As far as home improvements go, Attic insulation is not expensive compared to other upgrades like windows and doors and the payoff is quick. Poor insulation in your home is costing you money and increasing the chances for mold growth.
Are the second-floor bedrooms in your house always freezing in the winter? Is reaching a steady, comfortable temperature in your home a lost cause? Do you notice that your energy bills have been steadily increasing?
If yes, you may be neglecting an essential part of your home that’s responsible for keeping warm air inside your home where it belongs: the attic.
Attic Insulation: The Secret Upgrade for Staying Warm and Cozy at Home
The lack of heat you experience at home is almost always due to the lack of proper insulation and sealing in your attic. Without a minimum thickness of R50, your home experiences heat loss up to 40%. The R-value is a measure of thermal resistance. If there is loose, fluffy insulation in your attic it has a value of only about R3 per inch.
Measuring and calculating what you have is a great place to start when figuring out how much insulation you need to add. If you don’t have at least 16 inches of insulation in your attic, you’re letting money waft out of your home.
But with attic insulation, not only do you keep your home warm, but you also earn more energy savings back in your pocket!
A window air conditioning unit can suffice to keep a relatively small home cool during warm spring and summer days.
The cost of Installing a window unit costs depends on the size unit needed for your home. Having a window unit can bring added comfort to your home at a reasonable price but it is much less powerful than a central air conditioning system.
If you have a larger home with multiple rooms, a central air conditioning system would be a better choice. Homeowners can pay between $500 to $4000 for central a/c installation The cost depends on the unit, additional items needed such as duct-work and the installation rates.
Here are some additional factors that determine the kind of system you need, as well as the price.
