It’s hard to keep the heat in when there are so many ways air can escape! Insulation, ventilation, recessed lighting - the list goes on. But don’t worry! There are also lots of things you can do to make sure your house stays insulated and warm. Check out these tips & tricks for keeping your attic nice & cozy all year.
Almost half of your household's energy can be used on heating & air conditioning. The attic plays a substantial role in this, as both heat & cooling are affected.
The reason for this might not be as easy to see as some would think. The ventilation and heating system is complete, and the insulation R-value can vary depending on the type and thickness of insulation materials.
In addition, other things contribute to heat flow & distribution in attics. The equipment’s location in the attic, the stack effect, and going to pieces of farmhouse fans in the attic can all have a major impact. The recessed lighting meshwork and an air outlet that leads from the room into said attic have a role as well.
