Insulation is one thing that can help keep a home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The job must be done correctly to maximize effectiveness and keep from causing more issues in the future. In the video, you will be introduced to a fundamental way of adding insulation to your attic.
Attic insulation has a way of settling over time. That means that within a short time you can notice a difference in the temperature within the home.
Insulation should be thick enough to affect the temperature. The various depths of insulation are typically set by code and should be followed based on where the home is located.
To start adding insulation, it is advisable to use fiberglass insulation, which can be laid into place without much effort. You will want to remove the paper backing as it can cause moisture to collect in the insulation and destroy all the work that you will have done.
The key to laying insulation in the attic is to allow the air to flow through. It should be allowed to breathe to maximize effectiveness.
