If your attic has no insulation, or if the insulation is old or poorly installed, you may be using more energy than you might expect to keep your Louisville, Kentucky, home at comfortable temperatures throughout the year. That’s because the attic is often one of the largest areas in the home that allows heat to transfer between the inside and outside. Poor attic insulation can result in the need for your HVAC system to run harder and longer than it should to keep up with your desire for a comfortable indoor temperature.
There are a few ways you can tell whether or not your attic is insufficiently insulated, the easiest of which is to visually inspect the attic of your home. If you don’t see any insulation in your attic, or if the only material there looks sparse, moldy, or deteriorated, then you will definitely need to have some installed. Also, if you notice that the temperature seems to fluctuate greatly inside your home or that the air conditioner keeps running without much temperature change, your insulation is probably not adequate for preventing heat transfer.
