Energy Savings

With escalating energy costs, homeowners are always looking for ways to reduce their energy bills. One way you can find energy savings is through the insulation of your attic. Nearly 50% of homes are not properly insulated; when your attic lacks the proper amount of insulation, your heating and cooling can escape.

Heat rises, causing it to escape to your ceiling and up to your attic every time your furnace kicks on. This causes your furnace and air conditioner to work harder than they need to. The end result is a high energy cost and the premature wearing out of your furnace and / or air conditioning unit. Properly insulating your attic can prevent this energy loss.

When it comes to energy loss, people often probably blame windows as the culprit. However, insulating your attic will save you more on your utilities than replacing your windows will. And, you can insulate your attic for about one third the cost of new windows. For the proper installation of attic insulation, talk to our specialists today.

Attic Insulation Materials

Picture of AttiCat pantherBefore you have your attic insulated, make sure you understand the difference in the materials that can be used. The two most common types of attic insulation materials are cellulose insulation, and fiber glass insulation. Both types are usually blown in with an insulation machine and a hose to transfer the material to the attic. Cellulose insulation is made of ground up newspaper that has been chemically treated, while fiber glass insulation is made of recycled glass. If you need help deciding on the best insulation material for your home, don’t hesitate to call us to talk to our specialists.

During the insulation process, we also inspect the baffles in your attic to make sure they are properly installed. Sometimes no baffles exist or some are missing. We have also found that some were not installed properly. Baffles not being set in place can cause your soffit vents to be covered with insulation. If your soffit vents are covered with insulation, your roof will not be vented properly, and this can cause your roof decking to warp (because of excessive heat and moisture). This will cause your roof to fail prematurely. We take the entire process of attic insulation seriously because it is an important component in protecting your roof and home.
