Home Attics/Roofs - Dumb vs. Smart - How to Build Correctly
Matt Risinger explains how to not only build more efficiently but also how to go about designing a well-built home with a conditioned attic space. So many attics have been built the same way for decades, but they aren't at all energy efficient and they don't promote good air quality. Attics are hotter than the rest of the house, so when the furnace tries to turn on, it is processing the hot air from the attic. Though the old way of constructing attics has worked for generations, why not do it right instead of just doing it the same? There's plenty to consider when it comes to developing a more efficient attic. For example, spray foam usage, dropped ceilings and ducts, shingle durability in a conditioned attic, and energy codes. Watch the full video to learn more.
