Assessing Your Attic Insulation

 Can you remember the last time you poked your head into the attic?

Were you too focused on cobwebs and spiders to check out your insulation? 

Attic insulation plays a key role in your home's temperature regulation, and can directly affect the health of your roof if it’s left in poor condition. 

Assessing Your Attic Insulation

To determine if your attic insulation is adequate, consider the following factors:

  1. Insulation thickness: The thickness of your attic insulation matters! Insulation should be thick enough to provide the thermal barrier you need.
  2. Insulation coverage: Ensure that your attic insulation covers all accessible areas and is not compressed or damaged. Gaps, seams, or missing insulation can lead to heat loss.
  3. Age and condition: Over time, insulation can deteriorate or become less effective. Assess the condition of your attic insulation, and if it shows signs of wear, consider replacing or adding to it.
