Why Attic Insulation Matters

family-footer

With increased environmental awareness in today’s world, you are probably looking for ways to make your Wylie, Texas, home a bit greener. One of the easiest ways you can lower energy consumption all year is with proper attic insulation.

Types of Attic Insulation

There are several types of attic insulation to choose from including batts, blown, and sprayed. Insulation batting comes in long rolls that are cut and placed between the floor studs in your attic. Batts installs quickly and easily, but can be difficult to cut precisely to ensure a good seal.

Blown insulation is installed by a service technician. It’s made from fiberglass, minerals, or cellulose and is blown in a layer along your attic floor. Blown insulation fills in gaps and crevices better than batts.

Spray foam insulation works well along attic ceilings when you don’t have any ducts or HVAC components in your attic. The spray sticks to the ceiling easily and fills in holes and cracks quite well.

How Insulation Works

During cold weather, warm air inside your home rises and can seep outside through your attic. During the summer, hot air can work its way inside without proper insulation. These air movements happen in attics easily and from your attic without the right insulation.

Insulation works to prevent air movement. Air caught inside insulation works to keep heated air from moving elsewhere. Insulation has an R-value, a number that indicates how well it keeps heat from moving through it. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation.

Reasons to Insulate Your Attic

Attic insulation reduces the amount of heat lost, thus reducing the amount of energy used to heat your home. Less electricity and gas used means a smaller carbon footprint.

A sealed attic prevents pollen, dirt, pests, and insects from coming inside. This keeps your indoor air quality healthier and keeps you feeling your best.
