Icicles may be beautiful as they drip along the eaves of homes, but these pretty ice formations also tip off homeowners to an enormous problem building on the rooftop. Icicles are formed from melting ice and snow and turn into thick ridges of solid ice buildup. This accumulated ice along the edge of the roof is called an ice dam and they can cause extensive water damage inside and outside your home.

To prevent ice dams and icicles from forming, homes need to keep the attic and roof cold so that the snow and ice in the middle or top of the roof does not melt. Adequate home attic insulation keeps heat in the home and out of the attic. A cold attic will prevent ice melt so that water cannot run down to the cold edge of the roof where it will refreeze and create a dam. When you have the right R-Value of attic insulation heat is prevented from escaping to the attic and out the roof. A warm attic and roof is what causes the ice to melt, run down the roof, dam and cause water pooling which can get under shingles, siding and cause extensive damage to your home.

Blow-in insulation in Boston, MA is the perfect insulation that can be installed over existing insulation to prevent ice dams from forming. This insulation can perfectly cover cracks, leaks, and crevices and fill spaces around joists and rafters.

You might be wondering why you have such high utility bills in the summer and winter. You may even have sufficient attic insulation and a brand new HVAC system. There is a good chance that the rest of the insulation in your home may be lacking. However, ripping down drywall is not a practical solution just to improve the insulation in wall cavities. However, existing insulation can be improved without damaging your existing ceilings and walls with blown-in insulation.

Blown-in insulation in Boston, MA is the only method to insulate existing, closed-up walls and ceilings. Borate cellulose material is blown into the walls and ceiling to fill in the tiniest holes, gaps, and cracks. It offers an effective air tight solution for your home that will last. With the right amount of insulation, cold outside air won't come into your home keeping the heat running this winter.

It's important to hire a professional when installing this type of insulation. Small 2" holes need to be created in the walls and ceiling in order to blow the insulation. Contact Custom Insulation Inc., to help you fortify your current insulation for the upcoming winter weather.

Blown-in Insulation Cuts Heat Loss in Attics of Older Homes - Boston, Worcester, MA

Joseph Coupal - Monday, December 01, 2014

The common places at home where heat is usually lost are at the attic floor, roof, and walls, making them a great target for additional insulation. Adding home insulation, particularly in the attic of older homes, is important if you want to cut down on heat loss.

Warm air that is needed in winter can leak from a multitude of areas in an old house. Primarily, heat loss happens through the top of the house where it rises and escape through a roof that has insufficient insulation. In return, cold air is allowed to creep in making your house too cold, specifically when there is a drastic drop in temperature. Without adequate attic insulation not only will you suffer from chilly nights but also from the high energy expense resulting from your efforts to keep your living area comfortable during extremely cold weather conditions.

Keeping older houses warm can be tricky. Older materials which were originally used for insulation may have deteriorated over time, and the energy efficiency of more modern materials has improved dramatically. Today, there are energy-saving and cost-effective options to control the heat flow, such as blown-in insulation in Boston, MA. This can be the least invasive and most efficient method of adding insulation in your old home.
