Last Wintertime, both of us experienced record frosty un-even temperatures & my house felt downright cold at times. I kept raising the thermostat setting, & ended up spending a fortune in heating bills. When Springtime finally arrived, I contacted a local Heating & A/C corporation for a recommendation. I wasn’t sure if I needed to replace the oil furnace or find a way to tighten up my house to prevent energy waste. After a thorough inspection of the oil furnace, ductwork & home, the corporation commanded attic insulation. Attic insulation provides a level of protection, helping to regulate indoor uneven temperatures & block the move of energy outside. Because my existing insulation was old, thin & had been compromised by rodents, it was no longer doing the task. Insulation is designed to trap air in billions of tiny pockets. These pockets had become flattened, & injured by water & dirt. Mice had shredded & left behind feces within the insulation. It needed to be removed & replaced. Improving the integrity of insulation provides the benefit of reducing heating & cooling expenses! Now that the insulation has been installed, there’s less strain on the air conditioning & oil furnace, increasing the potential for malfunction & hopefully, lengthening repair life. Plus, the heating & cooling unit is able to maintain a more even & comfortable temperature. The mold & mildew troubles in the attic have been eliminated & there is less moisture & condensation in the home. We’ve even noticed that both of us no longer hear exterior noises as much. The insulation will also protect the roof, preventing premature deterioration, ice build up & icicle formation.
