Published on March 05, 2021

One of the best ways to increase the energy efficiency of your home and to decrease your utility expenses is by insulating your attic. With the rise of cost in utilities, attic insulation provides an excellent way to retain heat inside your home and is very cost-effective. The average cost to insulate an attic with blow-in insulation depends on a veriety of factors, but in many cases an attic insulation upgrade is incredibly cost-effective, by reducing the costs of your monthly utility bills and install attic insulation, Ecocomfort provides professional attic insulation services in Toronto, contact us today to help keep your house warm. 

Type and Material of Insulation 

Several types of insulations can be installed in the attic, all of which have different properties and costs. Spray insulation is one of the most expensive types of insulation you can install in your attic. Next, and probably the best attic insulation for your home, is blow-in insulation. It is one of the most common types of insulation installed in attics. They’re easier to install and still have a great R-value to help keep your house warm. The least energy-efficient insulation is fibreglass insulation. The type of insulation you install goes a long way in affecting the cost of attic insulation installation. 

Square Footage and Contractor Fees

The cost of attic insulation is directly proportional to the square footage of your attic. The bigger the attic and square footage, the more expensive it gets to install insulation. Contractor fees to install the insulation is also dependent on the type of attic and insulation being installed. Spray insulation can be very time-consuming whereas blown-in insulation can be relatively quickly done and last for a long time.

To get a better understanding of the cost of installing insulation in your attic maybe, find out the square footage of your attic. Most attics in Toronto have a square footage of approximately 500 square feet, give or take. As square footage is directly in line with the cost of insulation, this is a great way to gauge the cost of installation. 

Determine Your R-Value 

All insulation types have an R-value which corresponds directly to how efficient they are in retaining heat. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation is. This comes at a price as higher R-value insulation costs more as well. The type of insulation and R-value you require for your home is dependent on your needs. It is best to use higher R-value insulation for older homes that may have cracks, leaks, or less efficient building materials. Likewise, lower R-value insulation can be used in newer homes due to increased energy efficiency in modern homes. 

Blown-In Insulation has a high R-Value but maintains moderately priced. At EcoComfort Insulators, we specialize in blown-in attic insulation installation.
