What Benefits Will Proper Attic Insulation Give Me?
Published on December 25, 2020
Proper attic insulation is a priority in our region, particularly with a variety of weather and temperatures that fluctuate throughout the course of the year. For homeowners upgrading their attic insulation in Mississauga, a good installation will provide immediate benefits.
High-quality insulation provides enhanced indoor comfort, reduced energy consumption, and lower utility costs. And with a product like blown in insulation, the benefits are noticeable around the year. What’s important, to be sure, is to do all the work professionally.
When attic insulation isn’t working properly, the heating and cooling system has to work overtime to provide indoor comfort. Poor attic insulation, along with poor air sealing, is what contributes to uneven temperatures throughout the home, and the high cost of utilities.
The Benefits and Advantages of Quality Blown In Insulation
At EcoComfort Insulation & Contracting, blown in cellulose has become one of our preferred insulation products. It’s made primarily from plant cellulose and is considered an eco-friendly choice, which satisfies many homeowners’ demands.
Blown in cellulose is very cost-effective as an installation, and therefore is a worthwhile investment. For the roof cavity and attic, blown in cellulose is ideal when insulating those irregular spaces found throughout.
When the attic is properly air sealed, the blown in product provides an excellent thermal blanket. It’s also a product that can be used to insulate exterior walls, especially for thermal upgrades in older, poorly insulated homes.
Blown in cellulose has additional benefits – the material resists mold and mildew – it’s not a welcome environment for insects or rodents – and it has fire-resistant properties. Overall, it’s an effective and cost worthy installation.
The Additional Benefits of Air Sealing and Air Ventilation
While a properly insulated attic provides thermal performance around the year, both air sealing and air ventilation are essential for a complete “system”. When everything is working together, you will see less air leakage, better hold on your air moisture and your overall air quality will improve.
In many residential homes, especially older homes, quality insulation, air sealing, and air ventilation will dramatically improve home comfort and energy efficiency. With quality blown-in cellulose, the annual energy savings can actually “pay down” the cost of these upgrades.
