Insulation Services FAQ's
What is the purpose of attic insulation?
A well-insulated attic helps improve performance of your home's heating and cooling systems. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, an attic that isn't properly insulated can account for as much as 30 percent of a home's heating and cooling energy loss.
Is adding insulation to the attic worth it?
Attic insulation has the potential to save you significant amounts of money over time. By reducing heat and cool loss, saving on air-conditioning bills and diminishing the rate at which roof cover materials deteriorate, a high-quality attic insulation installation takes your home from poor to excellent energy performance.

What are the benefits of attic insulation?
Whether your home uses central air conditioning or not, attic insulation is an essential part of achieving an optimal energy-efficiency rating for your home. Even if you can feel comfortable inside your home when the weather is hot, a proper insulation system will allow for better heat flow throughout each room of the home. It gives you a more comfortable living space without having to turn up the thermostat. Insulation can protect your roof and prevent ice dams from forming in cold weather; it also prevents structural damage to the whole building by keeping moisture away from your walls and preventing mold growth in extreme humidity.
Is it worth replacing old insulation?
Many older homes have fiberglass insulation that's more than 40 years old, which is due for replacement. In fact, one recent study showed that about 75 percent of all fiberglass insulation in the U.S. has reached and is beyond its service life. Whether you want to increase your home's energy efficiency or simply reduce the risk of an attic fire or drywall damage, replacing this insulation is an obvious solution.
Can attic insulation get mold?
Attic insulation and mold can be a real issue, adversely affecting the health of home owners. Ambient air and attic insulation are important because both are a large part of keeping your house warm in winter and cool in summer. When there is moisture within the home's attic, mold can start to grow, potentially causing allergies and respiratory problems for you and your family. To help keep the air inside your home fresh and secure against these kinds of issues, it is important to make sure that the insulation in your attic is up to adequate standards.
Does adding more insulation in the attic help with cooling?
Adding additional insulation to an existing roof can reduce your cooling costs. As the roof temperature is lowered, so is the temperature of the attic, which helps keep cool air in and reduces your cooling load.
