Replacing attic insulation to improve energy efficiency

In my local part the summer time temperature frequently climbs into the high eighties for even the nineties.

The humidity is brutal, but during the winter, the temperature officially plummets into the downside digits.

The wind chill makes it dangerous to spend much time outdoors. My associate and I often accumulate numerous feet of snow in a single overnight span. The weather extremes require either heating or cooling for the majority of the year. There is seldom a time when we aren’t relying on the heater or the a/c. The yearly bills are regularly a concern. I continually look for occasions to tighten up the thermal envelope and eliminate energy waste. I spent a small luck replacing windows and installing modern exterior doors. Last year, I learn an article about the importance of a officially insulated attic. According to what I read, the attic is designed as a barrier between the outdoor elements and the indoor living space. It can significantly improve energy efficiency and comfort. Heat naturally migrates to cooler areas. In the winter, if the attic is especially cold, the heat from the living part will rise upward and create more toil for the heater. The heater will need to run longer and use more energy yet potentially provide inferior comfort. In the summer, an warm attic can lead to the hot, humid air seeping into the living area.This adds to demands on the a/c. I spent a actually unpleasant weekend in July removing the old insulation in the attic. It had been degraded by moisture and rodents. It was dirty and disgusting. While I didn’t care about installing the modern insulation, it has made a positive impact.
