Attic insulation is one of the best investments that a new homeowner can make once they purchase a home. The biggest expense that people have when owning a home is on heating and cooling to their comfort level. Due to the fact that hot air raises the most important area of concern one thinking about energy loss is the attic floor. If the home does not have a proper thermal and pressure boundary the homeowner will be spending much more than they need on heating and cooling. For more information on thermal and pressure boundaries give us a call at (888) 280-7275.
American hybrid homes through with one thought in mind, predefined what it means to be green and what it means to be energy-efficient. We believe that green energy should not only encompass the creation aspect of energy, but it should also refer to the preservation of energy. Every single day homeowners either cool or seek their home defending on their comfort preferences. We believe that if we can help reduce how much fuel people spend on heating and cooling their home we will make equal contribution to the growing issue of our generation. If we can reduce homeowners energy use by 20 to 30% and repeat that over thousands of homes the impact that we will make will be tremendous.
Attic insulation can come in many different forms and can be applied in many different ways. In the older days people used to use vermiculite insulation but recent studies show that it can be harmful and may contain asbestos. In today’s day some of the most popular installation is fiberglass, spray foam, and blown cellulose insulation. All of these have different methods of application and are more useful in different types of homes. For instance, new construction prefers fiberglass and spray foam insulation where old home projects that need additional insulation choose cellulose.
Our company chooses to use blown cellulose due to the fact that it has higher R-Value to fiberglass and also it is made out of recycled materials. Some of the other benefits of cellulose are that it is fire retardant and noise resistant. When doing every project we begin and end with energy audits. The purpose of that is to first show the homeowner how their home performs under its current condition versus happened performs once our work is complete. This way we are able to factually show the homeowner the impact that we made on their home and we can predict the savings that they will see.
Proper attic insulation can pay for itself within 3 to 5 years upon its installation in the homeowners will enjoy a 15 to 25% return on their investment. Not only is this beneficial to your wallets but it also makes your home more comfortable to live in. All of the rooms will have equal temperature and the windows and doors will not be as drafty. Our services also help homeowners to reduce any issues that they might have with ice damming on their gutters.
