Benefits of Adequate Attic Insulation
- Reduced Heating and Cooling costs
- Prolong the life of your roof
- Keeps your house cozy
- Prolong the life of you heating and cooling system
The Department of Energy estimates that heating and cooling alone account for 50 to 70% of energy usage. Rooms that are slow to cool in the summer and slow to heat in the winter most likely have inadequate insulation.
90% of homes are insufficiently insulated
We utilize best in market Owens Corning insulation on all of our jobs.
Blown-In Insulation Benefits
- Blown-in insulation naturally adapts to all wiring, ductwork, and other obstacles in the attic.
- Owens Corning insulation will not settle and will keep its energy-saving properties over time
- Blown-in Insulation will cover every inch of your attic, reducing leakage.
- Blown-in Insulation is very effective at controlling moisture
- Blown-in insulation is low dust and non-corrosive.
Hot Attics Waste Energy
Heated air flows from warmer areas into cooler ones, until there is no longer a temperature difference. Insulation will slow down the rate at which the heat from the attic will flow into the living areas in your home. The insulation also reduces heat buildup in the attic. Radiant barriers can also help with reducing heat gain.
Proper Insulation Slows Energy Loss
Whenever there is a temperature difference, the heat will move towards cooler areas. Properly insulating your house serves a buffer between the hot air and the cooler air in the living areas
Insulations’ resistance to heat flow is rated in terms of its thermal resistance (R-Value). The higher the R-Value, the better the thermal resistance. Factors that affect the R-Value are material, thickness, and density. You can increase your home’s R-value by adding insulation. The amount of insulation/R-Value that a home needs is dependent on the climate.
