This is a blog that was originally posted in October 2011 but with record low temperatures we thought it was worth a re-post!
Below is a photo from a customer who recently had TAP Insulation installed in their attic. This picture was taken in late October of 2010 during one of our early cold snaps.
The house on the right belongs to our customer. Notice that his roof is still covered in ice while his neighbor’s house is thawed out. The reason for this is that the TAP Insulation on our customer’s house is keeping all of the warm air trapped into the living areas instead of escaping through the attic. When the warm air from your heating system escapes from the attic, it melts the ice on the roof which means that all of the hard work that your heating system is doing is not being used efficiently. Properly insulating your attic can save you between 20-38% on your energy bills by ensuring that your HVAC system is not being overworked.
