Save Money with Attic Insulation Installation in Alliance
Having the right amount of insulation in your attic can make your Alliance home more pleasant throughout the seasons. Increased energy efficiency could also help you save money on heating and cooling bills.
Do you have the proper amount of insulation? Probably not. A recent study by the North American Insulation Manufacturers Association determined 90 percent of homes in the U.S. are underinsulated. If every home in the country was appropriately insulated to modern building code, the Boston University School of Public Health discovered it would cut electric consumption by 37 billion kilowatts. That’s enough electricity to power 3.4 million American homes annually!
Does My Home Have Enough Attic Insulation?
You can assess existing insulation to learn if you have an adequate amount in your attic. If it’s less than 7” deep, your Alliance home is doesn’t have enough insulation. In Alliance, 16-18” deep is recommended.
Additionally, if your home is more than 10 years old, you’ll likely need deeper attic insulation in your Alliance home.
Enhancing your insulation levels could positively affect your energy bills, saving you up to 20 percent.** It can be a vapor barrier against humidity, stop air leaks and may restrict wear and tear on your HVAC system.
Types of Attic Insulation
There are three kinds of attic insulation—spray foam, loose fill and batt.
Spray foam insulation uses liquids that change into a foam on contact. Closed- or open-cell applications can be used in attics.
Closed-cell foam provides the most insulation. It also offers an extensive barrier against air, vapor and water.
Open-cell foam spreads when applied, filling cracks and other hard-to-reach spaces. It’s best for obstructing air but isn’t 100 percent waterproof.
Both types of spray foam insulation may even help block noise.
Loose Fill and Batt Insulation for Attics
Loose fill insulation is blown in using special machinery, while batt insulation is rolls that can be cut to fit. Insulating material can include fiberglass, cellulose, mineral wool and cotton.
Insulation is rated for its resistance to heat flow. This is also referred to as the R-value. Particular levels are recommended based on where you live.
