Why Is Attic Insulation Needed?
Attic insulation can help prevent gradual heat and moisture damage to your home. Attic insulation can slow down heat buildup, which can negatively impact your roof and your home’s structure. When the proper amount of attic insulation is installed by the professionals at Delmarva Insulation, your home can maintain a comfortable temperature so you and your family can be comfortable. Upgrading your home’s insulation can help you to save money on energy bills and help reduce damage caused by extreme temperatures.
What an Attic Insulation Upgrade Can Do for You
When your residential property undergoes an attic insulation upgrade, you are helping to increase your home’s energy efficiency. Energy efficiency begins in the attic. Did you know 70% of energy loss is up, not out? This means that adding attic insulation is the most crucial step you can take in increasing the climate control capabilities and overall cost efficiency of your home’s heating and cooling system. By increasing the efficiency of your attic, you can see a reduction in energy bills almost immediately. At Delmarva Insulation, our highly trained attic insulation contractors proudly provide attic insulation services to homes across all of Delaware.
The Benefits of Air Sealing Your Attic
Energy efficiency is about more than insulation. An efficient attic includes air sealing. According to the Department of Energy, having your home air sealed by a qualified contractor can save up to 20% on heating and cooling costs. Attic air sealing prevents airflow between a home and the attic. Proper air sealing helps heated and cooled air stay inside the house by sealing small gaps that leak air. When a home isn’t properly air sealed, temperature-controlled air from the inside will flow out, and undesirable air from the outside will flow in. With a house that has not been air-sealed, keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer becomes inefficient and costly.
The Benefits of Insulating Your Attic
Insulating your attic reduces heat transfer between spaces. When upgrading attic insulation in existing homes, blown-in fiberglass is added to existing insulation using one of several industry-leading attic insulation products. This adds R-value (insulating power) to the house and creates a fresh new blanket of protection. Our team at Delmarva Insulation also offers a wide range of spray foam insulation services for unwanted air sources in hard-to-reach attic and rooftop zones, basement box sills, and more.
Do you have a newer home? Even newer homes can benefit from upgraded insulation. As building codes increase, nearly all homes need more insulation to ensure they are meeting current standards.
