A home’s attic is usually a dark, dirty, and somewhat forgotten space. But the truth is, a home’s attic is one of the more important spaces for keeping a home “comfortable” and they are almost always under insulated.
If you think there is a need to add insulation to your Denver attic this year, the best time to do it is in warmer months. The winter months pose more difficulties due to the weather and because demand is much higher, you will have to pay a premium for professional install.

Lower Energy Bills
Energy bills are on almost every homeowner’s mind no matter what the season is here in Denver. Whether it’s heating bills in the winter or cooling bills in the summer, the objective is to pay as little as possible each month. It turns out that one of the ways to save energy happens to be adding attic insulation. Adding insulation is the most cost-effective way to save on your energy bill as it pays for itself within 5 years.
Home Comfort Level
Comfortability is the most important aspect of coming home every day. Whether it be from work or getting your kids from school, walking into a home that is too hot or too cold is something you don’t want to deal with. If your home is under-insulated, you will begin to experience temperature differences room-to-room (sometimes rooms can fluctuate up to 15 degrees). In most homes, bedrooms are located upstairs so, in order to provide comfortability, you want to make sure your attic is properly insulated.
Even if you are not as concerned with your energy bills as others, one thing that you can get on board with is shrinking your effect on the planet. Teaming up with REenergizeCO to install insulation in your home can reduce your home’s energy output by up to 20%. Doing your part is important to the longevity and health of the Earth.
Does your home have eroding wood or eroding cement? There are many structural benefits that attic insulation provides to your home. In homes that are located in humid climates, as well as homes located in areas with heavy snow, like Colorado, leakage can be a huge problem for a home’s structural integrity. Proper insulation provides a buffer for your home by preventing leakage from causing extensive structural damage, which can save you money on repairs.
