Attic Insulation Services Throughout Lynchburg, VA
Did you know that up to 50% of heat loss in your home is through the attic? Heating and cooling accounts for 50 to 70 percent of the energy used in the average American home, while inadequate insulation and air leakage are leading causes of energy waste in most homes. Adding insulation to your attic is a cost effective solution that delivers immediate results in both comfort and energy savings. There are several types of attic insulation:
- Loose-fill (or blown-in) insulation: Loose-fill fiberglass insulation (also called blown-in insulation) is perfect for insulating open attic spaces. Blown-in fiberglass insulation creates an even thermal blanket and can be installed over existing attic insulation.
- Batt insulation: Fiberglass insulation comes in batt form, often identified as a roll. Batt insulation must be carefully trimmed to ensure it fits properly and does its job correctly. Open attics are not often insulated fully with batt insulation, but rather it is used to insulate areas such attic knee walls.
- Spray foam insulation: If you want high efficiency, spray foam is the way to go. This product insulates and seals air leaks in one step. Spray foam insulation can be used to insulate attics in new homes or in existing homes.
