Heat moves from warm areas to cool spaces. When it’s hot, attics without proper insulation will absorb heat from the sun. That warm air, in turn, moves into your living space. As a result, your air conditioner will have to work overtime to keep your Sheridan, Arkansas, home cool. Attic insulation prevents heat transfer and provides other benefits like energy savings and overall improved comfort.
Greater HVAC Efficiency
Reducing heat transfer with attic insulation will increase AC efficiency. Your air conditioner won’t need to work as hard to keep you cool. Attic insulation also helps to reduce wear and tear on your system. You’ll reduce the need for repairs, save energy, and even avoid early replacement.
Improved Indoor Comfort
Common signs of insufficient attic insulation include uneven indoor temperatures, hot and cold spots, and drafty rooms. Upstairs rooms may be too warm. Temperature differences between upstairs and downstairs rooms will be noticeable. Even with a state-of-the-art air conditioning system, insufficient insulation can make cooling challenging and more expensive. Insulation your attic helps to keep indoor air temperatures stable and consistent.
Better Humidity Control
The heat and humidity in the Sheridan area can last for much of the year. The right amount and type of attic insulation will help to minimize their impact on your home. Insulation prevents moisture from seeping into your home and affecting the temperature. High indoor humidity can put strain on your AC and promote the growth of fungi and bacteria.
An added benefit of attic insulation is its noise-reducing effect. It mutes the sounds coming from your home and keeps outside noise from disturbing you.
