Attic Insulation not only keeps indoor temperatures comfortable and consistent – it also creates a barrier to sound, preventing noise from travelling between rooms. Proper insulation in the attic, basement and walls can make a huge difference, and Celluloseman is the company to call. We have the expertise and extensive experience in installing a variety of insulation types, including blown-in insulation (loose-fill cellulose or natural fibres) and spray-foam insulation.
Why Attic Insulation?
Home is the safest space for humans. Every person looks for comfort in this precious space. But it could also be different and might make you feel uncomfortable or uneasy. Especially the temperature at home can make things good or worse. As the time of the year changes, the temperature outside changes too. Harsh weather can make your home excessively warm or cool. This is where attic insulation plays a role in turning your home into a more comfortable and healthy space.
What is Insulation?
Insulation, by definition, is a resistant barrier which prevents the flow of energy from the interior of your structure to the exterior. In simple words, insulation keeps your home warm when it is cool outside and cool when it is warm outside. Insulation slows down conductive and convective heat flow. There is direct flow of heat from warm spaces of your home to the other spaces like attics and basements during winter. It transcends directly through the interiors of your home like walls, ceilings and floors with different temperatures. Usually, heat flows from the outdoors to the interior of your home. To maintain and balance the level, it is important to regain the heat with your heating system. While in summer, the heat has to be removed by the cooling system in your home. Insulation decreases the heat flow with its resistance and fills up the void in your home.
How Attic Insulation Benefits You?
“You can easily reduce up to 40% of heating and cooling costs using attic insulation.”
The attic is one of the biggest areas of your home. Warm and cold air can easily escape from the attic. This can cost you double the price and unnecessary energy. Attic insulation is a necessary component as it does the following-
