Attic Insulation

Keep Your Home Comfortable with Attic Insulation in The Seacoast

Blow-in or blown fiberglass insulation is a good choice when insulating your attic. A special machine shreds the fiberglass and then blows it through an application hose to properly cover and insulate the space. Dr. Energy Saver can provide blown cellulose, blown fiberglass, fiberglass batts or denim batts for different applications.

The Benefits of Upgrading Your Attic's Insulation:

  • Cut your air conditioning and heating costs by as much as 40%
  • Provide steady comfort throughout different rooms in the house
  • A permanent solution that will stand the test of time-no maintenance required!
  • Amplify the performance of your HVAC equipment that will work less hard to cool
  • Lessen your home's carbon footprint while increasing its resale value

Upgrading attic insulation is a VERY popular energy-saving improvement because more energy (and money!) is lost through the attic than through any other part of the house.

What makes matters worse is improperly or poorly installing inadequate attic insulation. Existing attic insulation in many homes may be as minimal as R-19-- which pales in comparison to the recommended R-value!

Going through a cold winter with so little insulation is like wearing a t-shirt in a snowstorm. What your house really needs is the equivalent of a thick down-filled parka.

The U.S. Department of Energy recommends between R-49 and R-60 of attic insulation in Rochester, Durham, Dover, and other areas. That's at least a 16-in.-thick blanket of fiberglass insulation!

Importance of Air Sealing and Insulating Attics

Larry Janesky explains that insulation is also needed in warmer areas. Insulation prevents heat transfer. It prevents hot air from being transferred to the outside in the wintertime, and prevents the attic's scorching heat from being transferred into the living areas of your home during the summer.

 

Air Sealing Goes Alongside Attic Insulation

Baffles keep ventilation channels open. Plastic spacers are installed between rafters in the attic to maintain a vent space beneath the roof surface after new insulation is installed.

Air sealing is a critical step when insulating an attic because sealing air leaks stops conditioned interior air from leaking into the attic. Dr. Energy Saver uses a variety of materials and techniques to stop this energy-wasting air leakage.

Installing baffles ensures proper attic ventilation. Sized to fit between the rafters in the attic, plastic baffles maintain a ventilation space between the attic's soffit vents (located along the eaves) and the ridge vent. Installing baffles before adding more attic insulation helps avoid excess moisture.

Old insulation can be reused, most of the time. As long as the existing insulation is not wet, moldy or overly compressed, it can usually be put back into place after the attic has been air-sealed and before new insulation is installed.
