Save Money By Insulating Your Home Attic

Is Your Insulated Attic Looks Like The One on The Picture?
November herald's the start of our cold season and with it, a rise in energy costs.. To significantly reduce heat loss and expenses. It pays to winterize the one place where most heat is lost: the attic. Here is a check list of items to focus on to keep the heat in: 
  • Weather strip and insulate the attic access door.
  • Seal around the outside of the chimney.
  • Seal around plumbing vents both in the attic floor and in the roof.
  • Cap off the top of interior walls in old houses where you can peer into the wall cavity from the attic.
  • Insert fiberglass insulation around electrical wire penetrations at the top of interior walls.
  • Staple a radiant barrier under the rafters or joists to reflect 97% of the radiant heat that strikes it.
That will help a lot to keep the heat in and the savings in your pocket.
