Insulation Is all about the “R-Value”!
R-Value is the common standard which all insulation products are measured by. R-value measures resistance to heat flow; the higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. R-value is usually determined by the thickness of the insulation. Blown-in insulation can be as thick as you want to achieve any desired R-value.
The many benefits of Blown-In Attic Insulation:
- Higher performance insulating power means real savings on energy costs
- Makes your home more comfortable all year round
- Stops air and moisture infiltration which can reduce mold and mildew
- Keeps mold, pollen and pollutants from passing through your attic and into your home
Do you get ice dams on your home during the winter? Preventing hazardous ice dams can be as simple as adding the right attic insulation and ventilation.
Attic Ventilation Installation Ensures Proper Air Flow & Prevents Ice Dams
Allowing outside air to enter through attic vents is the key to a durable and energy-efficient home.
It may seem counter-productive to purposely allow cold air to enter your attic after you have already added insulation for warmth, but this combination is vital towards maintaining a balanced indoor air environment.
In the winter, allowing a natural flow of outdoor air to ventilate the attic helps keep the air above the attic insulation cold, which reduces the risk of roof snow melt and ice dam formation. This works alongside insulation and air sealing to keep your attic cold in the winter by blocking warm and moist air from below. In the summer, proper attic ventilation allows hot air to escape from the attic, thereby protecting roof shingle integrity and removing moisture buildup. The insulation resists heat transfer into your home, helping you keep your air conditioning costs under control.
These Attic Ventilation Options Ensure Proper Air Flow:
- Attic Baffles Installation (for proper air flow from soffit vents)
- Roof Vents or Ridge Vents Installation
- Soffit Vents Installation/Replacement
