Alabama Pest Control: Attic Insulation
The transition from winter to spring can wreak havoc on your home’s energy consumption. Living in Alabama during the early spring gives us cold mornings and hot afternoons. Changing your thermostat to keep you comfortable inside shouldn’t be a daily task. Your attic insulation should be able to properly keep your home either cool or warm depending on the outside temperature. Let’s go over the benefits of getting your home properly insulated.
Benefits to Attic Insulation:
- Lower utility bills: You can save an average of 15 percent on your utility bills by getting better insulation in your attic.
- Safer home structure: Insulation can help prevent gradual damage to your home caused by heat and moisture.
- Better indoor air quality: Poor insulation can allow dust, dirt, mold, and mildew to enter your home.
- Keep pests away: Some insulations are coated with borate, which can affect pests such as roaches, ants, and more by causing a disruption to their stomachs and can also affect their nervous systems. It isn’t harmful to pets or family.
Attic insulation creates pockets that slow heat or cool air from attempting to flow through your home. This will help with uneven temperatures throughout your home. Installing insulation will also help your HVAC system run more efficiently and will help cut down on the times you have to adjust the thermostat, allowing lower energy bills.
