Signs You Need More Attic Insulation
If you’re not sure your attic is the problem, you’ll want to look for the signs and symptoms of air leakage between your attic and the rest of your home (or, for attics that are insulated to be occupied, between your attic and the outdoors).
- Snow melts faster on your roof than on your neighbors’
- Ice dams form hanging off your roof
- Draftiness and temperature fluctuation in rooms beneath the attic
- Unusually energy expenditure despite efficient HVAC systems
These are tell-tale signs that you have a problem with your attic leaking heat in or out, especially if more than one of these is true. While this could track to a different culprit, such as a poorly constructed or sealed window, insulation is the likeliest source of your problem.
