Importance of Attic Insultation
Depending on when your home was built will likely determine how much, if any, insulation you have in your attic. Attic insulation technology has improved significantly over the past several decades. Even if you have attic insulation, it may not be providing enough benefit when it comes to the energy efficiency. Attic insulation is measured in R-Value, which is the ability for insulation to resist heat flow. The higher the R-Value, the better performing it will be in your home. If you haven’t replaced your insulation in the past 10 years, there’s likely new attic insulation technology on the market that can help save you money, and keep you more comfortable at the same time.
North Metro Attic Insulation Services
Installing insulation used to be quite time consuming because it involved laying individual pieces of insulation between attic joists. Now, blown in insulation can be used in attics to greatly decrease the installation time. However, at Refuge Roofing, when we perform an attic insulation job, we don’t just stop at blowing in insulation. Instead, we also look for any gaps that could be causing additional drafts. We’ll seal these areas to ensure that you’re literally not throwing money away. Our job isn’t complete until your attic is as efficient as possible, which often means sealing up areas as well as examining any access doors to reduce air infiltration.
