Attic Insulation – When More Is Better

The temperature is dropping in Georgia and your energy bills are raising.  Do you know the r-value of the insulation in your attic?  Probably not.  The Department of Energy recommends an r-value of 49 with a minimum of 30 in your home insulation.  By adding the recommended r-value to your home, you can ensure that your home is working efficiently while lowering your energy bills.

By adequately insulating your attic you will keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.  This will make your HVAC system use less energy and save you money on your bills.
