The attic can be a major source of your home’s heat loss and the cause of energy inefficiency—mostly because heat rises. A poorly insulated attic allows the heated interior air to rise up into the attic and escape through multiple air leaks. Along with heat loss through the attic, a cold ceiling makes rooms below the attic even colder. According to ENERGY STAR®, poorly insulated attics are responsible for up to 30% of the heat loss in your home and up to 70% of energy loss is from the attic and roof; that’s equivalent to leaving a window open … all year round. This is why when thinking about improving your home, our attic insulation services in Rockford, IL, are a great starting point.
