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.

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

If you’re shopping for insulation products, Owens Corning ProCat® Loosefill Fiberglas™ Insulation is one of the top choices on the market. With the ProCat system, you’ll experience a high level of thermal performance, which can help to make your home more comfortable and quiet. This advanced insulation system means you’ll have more consistency in the temperature of your home, room to room, giving you a more comfortable home overall.
