Before Winter begins, check out the insulation in your attic using the helpful video from Energystar.gov above. The best indication that your house need upgraded insulation is to look at your roof after a heavy snow fall. If parts of your roof are exposed, as opposed to being covered in snow, this can be an indication of heat loss.

Learn how to measure insulation in your attic; proper attic insulation in your home will save money, save energy, make your home more comfortable, and reduce the emissions that contribute to climate change. Get more attic insulation tips at http://www.energystar.gov/ruleyourattic.
The first step is to determine if your attic has proper insulation R-value for where you live; start by measuring your attic insulation levels — in general, if you can see your joists, you need more insulation. With the right information and a quick look around your attic you’ll be able to make energy efficient improvements that help improve the energy efficiency of your home. Adding insulation to the attic is generally a moderately difficult do it yourself (DIY) project, but the benefits can be substantial.
Here are the steps for measuring your attic insulation level:
1. Insert a ruler or a yardstick into your insulation, record the depth
2. If the insulation is uneven across the attic, take multiple measurements and average them
3. Take a photo of your attic insulation levels for your records and we’d love for you to share them with us at on social media (see below for links)
