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.

Some can be easily spotted while others require equipment such as thermal imaging camera to identify. The most common leaks occur around utility wire houses, the attic top plates, recessed lighting, waste stacks, and soffit drops.
