Save money on energy by topping up attic insulation
(NC)—A simple project that will help keep your home cool this summer is topping up your attic insulation. This easy project will reduce your household energy consumption and will save you money on those energy bills.
A poorly insulated attic is a primary source of energy loss, forcing your AC unit to work harder than necessary. Most attics are insulated, but not with much. Over time, insulation can settle and compact, allowing heat to escape through gaps. Fill in these gaps and increase the overall R-value of the house by layering Roxul Rockfill loose insulation on top of the existing material. Easy to use, all you need to do is loosen it up with your hands and spread it out on top of the existing insulation, in between gaps and hand-to-reach spots. This layer will keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
