Attic

Priority

Poorly placed insulation not only means your heating and cooling systems have to work harder (which costs you more money for energy and shortens their service lives).

And in snowy climates, heat loss to a roof can lead to the formation of ice dams on your roof which can cause water damage inside your home.

Timing: 

September (every 3 years)


NOTE: The tasks and timings shown here for your Attic are based on a single-family home (owned), located in Massachusetts, United States, with priority set at ‘1 star' or higher, for all possible goals.
