Attic spaces are usually hot in the summer and cold in the winter. Without proper attic insulation, you could be wasting money and energy. As much as 85% of the heat lost in a house passes through the attic. Installing insulation in an attic can improve energy efficiency, lower utility bills, and add resale value to your home. Contact TruTeam today for all your home attic insulation needs.
In an unfinished attic, insulation should be placed over the floor joists. Consideration should also be given to insulating the rafters. Attic doors can also be insulated to protect air flow through the door itself. In finished attic spaces, insulation should be placed between the studs of knee walls, along exterior walls and the roof, and in ceilings.
An R-value is the measure of an insulation’s ability to resist heat flow. Higher R-values indicate better insulation performance. Older homes often have less than the recommended level of insulation in the attic. Proper attic insulation at the recommended R-value for your climate zone can help reduce heat loss. Contact TruTeam for an evaluation of your attic’s current insulation levels.
