Importance of Attic Insulation
Proper Insulation Will Keep Your Home Comfy and Efficient
The insulation in your attic plays an important part in keeping temperatures in your home stable. If your attic is not properly insulated, you can feel the effects in:
• Extreme warm or cold temperatures
• Rodent infestation in your attic
• Abnormally high utility bills
The wrong type, amount, or distribution of blown-in insulation are all factors that directly contribute to home efficiency issues related to your heating and air conditioning systems. To make sure your systems are equipped to not be over-run or quickly broken, the amount of insulation in your attic needs to be appropriate for the size of your home.
Milestone’s indoor air quality team can perform an extensive evaluation of your attic insulation. We can determine if you need adjustment in your insulation levels or if your problems would be most efficiently solved by completely removing your existing insulation and replacing with a fresh layer. Each home we visit is evaluated case-by-case, and our technicians will walk you through all your options to increase your HVAC efficiency up-front before completing any work.
Our team also installs radiant barrier insulation – a specific type of insulation with the primary purpose of preventing extra heat from entering your home via your attic. In DFW’s hot summers, installing radiant barrier insulation is a great proactive way to reduce your utility bills when they are normally highest. One of our indoor air quality specialists will measure the size and specifications your home would need to receive the maximum benefit from this insulation, share the scope of work and pricing with you, and upon agreement begin improving your home efficiency the same day!
