Is Attic Insulation Really That Important?
Quite simply: yes! Attic insulation has a huge effect on your monthly energy bill. It's what helps to keep the temperature of your home comfortable, and keeps heat trapped inside instead of escaping. If you've noticed that your energy costs seem to be rising, the culprit may be wear and tear decreasing the effectiveness of your insulation.
What Problems Can Arise?
Elements like fire, or simply smoke, can cause harm to the integrity of your attic's insulation. However, water damage is particularly worrisome and needs attention. Lingering water in insulation can create mold growth, and spores of it can pollute the air in your house. This could be a health hazard if not taken care of, so it's best to do so right away.
Another cause of concern for your insulation, as well as your household overall, is rodents. Even if they've gone from your attic, it's highly likely they've left behind various problems. Aside from the insulation being impaired, as they like to dig at it and use it for nesting, their waste carries disease. This can easily enter your home, either through the items stored up there, or by tracking it down on your shoes.
