The Right Attic Insulation Can Prevent Up To 97% Of Outdoor Heat From Seeping Into Your Home…
If your attic is poorly insulated - or is not insulated at all - your energy bills are much higher than they need to be.
Home insulation works to keep cold air or hot air inside of your home and helps block the outdoor climate from creeping into your home. Without it your system has to work too hard.
The best, expertly-installed insulation can block out 97% of outdoor heat that otherwise would infiltrate your home’s livable space.
To understand why this is, it’s important to know how different your attic’s habitat is from the rest of your home. In the summer, attic temperature can reach up to 125-130 degrees, with most of that heat absorbed from outside. That heated air is trapped up in the attic space, slowly permeating throughout your home.
Because this temperature is so extreme, when you set the thermostat to a comfortable 70-74 degrees, your central air system grinds constantly to fight against 125-degree air that should not be in the home in the first place.
How Attic Insulation Works
Attic insulation targets the area in your home most vulnerable to absorbing and allowing outdoor temperature to seep in. There are two types of attic insulation Service Champions offers.
The blown-in fiberglass insulation, also known as spray insulation, blankets the attic floor with 6 – 12 inches of fiberglass insulation. Heat absorbed from attic cracks are trapped into the fiberglass, preventing the heat from transferring into the home through the deck and other potential leaky areas.
Radiant Barrier (Radiant Insulation)
The radiant-barrier insulation staples several metal sheets onto the under deck of the roof until it is completely covered. This prevents heat from penetrating through the attic in the first place.
