Insulation inside your home’s walls can help you save energy, especially during cold Chicagoland winters when the temperatures plummet or during sweltering summers when it’s hard to leave your air conditioned home. But if your attic isn’t properly insulated also, then your home won’t be as energy efficient as it could be.
If you haven’t examined your attic’s insulation in a while, you should make a trip upstairs to determine if you need more. Take a close look at the floor joists. If you can see these support beams, then you don’t have enough insulation in your attic. Also, the insulation level should be uniform across the entire attic—hills and valleys can create temperature variances that will affect the temperature in the space below.
