Water damage is not only a threat to your basement or crawl space. Surprisingly, there can be a lot of moisture accumulated in your attic as well. And the main cause of these issues could be simply a matter of proper insulation. Here are some reasons why you should protect your attic by having it insulated.
Addressing the issue at hand, moisture accumulation, there are a couple of key factors that insulating your attic will do to prevent it. Because your attic is directly attached to your roof, that means it is the first source for collecting rain, snow, and other water through leak and condensation. By having your attic insulated you can also take the opportunity to get an inspection to spot any sources of water damage. Once those issues are remedied, the insulation will control the temperature in your attic and prevent further condensation.
Quality insulation is also one of the top contributors to an energy-efficient home. The main design of insulation is for the purpose of sealing in the heat or air conditioning of your home so that you save energy and money. And since most attics are already open, without drywall, then it won’t be as expensive to have your attic insulated.
Lastly, another benefit of a properly insulated attic is that it is kinder to the environment. When insulation keeps your house from consuming too much energy, then it will reduce your home’s carbon footprint. In the long run, you will contribute to a cleaner way of living for the planet.
