Did you know Action Air does attic insulation? We sure do. Most homes have some sort of attic insulation, but that insulation settles and becomes less efficient over time. Since most of the heat from the home is lost through the attic, adding insulation can help reduce your energy usage year round while keeping your family feeling more comfortable. According to the Energy Star website, one quick way to determine if you need more is to look across the span of your attic. If your insulation is just level with or below your floor joists (i.e., you can easily see your joists), you should add more. If you cannot see any of the floor joists because the insulation is well above them, you probably have enough and adding more may not be cost-effective. It is important that the insulation be evenly distributed with no low spots; sometimes there is enough insulation in the middle of the attic and very little along the eaves. If your attic insulation covers your joists and is distributed evenly, you probably have enough. Your Action Air technician will be happy to take a peek into your attic when he is at your home to do his regular maintenance to determine if your home is in need of additional insulation.
