Wilderness Construction Shares Signs of Inadequate Attic Insulation

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- Are you trading out your summer shorts for fall sweaters?

Looking forward to all the fall festivities to behold?

While you may already be focused on scheduling visits to apple orchards and pumpkin patches, it's important to remember that your home also needs to be prepped for the changing of Michigan's seasons.

Make sure your attic is prepared for colder weather by reviewing these signs!

Signs of Inadequate Attic Insulation
To determine whether your attic insulation is sufficient, you need to recognize the signs of inadequate insulation.

High energy bills: An increase in heating bills, especially during the winter, indicates your home is losing heat due to insufficient insulation.
●  Ice dams: The formation of ice dams along the eaves of your roof is a clear indication of poor attic insulation. Ice dams occur when heat escaping from the attic melts snow on the roof, which then refreezes at the eaves, potentially causing damage.

Drafts and cold spots: If you feel drafts or encounter cold spots in your home, especially near the ceiling or walls, it's a sign that warm air is escaping through gaps in your attic insulation.
