There are many building components in a home that are hidden behind drywall or just out of sight.

You could just dial down the thermostat and wear yet another sweater to cut costs, but investing in the right home improvements can go a lot further to cut expenses and to improve your day-to-day comfort. One of the places in your home where a little bit of attention can make a big difference in your comfort — and heating bill — is the attic. According to the Department of Energy, properly insulating the attic can save 10 to 50 percent on a typical heating bill.

Additionally, having a structural engineer evaluate the size of the rafters is also important. Many older homes in the D.C. area have rafters that may be undersized compared with current code requirements. If the rafters are split or appear to be sagging, they may need to be strengthened before proceeding further with insulation.
