November is here, and wintry weather has blown in with gusto. This
week's tips cover ways to make the most of your home heating system.
Tip # 4: Insulate your attic
If you've managed to stop heat from escaping downstairs, you may still be letting it seep out through your roof. To make the most of energy saving efforts, consider checking insulation levels in your attic. According to the Alliance to Save Energy, households with less than 6 or 7 inches of insulation in the attic generally benefit from adding 6 to 10 additional inches. Energy Star recommends distributing insulation evenly, with no low spots out near the eaves.
