Is the Insulation Adequate?

Proper attic insulation keeps your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Ask the staff at your local home improvement center how much insulation is recommended in your area, then check your attic insulation to make sure it's adequate.

Some homes benefit from additional wall insulation. Home improvement center staff will explain types of insulation that can be added to existing walls.
