Attic Insulation Helps Your Home Comfort System
When you’re trying to improve your air conditioning and heating system, there’s a lot you can do. We recommend scheduling maintenance every year to help your air conditioner run smoothly and efficiently throughout the summer and your heater work better in the winter. Annual maintenance, along with regular filter changes, keep your most important comfort systems running smoothly.
But none of this will work as well if the rest of your home isn’t working efficiently. Attic insulation helps your air conditioner and your heater to operate properly and use less energy, ultimately prolonging a system’s lifespan! We’ll tell you how below!
How Attic Insulation Improves AC/Heating Performance
When you want a more efficient home, attic insulation is a great place to start. Without any attic insulation, all of the heat your heating system make can just move through the ceiling. And in the summer, heat can move into your home more easily.
Your air conditioner cannot run at capacity when heat is constantly re-entering the home through the walls and attic. It has to run for longer periods, which means higher energy bills for you. And what’s worse is that all of this extra work strains the system. Parts can wear down, and your air conditioning system may even fail long before its expected lifespan is over.
Insulation is a heat barrier. It might not be able to completely block heat, but it does slow movement, making it a lot more difficult for heat to move from one area to the other. For you, this means:
- You’ll feel cooler, faster.
- Your energy bills can be lower.
- Your air conditioner/heater may last for longer.
Call a qualified technician to assess your insulation and decide whether insulation should be added, and where.
