Where Is Your Missing Heat Going?

Monday, February 1st, 2021

The short answer to this question is your attic. But if you’re confused by that answer, then you’re not alone. Not many homeowners realize that their drafty home has one major antagonist that’s constantly causing them to feel cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. No matter how much you insulate your windows, maintain your HVAC system, and insulate your walls, there’s still one big missing piece to this puzzle. That’s attic insulation.

Since heat naturally rises, the heat that’s created by your heating system can drift upwards into your attic where you won’t be able to feel it.
