When you think of upgrading your home’s insulation, the attic is often the first area that comes to mind. Air naturally moves through a house from floor to ceiling. By focusing your dollars on an attic upgrade you are focusing on the number one area of energy loss.
Fiberglass insulation is a great option for insulating attics and any area of a home. Here are three benefits of upgrading your attic with fiberglass insulation:
- Fiberglass insulation is a cost effective insulator. Fiberglass insulation is a low cost product that is easy to install. It can easily be blown over existing insulation, creating a complete blanket to help reduce energy bills and keep your home comfortable.
- Fiberglass insulation is a green product from manufacturing to installation. Fiberglass insulation is manufactured primarily from recycled glass. This means there are fewer natural resources used to manufacture fiberglass than some other types of insulation. When installed correctly, fiberglass insulation saves more energy over its lifetime than it used to produce. If you’re looking for a green product to insulate your home, fiberglass insulation is ideal.
- Fiberglass insulation can be as effective as spray foam. When combining fiberglass insulation with full air sealing, fiberglass insulation can provide the same thermal and air sealing benefits as spray foam – at a lower price point. Having your home fully air sealed by a qualified contractor helps keep conditioned air inside to increase comfort and reduce energy bills.
Adding fiberglass insulation to your attic is one of the most cost effective ways to save money on your energy bills. Wondering if your home could benefit from additional attic insulation and air sealing? Contact us for a free estimate.
