The #1 source of air leaks in a typical home is through the ceiling, walls, and floors. One of the most basic and cost-effective ways to increase the value and comfort of your home while reducing energy bills is to improve the insulation in the attic. Whether you are looking to upgrade your existing Insulation or if you are in the process of building a new home, Northern Foamworks can take care of all of your Attic Insulation needs.
Most homes have fibreglass insulation in the attic. The problem with fibreglass insulation is that it doesn't properly seal, so there is air circulation that can escape, taking your precious heat with it. Spray foam addresses this issue in a big way and helps seal off heat leaks keeping your home toasty warm in the coldest times.
The average home is not energy efficient due to inadequate levels of insulation. This is especially true in a northern Albertan climate. Without quality insulation, hot or cold air (depending on the season) moves through the roof and into your living area. Trapping the hot or cold air in the attic so that your living area stays at a consistent, comfortable temperature year round. With that said, insulating the attic is the easiest and most cost effective way to save money on your energy bills. Other benefits include increased comfort of living area, extended life of your HVAC unit, noise control, condensation control, and energy conservation.
Hot air rises and cool air falls, therefore, this continuous motion causes an uninsulated home/ living area to become uncomfortable because warm places become cooler and vice versa. During the winter months, heated air flows into the garage, basement or attic. The attic is where most of the heat is lost during the winter months; however, ensuring adequate levels of foam insulation will prevent this heat loss.
Helping you to keep the home temperature uniform; it allows you to save you money by reducing your energy consumption and also provides a comfortable atmosphere. Additional benefits include noise reduction and an increase in home value.
Be it a newly built or a home that has survived for ages, our way of insulation can benefit greatly. As time passes it gradually becomes compacted and less efficient.
