Insulation in your attic saves you a lot of money on your energy bills. However, it’s a good idea to have a professional install insulation. In all likelihood, it won’t be as effective at preventing heat from transferring out of your home through the roof if you attempt to do the installation by yourself. Here are the main factors to think about when it comes to your attic insulation.
Signs You Need New Insulation
Mysteriously increasing energy bills are a sign you may not have enough attic insulation. Your existing insulation may be old, have water damage from a leaky roof, or be infested by rodents. If you hear scratching noises from the ceiling, that’s a good sign that there are rodents in the attic.
The insulation professional will remove your old insulation and clean the attic. What type of insulation needs to be installed and how much you need depends on a large number of factors. The professional will offer you their expert recommendations, including the advantages and disadvantages of each type of attic insulation.
The two main types of insulation are loose-fill and batt. Batt insulation consists of pre-cut rolls, while loose-fill insulation is blown into your attic space. An adequate amount of either will serve as an effective heat-transfer barrier. Logan's Heating & Cooling in Clinton, MO, is a company that installs attic insulation.
