Enjoy a More Comfortable Home: Our energy-efficient attic insulation helps regulate temperatures, keeping your home comfortable throughout the year. Say goodbye to hot spots and cold drafts.
Save on Energy Bills: Properly installed attic insulation acts as a barrier, reducing heat transfer and keeping your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter. This translates to significant savings on your energy bills.
Increase HVAC System Lifespan: Attic insulation minimizes the strain on your HVAC system by maintaining a consistent temperature. This can lead to a longer lifespan for your heating and cooling equipment.
Improve Indoor Air Quality: Attic insulation helps prevent the infiltration of outdoor pollutants, allergens, and dust into your living spaces, creating a healthier indoor environment for you and your family.
Prevent Pest Infestations: By sealing off entry points, attic insulation acts as a deterrent against pests like rodents and insects, protecting your home from infestations and potential damage.
Temperature Variations: Inadequate attic insulation can lead to uneven temperatures throughout the home. Some rooms may feel too hot or too cold, making it challenging to maintain a comfortable environment.
High Energy Bills: Insufficient insulation allows heat to escape during winter or infiltrate during summer, leading to increased energy consumption. This results in higher energy bills and a strain on your budget.
HVAC System Strain: Without proper attic insulation, your HVAC system has to work harder to compensate for the heat loss or gain. This increased strain can lead to more frequent breakdowns, repairs, and a shorter lifespan for your heating and cooling equipment.
Drafts and Air Leaks: Gaps and cracks in attic insulation allow drafts to enter your living spaces. This can create uncomfortable drafts near windows, doors, or other areas where air infiltration occurs. It can also make it challenging to maintain a consistent indoor temperature.
Moisture and Condensation: Poor attic insulation can contribute to moisture issues, such as condensation forming on surfaces. Excess moisture can lead to mold growth, wood rot, and damage to your home’s structure and belongings.
Allergens and Indoor Air Quality: Inadequate insulation can allow allergens, dust, and pollutants to enter your home. This can lead to poor indoor air quality, triggering allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems for you and your family members.
Pest Infestations: Gaps and openings in attic insulation provide an entry point for pests such as rodents, insects, and birds. These unwelcome guests can cause damage to your property, create noise, and pose health risks.
Environmental Impact: Poor attic insulation results in higher energy consumption, contributing to increased carbon emissions and a larger carbon footprint. Improving insulation can help reduce your environmental impact by conserving energy.
Discomfort and Reduced Home Value: Inefficient attic insulation can lead to discomfort, making it harder to relax or enjoy your living spaces. Additionally, homes with poor insulation may have reduced market value and could be less attractive to potential buyers.
What Are The Different Types of Insulation?
At Home Shield Insulation, we offer a range of attic insulation options to suit your needs. While each type has its advantages, we highly recommend cellulose insulation for its superior performance. Here are the different types of attic insulation we provide:
Fiberglass insulation is a cost-effective choice that offers good thermal performance. It is widely used and provides adequate insulation for attics.
Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation expands upon application, filling gaps and crevices to provide excellent air sealing and insulation. It forms a durable barrier and is ideal for hard-to-reach areas.
Blown-in insulation, available in cellulose or fiberglass, is installed using specialized equipment to distribute loose-fill insulation evenly. It is an effective choice for filling gaps and providing uniform coverage.
Batt insulation consists of pre-cut panels of fiberglass or mineral wool. It is easy to install and provides good thermal insulation for standard attic spaces.
Known for its excellent thermal and soundproofing properties, cellulose insulation is made from recycled materials and is an environmentally friendly option. It provides effective coverage for attics of all shapes and sizes.
