Can Attic Insulation Reduce Your Cooling Costs?
Summers are getting warmer and warmer in the UK. Higher temperatures also mean higher energy bills.
The good news is that you can you lower your costs this summer without lowering your quality of life or breaking the bank.
One of the most efficient ways to do that is by investing in high-quality attic insulation.
If you’d like to find out more about how this is possible, then you should keep on reading.
INSULATION HELPS BLOCK HEAT FROM ENTERING YOUR HOME
Most homes absorb heat through the roof. In fact, one of the primary sources of heat build-up in your home is sunlight being absorbed through this part of your home.
Insulating the attic is your first and most efficient line of defence when looking to prevent heat radiating into the house.
That’s because attic insulation acts as a barrier protecting your home against sunlight. During the winter, it will help prevent heat from escaping your home, so it’s an effective all-year-round solution.
That makes it a smart investment for the future that will more than pay for itself in just a few short years.
ATTIC INSULATION IMPROVES AIR TIGHTNESS
If you have an air conditioner, chances are a lot of that cold air is lost through air leaks along the roofline. Proper insulation will help you reduce these air leaks and thus reduce your cooling costs this summer.
Cutting down on draughts also enables unwanted heat flows to be controlled.
In other words, it will reduce the amount of hot air entering your home as well. As a consequence, you’ll have less trouble keeping the temperature inside your home at a comfortable level.
MAINTAIN CONSISTENT TEMPERATURES INDOORS
Another way attic insulation can help you reduce your cooling costs during the warm season is by maintaining a constant temperature inside your home.
What you need to understand about heat is that it is always in motion. That means that during the summer, all the heat outside flows into your home. That will make the temperatures inside your home fluctuate.
As mentioned above, insulation is very efficient when it comes to reducing heat flow. Therefore, there won’t be any sudden changes in temperature, regardless of the weather outside.
A LONG-TERM SOLUTION
It’s true the heat becomes unbearable only a few days during a typical British summer. However, temperatures are only expected to rise in the years to come. It’s already no longer enough to just open up the windows to cool off.
Why spend money on an air conditioner that will only result in your energy bills skyrocketing during the summer?
It makes more sense to invest in sustainable home improvement for the future.
