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 important 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 will 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.

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.
Air sealing prevents airflow between a home and the attic. Proper air sealing helps heated and cooled air stay inside the home by closing the 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 home that has not been air sealed, staying warm in the winter and cool in the summer becomes an inefficient and costly endeavor.
There are several sources within a home that may be contributing to air leaks, including: light fixtures, plumbing stacks, soffit drops, basement box sills and more. To learn more about how our air sealing services can benefit your home, visit our Air Sealing page and contact our attic insulation contractors today!
Insulating your attic will greatly help in keeping temperature controlled air in and unwanted air out. When upgrading insulation in existing homes, blown-in fiberglass is added on top of existing insulation using one of several industry leading attic insulation products. This adds R-value (insulating power) to the home 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 boxsills 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.
