The benefits of professionally installed attic insulation are very important, regardless of the time of year. It’s just as important to keep your air conditioning bills down in the summer as it is to keep your heating costs down in the winter.
Professionally installed attic insulation does both jobs.
Properly prepared and sealed insulation will achieve the maximum energy efficiency. This is true whether the insulation product is batts or loose fill blown in.
The attic is where a little bit of attention can make a big difference. According to the Department of Energy, properly insulating the attic can save 10 to 50 percent on a typical heating bill.
Installing attic insulation is one home maintenance project that is best left to the professionals, however. Here’s why.
Building standards vary
Each region has its own recommendations as to how much insulation you need in your attic. Those standards vary depending on where you live. Muth & Company Roofing stays up-to-date on the current minimum insulation requirements for all the counties we service, and we can do an attic energy efficiency inspection that will tell us exactly how much insulation your home needs.
Prep work is necessary
Installing attic insulation is a little more involved than just blowing in or laying down the material. It also entails prep work on soffits and bath fans, as well as other electrical work. This can be challenging and dangerous if you don’t know what you are doing. Professionally installed attic insulation is best left to knowledgeable roofing contractors like Muth & Company’s crew
