Attic insulation can improve tenant comfort, reduce turnover for landlords

One of the most cost-effective improvements to a property can be attic insulation. In cold weather, a large percentage of the home’s heat loss occurs through the attic. In summer, the attic is one of the greatest sources of heat gain.

In addition to providing year round energy savings, a well-insulated attic can improve tenant comfort and reduce turnover. Taking steps to increase tenant comfort is an important preventative step in operational planning.

Energy Trust offers a variety of incentives for insulation retrofits for multifamily properties including for attic, underfloor, flat roof, wall, knee wall and rim joist insulation. Projects must meet eligibility requirements to qualify.
