Heating and cooling your house is expensive, especially in the Okanagan where summer temperatures soar and the thermostat frequently drops below freezing in the winter. Hot air rises, so your attic can be a significant source of both heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. Proper attic insulation can be one of the biggest ways to cut costs and reduce your energy bill.

Insulating your attic

When it comes to insulating your attic, blown-in insulation is the most common choice as it offers a thorough and efficient application that can get into the nooks and crannies between floor joists.

Though not as common these days, batt insulation is sometimes used between floor joists to help insulate your home. Not only will properly insulating your attic help to reduce your energy bills, it may also help to increase the lifespan of your existing HVAC system, which you will need during Kelowna’s hot summers.
