Why Is Attic Insulation Important During The Summer?

If you’re like most people, you don’t give much thought to your attic insulation—until there is a problem with it. And if you’re feeling uncomfortably hot in your home this summer, it might just be time to start thinking about your insulation as the issue.

During the summer, if you turn on your air conditioner as the temperatures climb, your AC’s ability to keep your home cool is dependent on how much of the cooled air is retained in your home. If your attic insulation is insufficient, then the cooled air will simply seep right out of your house. Likewise, the hot air from outside will enter your home, causing your interior temperature to increase. As a result, your air conditioner will run constantly trying to keep up with the demands for cooled air, and your energy bills will skyrocket.

If you’re feeling too hot inside your home or your energy bills have soared, contact Atticare in San Francisco to see if your attic insulation could be to blame. Discuss the symptoms of poor attic insulation with one of our experts today by dialing 1-888-743-7243.
