The importance of attic insulation for maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature throughout Fort Wayne's icy winters and unpredictable summers cannot be overstated. Here's why attic insulation is such a necessity.
Fort Wayne’s winters are frigid and snowy, so your furnace needs to be at peak performance before it gets cold. Repairs to heating ductwork are often neglected because the ducts aren't easily visible, however, this can lead to serious problems. Here are some suggestions on how to recognize broken or loose ducts:
Your home’s heat can escape through gaps and even the smallest cracks, but heat loss doesn’t stop there. Heat travels toward cooler areas, and if its path isn’t properly blocked by insulating materials, it will be conducted and transmitted out of the home through exterior walls and window glass. By discovering heat’s escape routes and eliminating or reducing them, your home will feel more comfortable, your heating system won’t have to work as hard and you will save money.
