Attic Insulation Services
Adding attic insulation to your home has a number of benefits that could be useful in the long run. Attic insulation can easily help you save energy in your home throughout the year and reduce the heating and cooling energy you use elsewhere.
While attics serve a number of purposes, they could serve many more if insulated. While most of us keep our old boxes in the attic for extra storage, adding some insulation to your attic can turn it into a livable room in your home.
Not only that, but it reduces the energy used around your home, helping to keep the place cool and warm when needed. Insulating the attic also ensures temperatures are more regulated, so you don’t have to worry about your storage items deteriorating due to excessive heat. On top of all this, attic insulations are relatively low-cost and require little to no maintenance after installation!
As one of the eco-friendly and sustainable options, cellulose insulation is created with recycled materials and provides a significant amount fire resistance. Cellulose helps control the temperatures throughout the home a bit better, along with those from outside. While some attics are prone to high temperatures in the Summers and freezing temperatures in the Winters, Cellulose helps regulate them evenly to provide comfort.
With Cellulose insulation, you likely won’t feel the same heat wave or freezing sensation as you might with other materials. Cellulose insulation ranges in costs but can be more affordable in the long run for homeowners, and is often one that we recommend most to our clients looking to insulate their attics.
Spray insulation is one of the more expensive options, but for good reason. While it’s relatively easily to install or apply, it comes in levels of thickness and hardness for extended durability.
The spray insulation also helps to adequately control air that passes through the attic, so again, you won’t feel the sudden heatwaves and freezing temperatures that you might with other materials. Spray insulation sticks to your attic’s walls and dries with a thickness that can’t easily be penetrated by much else, so you know you’ll be getting a lasting product that withstands the test of time, and the seasons.
Fiberglass is a common material that doesn’t require much installation per se, but rather meticulous laying where needed. It looks similar to foam padding and can virtually be laid anywhere that’s a surface. However, if you decide that fiberglass is the best option for you, it should always be tested beforehand to ensure that there’s no allergies, as it sometimes can cause those with sensitive allergies to flare up.
Furthermore, it’s easily removable if you decide to opt for another insulation material in the future and is somewhat soundproof as well, providing a padded barrier in the attic. While it’s not our number one pick, it gets the job done and is suited for those on a tight budget.
