Upgrading insulation throughout the attic is one of the most cost effective ways to enhance home energy efficiency. It’s also one of the best home improvements in terms of return-on-investment. Attic insulation upgrades will make a big difference throughout the year – with noticeable utility savings on winter heating and summer air conditioning. With a well-insulated attic, homeowners will potentially realize between 30% and 40% savings on their seasonal utility bills.
In older homes, attic insulation is usually below the current standards of the building code. In fact, some industry statistics show that many homes have less than half of the code-required attic insulation. Beyond anything else, this is a recipe for wasting energy, and wasting money around the year. Attic insulation upgrades will guarantee home comfort from season to season, and will guarantee lower utility bills. Best of all, the savings make the investment worthwhile.
In winter, poorly performing attic insulation allows for significant heat loss, which then requires the furnace to work overtime in order to keep the home comfortable. In summer, it’s similar but opposite – the outside heat infiltrates into the home, causing the air conditioning system to work overtime in order to maintain comfort. Providing professional attic insulation upgrades, the team at EcoComfort installs high quality materials that offer comfort and savings at one time.
At EcoComfort, there is only one type of insulation we recommend to best protect your attic: blown-in cellulose. With excellent coverage, high R-value, and superior density, blown-in cellulose insulation effectively blocks our air leaks and improves home air temperature.
Blown-in cellulose insulation is one of the most commonly used building material products. It’s been around for some 70 years, and has gained popularity because it works so well. The product itself is derived from the cellulose in plants, and is commonly manufactured by incorporating recycled paper. It’s considered eco-friendly, and many homeowners prefer it to other insulation products.
Blown-in cellulose compares very favorably with other types of insulation, and is very effective in augmenting the existing R-Value of any insulation that has been already installed. As long as the existing insulation is clean, dry, and uncontaminated, blown insulation can be used to “top up”.
Cellulose insulation is chemically treated to be fire resistant. The makeup of the product limits oxygen availability, and therefore prevents the spread of fire. In fact, cellulose insulation does particularly well in fire demonstration testing (up to 50% more resistant than other materials).
Blown-in cellulose is excellent for insulating “hard-to-reach” spaces. In the attic and roof cavity, where there are many limited access areas, blown-in cellulose provides very effective coverage. When professionally installed, the material fills cavities and spaces better than batt insulation.
Cost Effective Install
Because blown-in cellulose is a straightforward installation, it requires less time and manpower than other products. When professionally installed by an experienced team, blown-in cellulose is a very cost effective option, with lower installation costs than many other insulation products.
Long Term Benefits
Unlike other home renovations, insulation has long-term benefits. Homeowners benefit from years of improved energy efficiency, as well as cost savings on heating and air conditioning. Home insulation delivers a better return-on-investment than most other home improvements.
When properly installed, blown-in cellulose dampens sound from inside and outside the home. This is particularly beneficial when living spaces are close to the attic. For homeowners living in semi-detached units, or in townhomes, sound dampening is especially appreciated long term.
Clean and Non-Toxic
Blown-in cellulose insulation contains NO asbestos, NO formaldehyde, and NO toxic chemicals.
In manufacturing, the material is treated with boric acid (antiseptic and insecticide) and thus provides insect repellency and mold resistance. It’s an ideal installation for the attic and roof.
