When an attic is well insulated, winter heating and summer cooling can’t leak out through the roof. For homeowners planning attic insulation upgrades, the results will be apparent almost immediately – better energy efficiency, reduced utility costs, and improved indoor comfort.
Before installing insulation in the attic, professional attic insulation services should include a proper attic inspection. A good inspection will allow for an accurate assessment of insulation performance. It’s also an excellent time to identify potential problems in the attic and roof cavity.
By any measure, upgrading the insulation in an attic will make a noticeable difference. Home energy efficiency is much improved, indoor comfort is enhanced, and utility bills are reduced around the year. A well-insulated attic can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs.
During winter, poorly performing attic insulation allows the home’s indoor heating to leak right through the roof. This type of heat loss makes the furnace work overtime to keep the home warm. In summer, cool air similarly escapes through the roof, and the AC unit must work overtime, so the house remains cool. It's the right time for professional attic insulation services.
At EcoComfort Insulation and Contracting, we often suggest blown-in cellulose for the attic. This insulation product ensures appropriate R-Values and provides good coverage throughout the attic. Once the attic is appropriately air-sealed, blown-in cellulose will block potential air leaks and effectively insulate the home. Blown-in cellulose insulation is both effective and cost-efficient.
Before doing any attic insulation upgrades, homeowners would do well to arrange for a thorough inspection of the attic space. It's an ideal first step to uncover potential problems such as damaged insulation, air leakage, poor ventilation, and even structural defects.
A thorough inspection will address problem areas before they become severe and costly. The fact is, most attics are concealed - so problem areas tend to advance without being noticed. A good inspection will uncover those problem areas and present appropriate solutions.
It’s also an excellent opportunity to inspect the attic and roof when selling or buying a home. The inspection provides an accurate assessment of the house while averting the possibility of any undesirable surprises. Here again, insulation, air leaks, and ventilation are each assessed.
