Why insulate your attic?
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, air loss in a home is one of the leading causes of excessive energy bills. Because heat rises, the air you’ve paid to heat your home sneaks through gaps created by dropped soffits and electrical boxes into your unsealed or poorly insulated attic, where it can easily escape your house. Your HVAC system is forced to work in overdrive to combat this loss of air, which raises your operating costs -- a process that constantly repeats itself. To achieve optimal energy efficiency, ensure your home is insulated from top to bottom with high-performance insulation.
Without proper insulation in your home, energy loss will occur and cost you more money. You can save on your annual heating and cooling bills by sealing air leaks and adding more effective insulation around your home. The best insulation, our spray foam, combined with air sealing will provide solid resistance to this phenomenon.
Why insulate your attic with spray foam?
Spray foam insulation expands up to 100 times its original volume upon application. Due to its expansion properties, spray foam is perfect for air sealing your home. Spray foam insulation has an R-value from 4.2 to 7 per inch. The level of R-value per inch varies based on whether open or closed-cell insulation is installed. This, essentially means that the overall resistance to air loss is non-existent. Spray foam insulation maintains these high R-values for the long term, providing consistent energy savings year-round.
Traditional insulation, like fiberglass, can often leave gaps or seams around oddly shaped areas, like electrical boxes or light fixtures. This can lead to the additional headache of increased energy bills in the future.
