HOW INSULATION WORKS
Heated air naturally flows into cooler space. Attic insulation creates thermal resistance, slowing down the rate at which heat flows from warm areas to cooler areas in your home.
In winter, insulation slows heat from flowing into your attic from living spaces below, reducing the amount of time you need to run your heating system in order to maintain comfortable room temperatures. In summer insulation slows heat built up in the attic from penetrating down into air conditioned living spaces below, also cutting costs while reducing wear and tear on your air conditioner.
If you have rooms that heat slowly in winter or cool slowly in summer you may have insufficient or uneven insulation levels in your attic. We believe that good insulation installation begins the moment we arrive at your house. For every job, we follow a three-step process that ensures you’ll get the right solution for your specific needs.
Does your current home insulation suit the local climate? Are there areas in your house where you’re losing heat or cool air? These are the types of things we look for when we come to your home. We’ll also consult with you to understand your specific goals – from improving the comfort of your living space to saving on energy bills – in order to determine the best plan to upgrade your current insulation.
When it comes to insulation, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. There are a lot of product choices and insulation installation methods. Once we’ve assessed the specific needs of your home, we’ll recommend materials and installation techniques to suit your situation.
