Sealing air leaks and adding insulation can help:
The attic is typically the biggest source of energy loss in a home. Installing the right amount of insulation and sealing air leaks can make a big difference in your energy bills and comfort.
Insulation levels and thermal performance are measured by R-Value. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation's ability to resist heat flow.
Many homes have as little as 9 in. of attic insulation in regions where the U.S. Department of Energy recommends 16 in. It is recommended that most homes in Alabama have between R-49 and R-60 of attic insulation, depending on the insulation material.
Air sealing is a critical step when insulating an attic because sealing air leaks stops conditioned interior air from leaking into the attic. Air sealing can prevent attic mold and significantly reduce heating and cooling bills. Standard Heating & Air Conditioning Company uses a variety of materials and techniques to stop this energy-wasting air leakage.
