We’ve discussed the various types of attic insulation such as spray foam insulation that we install across the greater Worcester area, but today we’re going to discuss the importance of air flow within the attic space. We suspect very few of you understand the importance of air flow within the attic.

In order to protect the home from heat loss and damage, there is an absolute necessity to have a clean flow of air in the attic. Ventilation directly impacts insulation’s efficiency. Attic ventilation prevents a damaging condition called “ice damming”. Ice dams are created when the attic is too hot and the heat release through the shingles. Home Attic insulation combined with good air flow will eliminate your threat of ice dams. Of course, you will reduce heat loss and lower your power bills at the same time.

When it comes to making your home perfectly comfortable, the home’s insulation has a direct impact. A properly insulated home serves the homeowner in many ways. One overlooked benefit is the simple silence with not having your HVAC system constantly cycling on and off. The audible cycling of our HVAC systems within a poorly insulated home effects the sub-conscious as it is a constant reminder of the forthcoming expensive utility bill. You can do something to combat this. Improve your home’s insulation effectiveness.

The insulating effectiveness of attic insulation is its R-value. The higher the R-value, the more effective an insulating material is. During the cold season, the insulation prevents the air from escaping into the attic which results in preventing the air to come out. The thermal resistance is measured by its R-value wherein the higher the number indicates a greater ability to lessen the heat transfer.

While during the warm season, a sun-heated roof will raise the attic temperature. With well-insulated attic helps to keep heat out of your living spaces giving warmth condition inside your home. With the controlled flow of heat in and out of your home, attic insulation makes your home a more comfortable place to live in.

Proper attic insulation is the best way to prevent heat loss during the cold season and retain cool air in the summer. It is essential to give close attention to your ceilings and check if further insulation is necessary. Thoroughly check and if possible replace your home attic insulation outright instead of filling in the gaps of the holes.

Most homeowners have to spend more money if they want to live in a warm and comfortable house especially during the cold season. But with the recent development, new insulation strategies will help you in cutting the cost of your energy bills at home. In fact, saving large amounts of money takes some home insulation strategies that are easy and affordable in your pocket.

Some homeowners fail to realize the importance of tapping an insulation expert before marching off on a DIY project. We all take great pride in our DIY projects, but something as important as home insulation at least justifies a professional consult before marching out on a DIY home insulation project. In this blog post we’ll tell you why.

Installing spray form insulation is simply more complicated than you might think. They might look easy on TV, but it actually requires skills and a great deal of expertise. Here are few good reasons why you need to leave the task to the professionals:

  • Insulation Professionals Have The Knowledge - Contrary to what you see on the internet, installing a home attic insulation is not a “spray and forget” exercise. There are specific strategies that vary with each and every individual property construct. Chances are you will miss key areas that need insulating but simply are not visible to the untrained eye.
  • It Requires The Right Tools - Certain tools are required when insulating a home which DIY-er's don't have. So you will end up spending more for buying or renting tools.
  • There Are Tricks of The Trade for Installation - Insulation makes a thermal barrier between the climate outside and within your living space. Professional installers make sure there's a sufficient air circulation in your home. Thus, they install ventilation devices for adequate air flow. They are trained to discern what other things to be done to ensure your home is efficiently insulated.
  • Proper Inspection Must Be Done By A Professional - Prior to insulating a home, inspection must be done to detect infestation, mold and mildew growth. Structural damages must be taken care first as well. Only a professional can thoroughly search for these flaws and they know where to look for them.
  • Limited Insulation Material Options - Your insulation material options are limited to what is available at your local hardware shop. You may fail to experience the savings and efficiency that comes with latest insulation materials.
