How to Keep The Heat In Before Temperatures Drop
Published on October 12, 2020
As temperatures begin to drop at this time of year, homeowners tend to consider upgrading their attic insulation in Toronto. It’s all for good reason, mainly because heating bills are starting to climb during the colder months of fall. Consequently, there’s more focus on keeping costs down while still maintaining a good level of indoor comfort.
In the fall and winter, it’s not uncommon for homeowners to notice “cold spots” in different parts of the home – this is a sure signal that cold air is leaking into the home somewhere – and it often means that the installed attic insulation isn’t performing at peak. The good news is that insulation upgrades can make a big difference season to season.
Installing Attic Insulation in Toronto
Unlike other upgrades in the home, attic insulation is one of the more cost effective options, providing excellent return-on-investment over the long term. As well as enhancing indoor comfort in winter, a properly insulated home will also allow for substantial savings on seasonal heating bills.
When attic insulation is upgraded professionally, home comfort is measurably enhanced in winter and in summer. Upgraded insulation also allows the HVAC system to operate in better balance. This is the key to improved energy efficiency, reduced energy consumption, and dollar savings.
Product Options for Attic Insulation
At EcoComfort Insulation & Contracting, we recommend blown-in cellulose when insulating the attic space. A professional install provides excellent coverage, satisfactory R-Values, and long-lasting results. With excellent coverage, blown-in cellulose effectively blocks air leakage.
Blown-in cellulose is one of the more common options for insulating the attic. It’s made from plant cellulose and often incorporates recycled paper content. The product is considered eco-friendly, and is therefore a preferred option for homeowners looking for an alternative to other products.
