Proper insulation in your attic keeps your house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Inadequate attic insulation could be responsible for 25% of your home’s energy loss. The money you’ll save on your energy bills will quickly pay the bill for new insulation in your attic.
What Is Attic Insulation?Attics that are used as livable space are likely insulated with spray foam or fiberglass batting. Attics that are used primarily for storage are usually filled with blown-in insulation. For blown-in insulation, we make sure the attic has appropriate baffles to channel airflow, and we install them if necessary. Then we add insulation until we reach the correct R-value and depth. The R-value tells you how well the insulation material can keep heat from entering or leaving your home. Attic insulation offers the following benefits:
- Temperature preservation: The insulation keeps the warmth inside in the winter and the cool air inside in summer.
- Energy efficiency: Less temperature loss means less energy used.
- Health: A properly insulated attic is less likely to have mold or mildew growth.
