In Oakville and around the Golden Horseshoe, home insulation is an important consideration for homeowners. This is particularly relevant because of the weather extremes in the summer and winter. Oakville is typically humid for much of the year, which is why attic insulation is critical for maintaining indoor comfort. With the proper attic insulation, indoor humidity can be controlled.
Homeowners considering attic insulation in Oakville are usually focused on reducing energy use and thus reducing energy costs. But with quality insulation, there are other benefits. When the home is well sealed, well insulated, and well ventilated, indoor comfort is measurably enhanced during summer and winter. What’s important, however, is to have the work done professionally.
In Oakville and most of southern Ontario, attics are insulated with one product or another. The issue is more about insulation performance, because over the years insulation can deteriorate and underperform. It means that in summer hot humid air is entering the house, and in winter warm indoor air is escaping. Both dynamics cause heating/cooling equipment to work overtime.
When attic insulation is underperforming, the HVAC system (heating and cooling) will consume more energy in trying to provide indoor comfort from season to season. Annual energy costs will be unusually high, and there’s also far more wear and tear on the HVAC equipment. This is why a comprehensive approach to attic insulation is required, along with air sealing and air ventilation.
With home insulation, the best approach is the professional approach. At EcoComfort, highly experienced installers do it right the first time – with quality insulation materials and top-notch workmanship. With a focus on energy efficiency and indoor comfort, we specialize in blown-in cellulose. We also make sure that the attic is well sealed and ventilated.
There are a host of insulation products on the market today – and each with their own benefits and advantages. At EcoComfort, blown in products have proven to be effective and affordable, while providing long-term performance. We assess the attic and roof cavity, and recommend the best options for repairs, retrofits, and reinstallation of new insulation. It’s a complete approach.
Blown in cellulose is one of our preferred installations at EcoComfort. The product is made from plant cellulose and recycled paper, and is considered eco-friendly when it’s compared with other products. Blown in cellulose is a cost effective installation, making for a worthwhile long-term investment. We install the product very quickly, with minimal mess, and with noticeable results.
In the attic and roof, blown in cellulose is very effective for insulating irregular spots and cavities. Once the attic is properly air sealed, the cellulose product provides excellent coverage from end to end. More than that, blown in products can be used to insulate exterior walls, without causing damage to the walls. This is a superb option for enhancing thermal performance in older homes.
Beyond the performance benefits of blown in cellulose, there are additional advantages. To begin with, cellulose resists mold and mildew, something important in a space like the attic. It’s also not a friendly environment for insects or animals. And finally, it provides an enhanced level of energy efficiency that won’t cause the heating and cooling system to overwork in summer and winter.
In the majority of residential homes, the attic is “out-of-site” and therefore “out-of-mind”. It means that problems with attic insulation are hard to diagnose until there are noticeable signs and symptoms. When insulation is underperforming, homeowners will see the signs and should take notice. Then it’s time to have a professional assessment to determine the scope of issues.
