The Importance of Your Attic Space

My kids (6, 4, and 2) and I were in the attic putting away storage items today…they love being in the attic! And they asked me, “Daddy, why do you spend so much time in the attic? Why do you work in the attic? Although hard to explain to a 4-year-old, it makes a lot of sense that the pathway to the thermal performance of your home is THROUGH THE ATTIC.

The attic significantly impacts air quality, comfort in your home, and energy savings. As I explained this to my kids, they started to understand that when you fix the main problem (in any situation), all the symptoms can also be corrected!

The Pathway to Air Quality Leads Through Your Attic

Dust, rodent leave-behinds, old storage items, bacteria (mold and mildew) – Your attic is strange. The materials in your attic can, and eventually will, infiltrate your duct and HVAC system and can be pulled through your ceiling sheetrock seams and electrical penetrations. All of this can create a massive air quality issue. We can fix it! Tidy up ductwork, seal your HVAC units, remove old insulation, and foam seal your attic floor. Solve the air quality issue by solving the attic issues.

The Pathway to Energy Savings is Through Your Attic

When it’s boiling in your attic, your HVAC equipment struggles; when it’s freezing, you need that separation between your living space and the attic. You have to control the attic environment to control how your systems perform – ultimately saving money on energy bills.

The Pathway to Comfort Goes Through the Attic Too

When you address these issues and gain control of the materials in your attic and your systems’ environment, you control the comfort of your home. Efficient HVAC systems and safe insulation materials equal lower energy bills, better air quality, and home comfort year-round!

So why is the attic so important? It’s because it provides comfort, air quality, and energy savings. It’s worth the time we spend educating and working in the craziest place in your house: your attic!
