Our Attic Insulation Process

3. Job Completion

At the conclusion of the job, we will walk you through everything that we are doing in your attic so you are aware of what’s going on. In addition, an experienced specialist will ensure you’re satisfied with the project after it’s completed.

Why Insulate Your Attic

As summer approaches, the sun’s radiant energy heats up the roof shingles. Through conduction, the heat is then transferred to the attic.

Attics become stuffy and hot once they become stuffy and hot. That heat then spreads down into your house. The entire house becomes hot. In the winter, the opposite happens. Heat dissipated from your attic’s walls as a result of the heaters.

Insulation spray foam is used to address the issue. Radiant heat is reflected by spray foam insulation, rather than absorbed by the attic. This means radiant heat from the sun can’t pass through the walls and roof of your attic easily.

It allows you to have better air conditioning in your attic and throughout your home. Winterized homes benefit from spray foam insulation because heat generated from inside is reflected back from the attic. Insulation keeps you warm during the winter.

Choosing the right materials is an important step. Following that, we will discuss how much attic insulation is needed for your Morgan City home.

Benefits of Attic Insulation

Energy Bill Savings

It has been estimated that proper attic insulation can reduce heating costs by 10 to 50 percent. Among the most effective ways to save on energy costs, many homeowners choose to insulate their attics.

Increases your home’s comfort

Addition of insulation is often done for comfort reasons. Homes that are under-insulated are more susceptible to temperature swings. Heating occurs naturally from cold to hot. Heat displacement can make your rooms hot/cold according to the outside temperature.

Upper-floor bedrooms are particularly susceptible to temperature fluctuations outside. A well-insulated attic can help keep these rooms at a comfortable temperature at night and in the early morning when temperatures are at their lowest.

Protects the Environment

The first benefit was probably enough for homeowners who are more money-conscious. Homeowners motivated by environmental concerns will also be happy. You may be able to save the most energy on your home by insulating and air sealing your attic. Keeping your home energy efficient means power plants won’t have to make as much energy, meaning you won’t have to consume as much energy!

Indoor Air Quality

Did you know that your home’s indoor air quality is directly affected by the attic insulation in your attic?

A poorly sealed attic space and inadequate insulation can allow pollutants to enter your home. Having an insulated attic helps prevent these pollutants from accumulating inside your home, which makes breathing easier and provides cleaner air for your family. Your current insulation may contain pollutants that can also be removed by installing new insulation.

Protects your Home’s Structure

Physical damage to your home can be prevented by insulating your attic space. Moisture cannot seep into and erode your walls and framing thanks to spray foam being a vapor barrier. If you air seal and insulate your home, you can save yourself from a lot of headaches in the future. It could be a sign of insulation problems if your attic is humid or condensation is present.

Protects your heating and cooling equipment

The equipment you use to heat and cool your home can be one of the most expensive purchases you make. It may cost up to $6,000 for your family to buy a modern sealed combustion furnace.

It is important to keep your attic insulated in order to reduce the likelihood of your heating and cooling equipment running frequently. If your home is able to retain its internal temperature your HVAC system will be required to run less often and put forth less effort to heat or cool your home. Under-insulated attics will require you to run your heating and air conditioning equipment more often to maintain a comfortable home temperature, causing significant wear and tear on your equipment.

How much Attic Insulation Is Necessary

Knowing the dimensions of the attic will help you determine how much insulation you will need. The square footage of the attic can be determined by measuring the length and width of the attic and multiplying them. In order to arrive at an accurate estimate, we will complete this during your attic inspection. This can also be done in advance of our visit.

In order to provide better insulation during the winter and summer, attic insulation should have a high R-value. How do you determine the R-value of insulation? Thermal resistance is measured by the R-value. In general, the higher the R-value of an insulating material, the more effective it is.

The R-value varies depending on the density of the insulating material, its type, and its thickness. In addition to the accumulation of moisture, the age of the insulation, the way it is installed, and whether it covers a wall or a ceiling, many different factors can affect its R-value.

Additional Insulation Services

It may not be enough for you to only insulate your attic. Many older homes were built prior to insulation requirements or less intensive insulation regulations. That means other parts of your home can be transferring heat without your knowledge. Here are some of our additional insulation services that will positively impact your energy consumption, home comfort, and home value.

In comparison with other parts of your home or building, your attic is more exposed to the outside elements. Insulation is sometimes overlooked. 

As a result of the summer heat, your home’s roof shingles will be baked, transferring the heat into your attic. That hot air can then travel throughout your home, causing an increase in internal temperature. When your house becomes hotter as a result, your air conditioning bill will rise. Attic insulation maintains your home’s temperature better and will reduce your energy bills over time.

Crawl Space Insulation Draco's Spray Foam

Crawl spaces, like attics and external walls, are closer to the outside elements than other parts of your home of the home. As a result, they are more likely to experience condensation and hot air.
