The Benefits of Roof Insulation
Insulation in your home is vital to maintaining comfortable temperatures.
Not only will you stay more comfortable with sufficient insulation, you will also have lower energy costs. Typically, this insulation is found in the walls of your home, but that is not the only place it can be installed. Roof insulation is another option for the homeowner seeking more comfort. What other added benefits does roof insulation provide?
The most common roof insulation installed is either fiberglass or spray foam insulation. The spray foam performs better than the fiberglass and it also hardens where particles will not float around your attic space.
One of the greatest functions of roof insulation is how it keeps out hot air during the summer. Dark roofs are common and they absorb a lot of the sun’s energy. This can heat up your attic significantly, causing your air conditioner to work harder than usual. One way to remedy this is to have a lighter colored roof installed, but roof insulation will block that heat from reaching the attic.
Roof insulation will also help during the winter. Heat in your attic can warm up your roof and cause snow or ice to melt, which can create ice dams. Roof insulation will keep the warm air in so your energy costs stay down and your roof stays cold.
