How to Choose Attic Insulation for Your Home
Your home’s attic is an extra area that you can use for a playroom, another bedroom or a storage area. Not all houses have attics, and constructing an attic depends on your home’s design and overall structure.
Attic insulation prevents heat loss in the winter and helps retain cool air in the summer. If you have the right insulation, you can save 10% up to 50% on your heating bill. But you need the right – and right amount – of attic insulation for this to happen.
Check the R-Value
R-value measures the insulating material’s resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the efficient the insulating material is. The general attic’s R-value is between R-30 and R-49. During the cold season, it goes up to R-60. With the help of the R-value, you can determine which type of insulation you need for your attic.
Choose the Right Contractor
Your roofing system will only provide proper protection if excellent products are installed. Choosing the right roofing contractor and insulation for your attic, make your home last longer. The right contractor will also ensure that you have the right amount of insulation for both too much or too little can be detrimental to your roofing system.
