Make your home more comfortable and efficient with additional attic insulation.
Does your home have enough attic insulation? From what we’ve seen over the years in different homes, at 31-W Insulation, we can almost guarantee it doesn’t. As home improvement specialists who’ve made homes more comfortable and efficient with insulation since 1972, we encourage you to have us come and assess your attic insulation and help you determine if you could benefit from installing more.
Your Orlando, Florida home could likely benefit from additional attic insulation if you have to constantly adjust your thermostat to keep things at a comfortable temperature. You may also need more attic insulation if your HVAC unit runs all the time or if you find that, despite your efforts to consume less energy, your monthly utility bills keep going up.
Why Might You Need Additional Attic Insulation
he newer that your Orlando, Florida home is, the more puzzled you might be if you are told that you need additional attic insulation. After all, you might assume that your home was built with enough energy-efficiency to last for a lifetime. At 31-W Insulation, we caution anyone to be too complacent about the condition or efficiency of their attic insulation.
The first thing to know is that while there are residential building code requirements for attic insulation, as well as walls, that builders must adhere to, it might not be as much as you would want to have for maximum energy efficiency. Some homeowners think of it as the bare minimum and choose to have additional attic insulation installed. We’ll give you an honest recommendation once we inspect your home to let you know if you can achieve more efficiency or if the builder did a marvelous job already.
The next thing to know is that all types of attic insulation have a lifespan to consider. Nothing lasts forever, and if you have an older home, it could be time to replace or augment your attic insulation. In addition, there are various situations in which your attic insulation could become damaged. For example, a rodent population or other home invader could use it for nesting and pull it from one area to another. Moisture issues in the attic could also render the attic insulation ineffective.
The best thing to do is have your home’s attic insulation inspected every few years to be sure it is still providing you with the intended R-value and that there aren’t any areas where the insulation has been moved or degraded in some way.
As an insulation contractor, we offer many types of insulation, including fiberglass rolls, blow-in cellulose, slag wool bats, fiberglass or rock, and spray foam insulation. Our skilled technicians are some of the best the industry has to offer, and we have the experience and training to install new installation with precision for superior results. After you work with us, we know you won’t be anything but satisfied with your experience!
