Proper attic insulation is vital for comfort, for energy efficiency, and for helping keep your roofing in Tampa in top working condition. A lack of proper insulation can cause a number of problems for your home like mold growth within your interiors, uncomfortable temperatures indoors, and ice dams during winter.
Insulation works by allowing more heated or cooled air to stay within your home. This is ideal for keeping your home more comfortable whether it’s in the midst of summer or during cooler months in December. Without the necessary insulation to keep that comfortable air within your home, your heating and cooling systems will have to work harder to heat or cool your home. This of course can lead to more expensive power costs.
If you’re unsure whether your home has the necessary levels of insulation, you may want to contact a Tampa roofer like Arry’s Roofing to come and take a look at your roof and attic.
Usually, when you hear about installing additional insulation for your attic, Owens Corning is the brand that comes to mind. At Arry’s Roofing, we are a certified provider of their products. We can recommend blown-in, fiberglass, or cellulose insulation for your home. We recommend these types of insulation over others like rolled insulation because these have better thermal resistance and can be installed easily in various homes without additional steps required.
Aside from the improved comfort you’re going to get with additional insulation, you can also save a lot of money on your energy costs. You can save between 10 to 50 percent on your heating and cooling costs. You can even receive tax credits by installing additional insulation for your home.
