Is Roof Insulation Important?Daniel
Roof insulation acts like a protective shield and the material can be likened to a blanket. Insulation is lodged between the roof surface and the roof ceiling and is used to decrease the transfer of heat. In warmer temperatures insulation can cool a house and in colder weather conditions insulation can benefit by helping to keep your house warm.
Here we have listed 6 roof insulation benefits.
By insulating your roof space you may notice a reduction in your energy costs each year. The initial costs of the insulation will be recovered with lesser energy bills. For both heating and cooling, the roof is generally the most cost-effective place to add insulation.
A well insulated roof space can save on your monthly energy bills, reducing energy use related to heating and cooling by 20% or more by retaining heat or cool air within your house depending on the time of year.
Installing insulation is an easy way to increase your homes resale price. As a marketing approach insulation is a positive for any potential house buyer when they realise the energy reduction benefits. A newly insulated roof can increase a home’s value. Likewise, a roof which is not insulated or maintained can reduce a home’s value.
