Interior Insulation Installation Services Fort Saskatchewan AB
Fort Saskatchewan/Edmonton Renovation Contractor
Proper attic insulation serves to prevent heat loss in the winter and preserve cool air in the summer. If you believe your home is leaking money through a drafty or unsealed attic, carry an energy inspection or use a thermal camera to find cool spots up there. Although it’s possible to fill those holes, based on the span of your insulation, you might be better off substituting your attic insulation completely rather than filling in the gaps.
To start, know what R-value is recommended for your home based on your area. You can get this data from the Department of Energy. If you aren’t familiar with R-value, it’s essentially an insulating material’s resistance to heat flow, estimated by its thermal resistance or R-value. The greater the R-value, the more effective an insulating material is. Your home’s R-value score will lead you toward the kind of insulation you require.
At Fort Sask Reno, we will present you with specialist direction on what your attic needs. A great attic needs a minimum of R-50 value insulation.
We use cellulose as our primary blown-in attic insulator because it has numerous benefits, such as:
- A high-density rate and R-Value (almost 1/3 higher than fiberglass)
- Lower health risk as compared to fiberglass (through inhalation)
- Environment friendly (made of recycled paper and cardboard)
- It fills all of the tiny crevices in the attic to secure a proper air seal.
