Ah the attic; the part of the home that many of us have a tendency to underestimate. Whether if it’s used as storage or converted to a liveable space, attics can be incredibly useful to us as homeowners. What many don’t realize, however, is how attics can contribute to our home’s energy efficiency. If left untreated, our attics can be a major cause of heat gain and loss throughout the year, causing our HVAC systems to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature in the rest of our home. With this in mind, in part one of our blog series, we’ll look at a few ways that our energy saving products can help you increase your attic’s energy efficiency this summer.
Healthy Home 365 aims to provide our customers with a wide variety of energy saving products, from insulating paint to water heater wraps, Nest thermostats and more. Get in touch with us today to learn how you can turn your home into an energy efficient home!
A Great Way To Seal Off Your Attic Stairs
For those of you who live in homes with attics, you’ve likely noticed how the temperature in your attic likely reflects the temperature current outdoor temperature. In some cases, your attic’s temperature can even be an exaggerated version of what it currently feels like outside. While many people have accepted that this is simply something that happens when you have an attic, this isn’t always ideal, considering that many people use their attics as a place to store everything from clothing to books to holiday decor.
Healthy Home 365 has designed the perfect product to help you maintain a more comfortable temperature in your attic year round; it’s an insulation system called KOOLTent. The main reason why you notice excessively warm temperatures in the summer and excessively cold ones in the winter has to do with your attic stairs. Your attic stairs can be a major culprit of air loss and transfer, which in turn causes your attic to reflect the temperature of the outdoors. With simple installation and easy zipper access, the KOOLTent is as effective as a double-paned window in relation to reducing heat transfer, helping you save energy and increase the overall comfort level of your attic’s temperature. Installing KOOLTent in your attic this summer will help you increase your overall HVAC efficiency, as well, as it won’t have to work as hard to heat or cool your home.
