Attic insulation is a great way to keep your home warm in the winter. Not only does it help to lock in heat, it also cuts your energy bill by up to 25% depending on your home. Having your home properly insulated also helps in the summer, when it can keep your home cool. Read on to learn about how attic insulation works and what Installed Services can do for your home.
Insulating your attic is quick and easy, especially with our help. We take each step of the insulation process seriously. First, we seal any air leaks you may have in your attic to ensure maximum insulation. Then, our experts insert vents under any existing insulation, which allows the air to move properly and removes any moisture that may accumulate. These allow you to get the most protection out of your new insulation. Finally, we either add the batts where necessary or blow or spray the new insulation in. We make sure you have an airtight seal so save you the most on your energy bills for years to come.
The materials used in attic insulation can vary. Depending on your needs, loose fill, batts or sprayed form will be right for your attic. Loose fill, which is blown into place with a machine, is usually made up of fiberglass, cellulose or mineral wool. This is one of the most popular insulation materials for attics because of its ability to entirely fill spaces without missing any spots.
Unlike loose fill, batts are packaged in rolls and are usually made of fiberglass or cotton. Sometimes, batts can also be made of cellulose or mineral wool, but this is less common.
Sprayed foam is a great insulation option for those with small spaces to ensure maximum insulation. The foam can be either open cell or closed cell. Both types of foam have their advantages depending on your home, so talk with an expert to help you make the right decision.
Each of these options has their own advantages, and one of our experts can help you choose the best option for you.
