of a hidden leak that could lead to costly repairs if unaddressed.  

 

Cozy Toes And A Lower Utility Bill 

How to Spot it:

It’s Wintertime and Hallmark movies are playing, and you’re getting nestled in to watch You’ve Got Mail for the 300th time. Picture yourself snuggled up with some wool socks and a mug of tea; This would be picture-perfect, if not a little cheesy, without the high-pitched ringing of 2 space heaters blasting the heat, while you’re actually wearing two sweaters and 3 layers of blankets just to be comfortably warm.

The Issue: 

Think of those fluffy yellow clouds of insulation like packing your home in a warm cozy blanket. 

If you’re constantly turning up the thermostat and dread leaving your shower into the frigid bathroom air, you’d be surprised at how much of a difference a few tufts of insulation will do. Not only will you be able to take off a few layers of sweaters, but this will dramatically lower your utility bill.

 

Your Own Peaceful And Quiet Bubble 

How to Spot it:

Do you find yourself waking up agitated in the morning by the sound of your neighbor’s routine potty break at 7 am every morning or angry commuters stuck in traffic? This may be a sign your home does not have insulation, enough of it, or perhaps the right type! 

The Issue:

We think you could probably tell us more about what the exact offense is that is intruding on your peaceful sleep, but the point is there are options to reduce outside noise! Do yourself a favor, hop on Google and search, “Roofers near me,” to speak to a roofing company about Sound-proofing and absorbing insulation options such as fiberglass, mineral wool, cotton, and cellulose insulation materials.

 

Feel Good about Increasing your Home’s Sustainability

How to spot it:

Utility bill’s going through the roof in the winter months? Blasting the AC in the summer to stay cool from the heat? 

The Issue:

Not only does this lead to increased costs, but it is costing more energy to heat and cool your home to combat changing temperatures. With better insulation, it can help keep hot or cool air out of your home, and your thermostat lower. 

 

Keep Warm Air In And Cold Air Out:

Tiny pockets of air get trapped in between the insulation and keep your house warm when the weather starts to get cold. Insulation also prevents cold air from entering your home. If you want to get down to the science of it, when the cold air tries to reach your home from the outside, the insulation acts as a convector and transforms the cold air with the warm air in the home to be a stable, equal temperature.

Frequent Questions Our Clients Have For Us

While the timeline for replacing your roof varies depending on material (asphalt shingles average a lifespan of 15-20 years while clay tiles last up to 70 years), there are a few key telltale signs you should replace or repair your roof. Ignoring these signs can lead to mold, rotting, unsightly stains and discoloration, energy inefficiency and more. If you suspect it’s time to assess your roof for repairs give us a call!

If your roof is leaking, first move things out of the way and protect your interior from water damage by collecting the water in buckets and covering things that you want to keep dry with a tarp. Remember to take photos of the leak and any damage for any insurance claims you may have to make later. 

If you see water collecting and sagging, insert a small pin into it and gradually make it bigger and catch the water into a bucket. This will prevent that water from spreading outwards and causing more damage.

Next, call a roofing company. Trying to climb onto a wet roof to makeshift tarp over the leak is not only dangerous but may not solve the issue, especially long term. Call the professionals, and spare any further damage as the leak could worsen. Plus, a good roofing company will be able to tell you whether repairs are worth it or if the overall condition and future problem areas indicate it would be more cost effective in the longterm to replace it.
