Most homes do not have the proper amount of attic insulation which means higher costs in the long run for homeowners. At Red River Roofing, we can't stress enough all the reasons to increase your current attic insulation. Here are just a few:
To inspect your home’s energy usage and performance, Red River Roofing offers a free insulation examination of your home’s attic. According to Energy Star, an attic that is well-insulated can help you save up to 20% on your heating and cooling energy bills per year.
Our inspections check your existing attic insulation levels to determine if you are losing money through an inefficient insulation installment. A home that is insulated incorrectly loses up to 40% of its conditioned air through the attic, which costs you money.
With energy costs increasing, insulation becomes more important to home and business owners with each season. Properly installed insulation will keep out the cold and keep the conditioned air in, which will maximize your R-values. Over the lifetime of a building, maximizing your R-values can eventually pay for itself many times. A1 Certified brings you the most value and efficiency. They have many products to repair your insulation needs for every location in your home or building.
Since we have partnered with Owens Corning, the energy efficiency experts, we offer an exclusive new product called Atticat. Atticat will help ensure that our clients are maximizing their opportunities to save on the increasing cost of energy.
If your attic floor is insulated, but the beams (joists) are still visible, you probably don't have enough insulation. Even if you can't see your beam, there is still no guarantee that you have the proper amount of insulation. Ask us to have one of our A1 Certified Professionals from Red River Roofing do a free attic insulation analysis to measure your insulation.
Do you have enough insulation? To maximize your energy efficiency, we recommend an insulation R-value of 60 for attic floors. This is about 18 inches of insulation.
Adding insulation to your attic is simple and easy with Red River Roofing’s Owens Corning Expanding Blown-In PINK Fiberglas™ Insulation breaks up the fiberglass making if fluffy. This adds millions of the tiny air pockets that give the material its insulating power. The insulation is further conditioned throughout the length of the hose attached to the blowing machine. As it makes its way up to your attic, additional air pockets are added, increasing its insulating power even more. Since Fiberglas™ insulation will not settle it will hold its energy saving, R-value over time.
