Coincidentally, the same goes for your house. You lose about 10 percent of the heat in your house out your roof.
Now, ten percent doesn’t sound like a lot, but let’s put that number in perspective.
When you’re standing outside hatless on a cold day, where do you start to feel it first? Maybe your ears and your nose and the rest of your head? Standing there shivering, it doesn’t feel like you’re losing only ten percent of your body heat out your head—especially when your ears are numb and your nose has frozen over.
The same principal applies to your house.
Roofs are often the least energy efficient part of a building. They can leak a lot of air. And if you’re up in your (uninsulated) attic on a cold blustery day, you can literally feel the energy seeping out of the room. Suddenly that ten percent heat loss feels like a whole lot more.
So why lose ten percent of the heat in your house out your roof when you can lose zero?
Insulation in your attic or roofline can help plug the holes, stop air leakage, and get you close to zero.
Now, we can’t make you put a hat on your head, but we can help you put insulation in your attic or roofline.
