How does insulation lower utility costs?
The goal of an insulant is to limit how much heat transfers in and out of your home. Not only does it help in the winter, but it keeps your home cool in the summer months as well. This boost in your control of the climate in your home will cause both your A/C and furnace run less. That means less electricity and gas consumption throughout the year.
Attic Insulation Energy Savings
Hot air rises! Right through an attic which lacks the right R-value. If your attic does not have the right amount of insulation then 30% of all the warm air your furnace makes can leak out from your roof. In Michigan, the suggested level for a home’s attic is R-49 – R-60.
