If you would like to make sure that your Newnan, Georgia, home is nice and cozy this winter, consider having your attic insulation checked and upgraded. Insulation helps keep warm air from flowing out of the roof, and the better insulated your attic is, the less heat will be released to the outside. Here are a few benefits of having adequate attic insulation.
All Rooms Will Be Evenly Heated
If your home is under-insulated, the temperatures of the rooms will vary depending on their location in the house. If you have a multi-level house, warm air is going to rise to the upper levels, warming the upper rooms more than the lower ones. If the attic is not insulated properly, much of that warmth will escape through the roof and your lower rooms will be too cool. Having good insulation, along with an efficient and well-maintained HVAC system, helps ensure that all the rooms are evenly heated.
Your HVAC System Will Run Efficiently
When you lose heat via an under-insulated attic, your heater and HVAC system has to work harder to keep the rooms warm. With proper insulation, your heater will not have to work overtime to keep the temperature consistent. Schedule an appointment to have one of our technicians visit your home to make sure you have enough attic insulation.
Your Indoor Air Quality Will Improve
If insufficient attic insulation is allowing outside air into your home, you could be compromising the quality of your indoor air. As outside air enters the home, pollutants, dust, smoke, and allergens are introduced. Poor air quality can trigger allergy and asthma attacks and contribute to poor health in general. Adequate insulation, along with a clean HVAC system, can help to improve the indoor air quality and keep your family healthy.
