The sun is always beaming and pounding on your roof during the hot summer days. Attic insulation is one of our most popular services that we provide. A properly well insulated attic can stop unwanted heat exchange. Here are some of the benefits when your attic is well insulated:
- In the summer, it reduces the heat from entering into your home and in the winter, it reduces the heat from rising out.
- Lowers the cost on your energy bills.
- Reduces up to 25% of heat loss.
- You can feel the difference and improvement in comfort.
We recommend at least an R-30 value in the attic. For much warmer or colder areas, we recommend an R-38 value. If need be, we can go higher in R value as some homes get much more hotter or colder than your average home. This may be due to the extreme climate where the property is located or the way the house is built. The thicker the insulation, the higher the R value and the more protection you will have. It is very important to replace the insulation in the attic if you have an older home. Most likely, the insulation has not been replaced for a very long time and over a period of time; the insulation loses its effectiveness. On top of all that, the old insulation may be contaminated with rodent feces and has settled down in R value.
