Rule Your Attic! (and save on energy costs)
Temperatures are dropping and it’s time to turn on the heat in your home. Your real concern is likely the cost and use of energy. One of the best things a homeowner can do is make sure your attic is properly insulated. Take a peek up there. If you can see your ceiling joists, you likely need to add insulation.
You can also measure the insulation itself. Make sure to take some safety precautions in shallow attic spaces. You want to make sure to walk on the joists or add boards across them to avoid damaging your ceiling or falling through. You may need a flashlight, but also some gloves, glasses and a face mask to protect you from dust and particles in the air of your attic. Use the graphic, or see these tips for DIY Checks and Inspection to see what your levels should be. In this region of the midwest, it is recommended for your attic to be at the R-49 Level.
