The Importance Of Attic Insulation Baffles


A home's attic must be properly insulated in order to keep the temperature in the home consistent. Attic insulation baffles are important when trying to regulate the temperature in your home. You want to stay warm and toasty during the cold winter months and enjoy the summer months in cool comfort when the heat of summer sets in. Because heat rises, valuable heat can escape if the attic is lacking the right insulation. On the other hand, heat can become trapped in the attic during the summer and reduce the cooling system's efficiency.

There are several types of insulation materials to choose from, including styrofoam, reflective, fireproof, ceramic, and fiberglass. Attic insulation baffles serve to hold the chosen insulator in place and allow for the flow of air through the soffit vents in the roof to the gable. Baffles are especially important in applications where the chosen insulation butts up to the roof sheathing or rafters. Attic insulation baffles are used to prevent the free flow of air from being obstructed.
