Does your home feel too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer? This is why our homes lose energy from various outlets such as floors, windows, walls. However,
60% of your home’s energy loss is through the Attic!
This makes sense as heat rises it makes its way to the top floor ceiling and then penetrates into your attic eventually escaping to the outside world.
All this energy leaving your home is energy that YOU paid for with your hard earned money. Weather that is heating in the winter or cooling in the summer, most home-owners overspend on energy due to poor attic insulation.
Insulation can settle over time and sometimes you don’t even have enough insulation to start with. So over time it is highly recommended to monitor your attic insulation levels to prevent overspending on your utility bills.
To save up to 40% on your utility bills you should top-up your attic insulation to R-60
R-value measures the resistance to energy transfer so having an R-value of 60 provides you with the maximum amount of resistance which translates into maximum savings.
Having your attic topped up with R-60 level insulation will prevent condensation and moisture build-up in the attic as well.
You should also ensure that your attic has proper ventilation to let the stale air that builds up inside escape as well. This will prevent over-heating of your attic in the summer and lengthen the life of your roof shingles.
Our professional technicians only use the best brand on the market which is Owens Corning and their product Atticat Blown-in fiberglass insulation. Fiberglass is mildew and vapour resistant so it does not settle over time as quickly as other materials.
