Advanced Insulation™ takes a comprehensive approach to creating energy efficient homes. Every attic has different needs and we customize our approach based on the best possible outcome for our customers. Although most attics require blown in insulation, we also use the following measures when appropriate:
Apply a radiant barrier to all interior facing surfaces that cannot be covered with blown in insulation
How Attic Insulation Works
Temperature changes within your home happen naturally. In the winter, heat escapes the living areas of your home to cooler spaces such as attics, basements and attached garages. During the summer, the outside heat will make its way indoors to your homes interior. Your home’s heating and cooling system works to maintain a consistent temperature based on your thermostat settings.
Attic insulation works to combat this natural occurrence by limiting air movement and is an effective insulator. Insulation is rated by thermal resistance known as R-Value. The greater the R Value the greater the insulating value. R-value requirements vary by region with colder climates requiring thicker insulation levels.
