Have you been paying more every month for your home’s heating and cooling? Is it increasingly difficult to regulate the temperature in your home?
If so, it might be time you turn your attention to your home's attic insulation.
When insulation isn’t performing, there are specific signs and symptoms, sometimes very obvious to a homeowner others may seem unrelated.
Pay attention to these indicators:
If you notice any combination of these signs in your home, there could be a problem with your attic insulation. Some common causes of attic insulation problems include old insulation, inadequate insulation, water damage or wet insulation, or pest infestations. To be sure, it’s a good idea to get an expert attic inspection in Burlington. The team at EcoComfort provides comprehensive inspections that diagnose the source of your insulation problems and offers fitting and affordable solutions.
Attic insulation is typically hidden away in a residential home, so its importance goes unnoticed and often underappreciated. The fact is, quality insulation keeps our homes comfortably warm in the winter and cool in the summer. When insulation is underperforming, both home comfort and energy efficiency are compromised – and that means that retrofits and upgrades are required.
The key to assessing insulation performance is to properly inspect the attic. For an attic inspection in Burlington, homeowners will benefit most when they hire a professional. This is the best way to assess the entire “system” in the attic – including the installed insulation materials, the existing ventilation system, and the presence of any air leaks. It’s the first step before any upgrading.
Professionals recommend a regular attic inspection at least once a year (and even twice). Since the attic and roof cavity are out of sight for most homeowners, this is the best way to diagnose problems that may be developing without being noticed. Early diagnosis means that issues can be resolved before they worsen. All of this should be done before installing new insulation.
In Burlington, EcoComfort Insulation & Contracting offers a full-service approach for improving insulation performance in the attic. In addition to inspecting the attic, we provide attic insulation removal (when required) and attic insulation upgrades that may include air sealing and attic ventilation. Upgrading the overall “system” is the preferred way to improving overall performance.
When it comes to attic insulation, blown-in cellulose insulation in Burlington provides an excellent return on investment. It’s a cost-effective install that offers satisfactory R-Values and is “eco-friendly” at the same time. In the attic, blown cellulose effectively insulates all of the awkward spaces found throughout.
In addition to the performance benefits, blown cellulose is resistant to mold, insects, and rodents – all features that are important in an attic. When professionally installed, energy efficiency is dramatically improved, resulting in substantial dollar savings on heating and air conditioning.
