No matter where you live in Colorado, adequate home insulation is key to reaping significant energy savings and reducing your overall carbon footprint.
Adequate attic insulation is an important element in ensuring energy efficient heating and cooling.
An overheated attic can have a significant effect on the temperature in the rest of your home. Summer heat can cause the temperature in your attic to run as high as 150 degrees. When the attic gets that hot, the heat can radiate into your living spaces.
As Colorado and Wyoming homeowners look for ways to save on their energy costs, many overlook the obvious: remedying inadequate insulation in their houses. Compared to buying a high-efficiency furnace or air conditioning unit, adding insulation is much less expensive up front.
