During the winter, heat often escapes through the attic of a house and through the roof. This can cause your home to uncomfortably cold or hot, not to mention rack up a high energy bill. With our SuperAttic system, we can remedy your attic problems with a continuous air and insulation barrier with no thermal bridging to compromise energy performance. With this process, roof ventilation is maintained without allowing unwonted, exterior air in.
The benefits of spray foam make it better equipped for insulating attics than rigid foam. Spray foam insulation can expand to seal in smaller holes and cracks which can leak out air; the process can, however, become a bit more messy than rigid insulation. Rigid insulation, though it is easier to cut to fit an area and has varying thicknesses, takes longer to install and because it cannot expand like spray foam, is really more suited for insulating basements and crawl spaces.
Many homes suffer discomfort and can become too hot or too cold because air is not properly circulating through the house. A major part of this problem is that poor insulation causes air to leak through cracks into the attic and then through the roof. Once this happens, more air is drawn up from the basement or crawl space which allows cold air from the outside to circulate through the house, making it very uncomfortable to live in even if the furnace is working. This is known as the "stack effect." By properly insulating and air sealing your home, you can prevent this from happening and save more on your energy bill.
The location of crawl spaces in the home, as earlier mentioned, make it a prime target for cold air to leak in through in the winter time. By insulating with our amazing SilverGlo rigid insulation, you can trap moisture and bugs out while keeping good air in, making your crawl space an energy-efficient part of your home instead of a problem area.
One thing that few homeowners are really aware of as a danger to their home is ice damming. This occurs when heat escapes from the attic and melts snow on the roof. As the snow melts, it slides down the roof to the gutter where it freezes again and overtime, this builds up to the point where water just sits on the roof, dammed up by the ice. This water then leaks back through the roof shingles into the house. This can be prevented, however, by installing energy-efficient insulation that will keep heat from escaping in the first place.
Windows and doors are another area where air can leak out easily. Cracks and gaps along the edges of doors and windows can allow a significant amount of air to leak out; homes with window insulation this poor have the energy loss equivalent of having a window open all the time. Investing in replacing your windows means you get the expertise of our professional technicians to measure your windows with precision so that you can be sure that you won't have to worry about air leaks.
