Unfortunately, moisture accumulation in the home is a common problem for homeowners. Moisture is most likely to build up in the basement, crawl spaces, and the attic. Insulating your attic is a great option to help reduce the amount of moisture in the home and prevent water damage. Here are three reasons to insulate your attic.
Though you have to invest some money to insulate your attic initially, it can actually save you a lot of money in the long run. Insulation helps to regulate the temperature in your home, which will save you some money on those expensive energy bills. It helps to keep the cool air in when it’s hot and traps heat when it’s cold.
Insulating your attic also helps to save the environment. It is a project that saves a lot of energy, so you won’t have to use as much. This reduces the amount of work that power plants have to do. As a result, pollution is decreased as well because most power plants harm the environment and release pollutants while they are running.
As mentioned before, insulating your attic helps to prevent moisture accumulation. Attics are a prime spot for moisture because of precipitation on the roof. When snow melts on the roof, it can cause ice dams and seep through to the attic. Over time, this can cause water damage in the home that is really costly to fix. Insulating your attic helps to ensure that moisture stays out because the temperature is regulated, so the excess warm air doesn’t cause the precipitation to melt as quickly. If water is leaking into the attic, it can be a sign that you may need roof repairs as well.
