The Value of an Energy Efficient Home In Toronto
Published on July 09, 2021
Home energy efficiency is highly advertised these days and consistently in the news. From energy saving windows and high-tech furnaces to high-quality attic insulation, the benefits are far-reaching. Not surprisingly, upgrading your home insulation in Toronto is a win-win opportunity – improving energy efficiency, enhancing home comfort, and saving on utility costs year after year.
For attic insulation in Toronto, homeowners can count on EcoComfort Insulation & Contracting for high-quality products and superior installations. When upgrading attic insulation, for example, we recommend blown cellulose. With a professional installation, this material provides high R-Values. It effectively blocks air leakage while insulating the spaces, gaps and cracks in the attic.
Upgrading Attic Insulation in Toronto
Because attic insulation in Toronto is typically out of sight in most homes, it’s difficult for homeowners to notice when insulation starts to deteriorate. And because every home is different, performance deterioration has different causes. In some cases, a substandard installation could allow for air leakage. In other cases of decreased insulation performance it’s possible that animals may have nested in the attic. Additionally, poor insulation performance can be attributed to water leakage or excessive moisture has compromised the insulation material. Whatever the case, these are all signs that professional insulation upgrades are required.
Installing Quality Blown Cellulose
Blown in cellulose is highly recommended for upgrades to the attic and roof cavity. It’s made with plant cellulose and combines recycled paper in the product composition. Cellulose is known as eco-friendly and, therefore, an attractive product option for home insulation in Toronto. This product is specially treated to be both fire-resistant and mold resistant, so it's an ideal installation in a space like an attic. The important thing is to avoid a DIY installation and opt for professional work that ensures long-term results.
When replacing (or adding) insulation in the attic or walls, the most cost-effective option is blown-in insulation. Average costs are more attractive than other products (not including air sealing costs).
Enhanced Indoor Comfort
Upgrading attic insulation will enhance indoor comfort almost immediately. The improved results will be noticeable throughout winter and summer. Improved R-Values also improves energy efficiency.
Fast, Easy, Simple Install
Compared with other more involved installations, blown cellulose is a fast and easy operation. With the proper air sealing and ventilation, the attic space is clean, dry, and insulated to the maximum.
Extra Disaster Protection
In the event of a severe storm or blackout, homes that are well insulated and more energy-efficient tend to be more comfortable simply because the indoor heating and cooling are far better retained.
An Eco-Friendly Product
Blown cellulose has a very high content of recycled materials, making it an eco-friendly option compared to other products. It's also treated to be flame resistant, mold resistant, and pest resistant.
