How to Tell if Your Attic Is Under-Insulated


According to ENERGY STAR®, around 90% of American homes are under-insulated. More specifically, the attic is often found as one of the most commonly under-insulated areas in a home. In this post, reputable roofing contractor Bone Dry Roofing shares tips on how you can tell if your attic is under-insulated. We also discuss one of the best insulation products that you can use in your home.

 Attic Is Under-Insulated

Signs of Poor Insulation

Here are some signs of under-insulation that you should look out for:

  1. Uneven Heating and Cooling – If your home can’t seem to cool down during summer and warm up during winter, this can be due to poor attic insulation. In some cases, it may also be caused by poor air sealing.
  2. Uncomfortable Temperatures – Because your home is incapable of staying cool in the summer and warm in the winter, this can cause you to experience uncomfortable temperatures in your home.
  3. High Energy Bills – An under-insulated attic can force your HVAC system to work harder and longer than necessary. Consuming more energy, the system will naturally cause your heating and cooling bills to rise.

Take note that inadequate attic insulation can also lead to roofing problems. Over time, drafts and condensation may damage certain components of your roof system. In this case, a roof repair would be necessary.

What You Should Know About the ProCat® System

We had Bone Dry do masonry, roofing & gutter for us. Everyone we dealt with was professional, polite & on time. We were actually amazed how fast they did the roof & it looked great. Actually everything looked great

The experience of working with all of the folks at Bone Dry Roofing was top notch. Detailed photos and videos were provided for the initial inspection of the roof and then multiple photos were provided throughout the installation. I live in another state and was very well pleased working with them long distance. They made it very easy and stress free. The shingle roof - and all new decking - was replaced in less than 7 hours. Other teams of theirs will be back to replace the b pipe and the gutters next week.

AJ Snow and his crew did a fantastic job. I got pictures and text throughout the project until completion. Will always use Bone Dry Roofing. That are very good and do great work!
