It will also help keep the heat in during the winter months and the cool in during the summer months. In the course of a year you will see how these savings can add up.

If you have an uneven temperature in your home, it may be due to poor insulation in the attic. Heat rises, so if you notice that one room of the house is cooler than the others, it could be a sign of poor insulation in the attic over that area of the house. This would result in heat loss.
