Why Attic Insulation is Important for Your Home
Many Maryland homes that are 10 year or older are under-insulated. Attic insulation is important to your home’s performance and energy efficiency year round. An insulation contractor can make sure that attic insulation is properly installed with air sealing, delivering comfort and lower energy bills during the hottest and coldest times of the year.
What is R-value?
The performance of insulation is measured by R-value, or its ability to resist heat flow. Higher R-values mean more insulating power. Air sealing is important for optimal performance of insulation, which works best when air is not moving through or around it.
How Much Attic Insulation Do I Need?
The amount of attic insulation you need varies depending on where your home is located and how much existing insulation you have in the attic. In the Mid-Atlantic region, most homes need R-38 to R-60. A Fichtner Services representative will inspect your attic to determine your current level and recommend the amount of insulation that is right for your home.
