Save Money by Increasing Attic Insulation in Tempe
Having the proper amount of insulation in your attic can make your Tempe home more pleasant throughout the year. Better energy efficiency could also help you save money on utility bills.
Do you have the correct amount of insulation? Probably not. A recent study by the North American Insulation Manufacturers Association found 90 percent of homes in the U.S. are underinsulated. If every home in the country was properly insulated to today’s building code, the Boston University School of Public Health determined it would cut electric consumption by 37 billion kilowatts. That’s enough electricity to power 3.4 million American homes every year!
Does My Home Have Enough Insulation?
You can assess existing insulation to determine if you have enough in your attic. If it’s shallower than 7” deep, your home is underinsulated. In Tempe, 13-14” deep is recommended.
Additionally, if your home is more than 10 years old, you’ll likely need more insulation.
Enhancing your insulation levels could positively affect your energy bills, saving you up to 20 percent.** It can provide a vapor barrier against humidity, stop air leaks and may limit wear and tear on your HVAC system.
