Our attic insulation installers are true professionals. Before the work even begins, our trained technicians will thoroughly evaluate your home. We start by inspecting existing insulation, testing ventilation systems, and assessing your home’s energy consumption and expenditure before tailoring the perfect attic insulation plan for your home. We customize the insulation installation to the needs of your home and make sure you get the most comfort and savings for your money.
Types of Insulation
Insulation is designed to maintain a stable interior temperature regardless of the outdoor weather. There are four main categories for insulation.
The type you choose depends on these factors:
>. The square footage of the area
>. The type of space
>. The effects of your local climate
>. Your budget
>. Your home’s current R-value
The basic premise is that heat flows from the hot areas to the cold areas due to thermal physics. That means that when its warm inside in the winter, your heat is trying to move through the insulation barriers, cracks, and crannies of your home, and into the cold spaces in your walls, attic, basement or crawl space.
The Basics of Insulation
The attic is one of the most significant sources of energy loss in your home, so it’s important that it’s properly insulated. Whether it’s unfinished or used as extra living space, attic insulation installers offers much potential for energy savings. Insulating the attic can help:
>. Reduce your utility bills and maximize the energy efficiency of your home
>. Make your home a more comfortable space
>. Improve the efficiency of your air conditioner
>. Reduce noises on different levels inside (especially useful if your attic is used as a living space)
>. Contribute to a healthier environment inside your home
In the summer its moving the opposite direction. Heat is trying to get into your house, moving into the cool areas of your home from outside through the roof, walls, and windows of your home. Insulation serves to slow down that movement of heat and works to retain the heat inside your home during the winter while keeping the heat out during the summer.
The effectiveness of insulation is measured by its resistance to heat flow, which is also known as the R-value. Having proper insulation means that your HVAC unit will have to work less to keep your home heated or cooled. That translates into less electricity consumption and lowers your monthly utility bills. It also makes your house a lot more comfortable.
HOW Attic Insulation Installers WORKS
Basically, temperature changes within your home happen naturally when in the winter heat escapes the living areas of a home to cooler spaces such as attics, basements, and attached garages. During the summer, the outside heat will make its way indoors to your home’s interior. Your home’s heating and cooling system work to maintain a consistent temperature based on your thermostat settings.
Attic insulation works to combat this natural occurrence by limiting air movement and is an effective insulator. Insulation is rated by thermal resistance known as R-Value. The greater the R-Value the greater the insulating value. R-value requirements vary by region with colder climates requiring thicker insulation levels.
Attics are the quickest and easiest way to save energy and improve the comfort of your home. Our products can be blown over most pre-existing insulation such as fibreglass or rock wool loose-fill or batt insulation (to ensure you are not re-insulating over insulation with known or suspected health risks, such as asbestos or vermiculite, it is recommended you consult with a building or insulation specialist).
Properly installed attic insulation is a vital component of any roofing system. Attics that are properly insulated will prevent common roof problems such as ice dams, condensation, and mold growth in the attic. Attic inspections performed by our staff often reveal deficiencies in the roof system due to inadequate amounts of insulation or improperly installed insulation.
