ATTIC VENTILATION & INSULATION

Don’t Pay Too Much to Heat & Cool Your House

Poor attic ventilation can ruin insulation, destroy shingles and raise energy bills. Poor insulation allows heat to move through ceilings, which can account for a 30% increase in your total heating and cooling costs.

The Federal Housing Administration recommends a minimum of one square foot of attic ventilation (both intake and exhaust) for every 300 square feet of attic space. The amount should be divided equally between intake ventilation systems (soffit vents) and exhaust ventilation (roof vents).

How Insulation Works

When a home or other structure does not have sufficient attic insulation, heating bills can skyrocket and roof decking can be damaged. Poor insulation allows hot and cold air to move through the ceilings, oftentimes leading to a 30 percent increase in your heating and cooling costs. Allstar Construction is ready to help make your home more comfortable and reduce your energy costs with quality attic insulation.

How Does Insulation Work?

It may seem odd to add insulation for warmth while purposely allowing cold air to enter your attic through the vents. However, this combination is key to a healthy and energy-efficient home. In winter, outdoor air helps to keep your attic cold, reducing the potential for ice dams. Proper insulation and air sealing ensure that cold air stays in the attic while blocking heat from escaping the living area below. During warmer months, venting allows excess heat to escape your attic, protecting roof shingles from “frying,” while insulation prevents your air conditioner from working overtime by creating a barrier between your living space and the attic.

Insulation products range from traditional rolls and batts to loose-fill (blown) and spray-foam insulation. Let our attic insulation company help you determine the right product to make your home more energy-efficient.

Benefits of Quality Insulation

When adding high-quality insulation in proper amounts to your attics, ceilings and walls, you enjoy better energy efficiency and comfort in your home all year long. Here are some of the top benefits of adding quality insulation.

  • Increased comfort: Because heat naturally flows from warm places to cool places, it stands to reason that poorly-insulated homes end up sending heat to the attic or losing it to the outside, and vice versa in summer with cool air. Insulation dampens this natural process so you can keep warm air inside in winter and cool air inside in summer.
  • Money savings: Inadequate insulation means your HVAC system has to work overtime to keep spaces warm or cool. Thus, you waste a lot of your hard-earned money on higher energy bills. With quality insulation, your HVAC system does its job the way it was designed to, reducing your energy bills and saving you money.
  • Eco-friendliness: Up to 70 percent of the energy you use in your home is comprised of heating and cooling. If you can reduce that number substantially, you can reduce your carbon footprint and do your part to save the environment.
  • Property value: A well-insulated home boosts your home’s value, making it more appealing to potential buyers.

As you can see, there are many benefits associated with quality insulation!
