Your Home’s Comfort and Energy Efficiency Depends On It

Attic insulation is chosen based on your overall goals. It is important to check on the status over your attic space since several issues at your home can be residing in the attic. Did you know that the insulation in your attic affects your home’s energy efficiency? The right insulation paired with a good roof and active ventilation system will keep you living comfortably.

First, it is important to know what attic insulation is and what it looks like. Insulation is that puffy, cotton candy like filler around your walls. It is for thermal purposes. Insulation is material we use to fill the spaces like the little gaps, crevices and hard-to-reach places. These include behind walls as well as above ceilings. Builders use it on your home to reduce heat flow by reflection and/or absorption. You can call a local insulation company such as LiveGreen to assess the condition and how it is performing. We look at the R-value which is the thermal resistance. We understand that higher R-values have greater insulating effectiveness. The R-value depends on the type of insulation installed, its thickness, and the density.

When LiveGreen Insulates An Attic

We can identify the type of insulation you currently have and if it needs to be changed out. We can choose from a variety of different insulation types to suit your needs. The right insulation increases the energy efficiency of your home by reducing the amount of heat that escapes in the winter. When LiveGreen comes out to do an estimate in the winter, we make sure the insulation is containing the heat. The insulation done properly keeps your house warm when it is so chilly outside.

When we visit in the summer, it is important that we see that the insulation is keeping your home from getting too warm and muggy inside. We will notify you if the current insulation situation is not retaining the cold air during the summer months. Without updating the attic insulation situation, you will continue to have difficulties keeping the interior cool and comfortable during that summer season.
