How Proper Attic Insulation Helps Your Roof

How well your roof performs not only depends on the condition of your roof, but also the inside of your home. Having proper attic insulation can help your roof by maximizing its performance and durability. It helps keep excess moisture and heat out. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about ice dams, wet wood, or interior damage. 

So, let’s go over how proper attic insulation helps your roof. 

Increases Home Comfort 

Without proper insulation, your home is more vulnerable to outside temperatures. This means, your home may be getting extra hot in the summer and extra cold in the winter, which can be a costly inconvenience. You may also find that some rooms are warmer and some are colder since your heat or air conditioning are not being distributed evenly. Additionally, your heating and cooling system may be working extra hard due to poor insulation. 

So, ensuring proper attic insulation can help increase the comfort in your home by helping keep inside temperatures where they need to be. 

Protects Heating & Cooling Equipment 

When your attic is properly insulated, your heating and cooling equipment works less. This is because your equipment gets to rest when your home is able to hold the temperature. However, without proper insulation your equipment may be working twice as hard to ensure your house is warm or cool. Also, you may find your equipment wears out faster and you may have to replace certain parts. 

Improves Air Quality 

The air quality in your home is extremely important. It is easy for air pollutants to enter your home if there is poor insulation or gaps in it. Proper attic insulation can prevent these unhealthy air pollutants from entering your home, making it easier for you to breathe.
