Attic Insulation 101

Did you know that by simply upgrading or adding insulation to your attic, you could see up to a 25% reduction in your family’s energy expenses? While turning down the heat or AC when you’re not at home during the day is a great way to reduce heating and cooling costs year-round, having a well-insulated home has actually been proven to be the most cost-effective way to save energy and money in the long-run. This is because with proper attic insulation, home owners can ensure that any gaps and cracks are covered, preventing the heat and/or AC from escaping their home.

The Different Types of Attic Insulation

Today, there are various types of attic insulation available in the market including blanket insulation, blown-in or loose-fill insulation, and spray foam insulation. All ideal for use in the attic, each type is associated with its own benefits, including:

Blanket Insulation

Most commonly used for insulation of large building envelopes blanket insulation is suitable for application in the attic. Made from fiberglass, rock wool or natural fibres, blanket insulation is typically installed along the walls of attics, working to block the transfer of heat through walls and are a great way to cover large sections of space you need insulated.

Blown-in or Loose-fill Insulation

Ideal for filling cavities, attics, and other hard-to-reach places, blown-in and loose-fill insulation is made from fiberglass and/or cellulose (recycled paper). The thick layer of insulation is meticulously sprayed in your attic, creating a seamless coat of insulation which covers the floor, walls and all other nooks and crannies that blanket insulation may miss.

Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation is a unique insulation created by a chemical reaction of two composite materials combining and expanding once dispensed. As one of the most popular & highly requested methods to use for attic insulation today, spray foam insulation gives your attic additional protection against infestations and water damage by naturally sealing up any cracks, holes or crevices that blanket insulation and blown-in or loose-fill insulation may miss. Typically used for attic and wall insulation, spray foam insulation helps seal up cavities, provides tight air sealing in your home, and is also rodent and water resistant for added protection.
