Insulating your attic is the most effective way to improve the efficiency of your home. Heating in the Winter time and cooling during the Summer time becomes easier for your heating/cooling system.
How Does Attic Insulation Work?
Heat flows naturally from warmer areas to cooler ones. It does this by one of three different methods: conduction, where heat is delivered directly from one mass to another; convection, the transfer of hot air from one space to another (hot air rises, cool air sinks); and radiation, which simply means that any warm mass passes off heat toward a cooler one.
The main function of insulation is to minimize the radiation and convection effect of heat and minimize conduction. A green energy barrier works in conjunction with insulation helping our home to stay warmer in cool weather and cooler in warm weather.
