Attic Insulation: Why Does It Matter?
Why is insulation so important? You are probably saying to yourself, “my house has the pink fluffy stuff in some spots of my attic…that should be enough, right?” This couldn’t be further from the truth! The same way that clothing acts as a barrier to keep your body warm during the winter, insulation protects your home to slow the flow of heat, in both the winter and the summer.
Having your home properly insulated will help improve the comfort level of your home, as well as reduce energy inefficiency, and save you money on your heating and cooling bills. Dr. Energy Saver's dealer in Northern Virginia, Comfenergy, specializes in energy-saving solutions to improve your home’s efficiency. They are trained professionals who will inspect your home’s energy systems and provide a customized plan for your specific needs.
Energy-saving solutions can lead to cost savings too. Properly insulated homes generally save energy dramatically within the first year. There are many insulation materials on the market today and Comfenergy uses quality materials that will measure their resistance to heat flow to ensure installation of the proper thickness of insulation for your home. Whatever type of insulation is right for your home, whether it’s spray foam, blown-in, fiberglass, cellulose, or injection foam insulation, an insulation specialist can make sure it’s installed correctly to ensure maximum energy savings and comfort.
Before installing insulation, the experts at Comfenergy will find the “voids” or air leakages in your home. Without air sealing first, insulation will not perform like it should. Injection foam insulation is specially formulated to insulate wall cavities and other enclosed spaces. It provides flow and fill characteristics, and can be used where there may not be insulation or where the existing insulation is not adequate for the space.
Upgrading your existing insulation in the attic is the most effective way to reduce your energy costs, since most of the energy in your home is lost through the attic. When homes are built, minimal insulation is installed. Just because your attic appears to be insulated, does not mean that it is properly insulated. A simple FREE home evaluation is all that you will need to begin saving energy and to stop sending your hard-earned money through the roof.
