Though it may sound counter-intuitive, studies have proven time and time again that increasing the amount of attic insulation in your home actually increases the effectiveness of your furnace heating system for winter months as well as your air conditioning system for summer months. You see, a great deal of the energy that is used in your home for heating rises upwards and finds its way to the attic. There, due to heat conduction and the second law of thermodynamics, hot air will attempt to escape in the winter towards cooler air outside, while in the summer hot air outside the home will attempt to migrate inside the home due to these same physical laws. The bottom line is, with less than adequate insulation in the attic, heat is going to move inwards or outwards and affect your heating and cooling bills accordingly. The best way to deal with such a problem is to increase your attic’s insulation to EPA-recommended levels as much as is possible.
