Proper attic insulation is essential to keeping your Dahlonega, GA home at a comfortable temperature. With the right insulation, even a small attic can remain comfortable all year long. But a poorly insulated attic can cause you all kinds of problems, from damp and moldy walls to uncomfortable space.
Insulation is designed to keep heat in or cold out – and it works best when installed properly. In winter, insulation keeps heat trapped inside your home, while in summer properly installed insulation allows air to circulate, ventilating your home and preventing overheating. Insulation is one of the most important home improvement projects you will ever undertake to improve your home’s energy efficiency. Anyone who has lived long enough to see how rapidly prices for energy have increased can attest to that fact.
However, insulating an attic is one of the most neglected projects. Up to 80% of Americans do not properly insulate their attics. As a result, a significant amount of energy is wasted, and a lot of unnecessary income is spent on heating and cooling bills.
If your attic is not well insulated, RRG Roofing is available to assist you with attic insulation. You can take advantage of multiple benefits, including cost savings on each monthly utility bill, increased comfort throughout your home with better thermal resistance, and durability that protects your roof by keeping water out of your attic.
There is no better time to add more insulation to your attic than during your re-roof project. Let RRG Roofing show you how it makes financial sense to add more Owens Corning attic insulation while we are putting on your new residential roofing system.
Attic Insulation: What is R-Value?
The R-value is also referred to as “the thermal resistance of an assembly,” which is a measure of how well an item resists heat flow. The higher the R-value, the better it is at keeping heat out rather than letting it in.
When determining the best insulations for your home, you need to understand how R-values are calculated. They are not directly related to the thickness or density per se, but they are related to the number of fibers per square inch or the density of the insulation. The thicker or denser the insulation, the more air pockets it has and the higher the R-value will be.
Determining the right R-Value is important to properly insulate your attic. Insulation that’s too thin will not keep air from passing through it; it will just diminish the amount of insulating value already in place in your attic. Insulation that’s too thick can block airflow and restrict ventilation in your attic — leading to more problems with overheating and cooling down your house unevenly over time.
Why Is Proper Attic Insulation Important?
Homes that are more energy efficient aren’t just saving money on utility bills. They’re also contributing less to the carbon footprint of the planet, which is one of the biggest threats facing our planet today.
