Longtime Colorado residents know that our winters can be brutal. Granted, there are stretches where we want to break out the shorts and pretend its summertime. Just when we start to get comfortable with Mother Nature, she throws us a curveball with a week straight of bitterly cold temperatures. What do you currently do in your home to combat the nasty weather? Most Coloradans simply turn up the thermostat and call it good. Should you make a habit of this, though, your wallet will take a hit from the month’s energy bill. That’s why it’s so important to have proper roof insulation in your home. Not only does insulation save you money, but it also keeps your family warm and cozy throughout the winter. Keep reading to learn more about our Fort Collins roof insulation services.
Because heat rises, it will escape from your home through the attic and out the roof. Properly installed insulation can prevent this from happening. You may be wondering, “How can I tell if my current insulation is still getting the job done?” First, look at the way snow melts from your roof. Watch for:
- Uneven snow or frost melt across the roof
- Icicle formation
- Your roof being “snow-free” before everyone else’s on the block
If you notice any of these, chances are your roof’s insulation needs updating. Note that higher energy bills, moisture accumulation (rot and/or mold), and trouble regulating your home’s temperature stem from a roof needing better insulation. So if you’ve thought about having new insulation installed, here are some of the benefits you can expect upon completion:
- Decreased energy bills
- More consistent temperatures in your home
- Increased home value
- Added fire protection (can decrease a fire’s chances of spreading)
- Reduced health hazards from old, potentially moldy insulation
- Reduced noise coming through the roof
