Attic Insulation: A Homeowner’s Must-Do List

During the hot summers, overheated attics transfer a great deal of heat into the living spaces below. Fortunately, there are steps homeowners can take to reduce the burden on their AC systems while improving their family’s comfort throughout the year. air conditioning service provider, Del-Air, wants you to consider upgrading the insulation in your attic because it is one of the most direct ways to lower your monthly utility bills, as well as improve indoor comfort in all four seasons. Here are the two most common insulation options for families:

  • Fiberglass Batts: An effective and inexpensive method of attic insulation, fiberglass batts are pre-cut to occupy spaces between attic joints. For best results, take care to ensure there are no gaps or compression in the insulation. The goal is to fill the stud cavity completely so no voids or gaps remain. You should also consider installing additional fiberglass batts insulation in areas with lower thermal values like windows and doors. While fiberglass batts can be very effective, they may not prevent as much air leakage as other forms of insulation such as cellulose loose fill.
  • Cellulose Loose Fill: Manufactured from pulverized bits of paper, wood fiber, and cloth, cellulose loose-fill insulation has the advantage of being green-friendly and non-toxic as well as effective. In fact, experts estimate that cellulose reduces air leakage by up to 70%. Additionally, the fiber is treated with fire retardants to protect the safety of your home and family members. While homeowners can often install fiberglass insulation on their own, installing cellulose requires large hoses and is a bit more complex. For best results, consider hiring an expert insulation company to handle your upgrade.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
