Why do you need attic Insulation?
Attic insulation is one important way you can lower you energy bills and make your home more green. The attic is often one of the easiest places to add insulation to your home, making it a great place to start when making weatherizing changes for any season. Insulating your attic can help prevent air from escaping the house and stop outside air from coming in.
Why insulate your attic?
Heating and cooling costs account for up to 50-70 percent of the energy used in an average home. This means that losing your home’s hot or cold air makes for a huge energy waste. Taking steps to prevent this loss is very important when thinking of ways to make your home more green. Any area where you can prevent wasting energy is always an important area to focus on.
Adding insulation to your attic helps reduce your energy costs by lowering the amount of energy you need to keep you home at a comfortable level. Because any changes in your home’s temperature must be fought against by your heating and air conditioning units, leaving spaces where drastic changes can happen makes your home vulnerable to higher energy usage and costs.

Insulations are compared on the basis of R-Value, or resistance to thermal conduction. Dense packed cellulose is installed pneumatically (i.e., using air), which means no gaps. or voids. High installed density, typically around 3.5 lbs. of material per cubic foot, means there will be no settling.
Heat moves by convection and the higher installed densities of cellulose eliminate convective air movement.
The higher installed densities of cellulose also effectively block radiant heat transfer.
A home insulated with cellulose will be much quieter than a glass fiber insulated home due to its effectiveness in preventing sound transmission.
Cellulose has 82 percent recycled content, where Glass fiber glass manufacturers claim an average of up to 50% percent recycled content.
High-density cellulose helps prevent airborne moisture movement. Borates (minerals) in the insulation resist the growth of these organisms, improving building durability and longevity.
Cellulose disperses moisture and helps to protect the surrounding building components.
It only takes 750 Btu’s to produce a pound of cellulose insulation compared to up to 30,000 Btu’s to make just one pound of foam insulation.
Cellulose insulations aren’t hydrophobic, which means they can manage moisture, blocking it from passing through, where it can condense on cool surfaces.
Cellulose insulation completely fills gaps and voids around irregular objects such as wiring, plumbing and framing materials in attics and walls, compared to foam insulation.
Lasts 20- 30 years
1. Flexibility: Fiberglass is available in pre-cut panels, rolls and loose-fill, making it incredibly flexible for installation. It can be placed between rafters, joists, blocks, studs, and any surface that needs insulation. Its flexibility makes fiberglass a very affordable option, particularly compared to similar insulation materials like spray foam.
2.Energy Efficient: On average, fiberglass insulation can help reduce heating and cooling bills by 40% to 50%. In addition to energy savings, fiberglass insulation can also help with noise reduction. Although fiberglass has a satisfactory R-value if it’s not professionally installed, it can lose thermal protection over time.
3.Fire Retardant: Made from recycled glass and sand, fiberglass is a natural fire retardant that poses little to no fire hazard. There’s also fiberglass material that’s treated with a fire retardant to improve the level of safety.
4.Noise Cancelling: Fiberglass has natural sound-dampening properties that can significantly reduce noise coming into the house. Also known as acoustic insulation, fiberglass is used in walls, ceilings and even ducts to help reduce sound transfer.
5.Eco-Friendly: Made from recycled materials, fiberglass is an environmentally-friendly insulation alternative. Out of the most inexpensive insulation materials, fiberglass is one of the most eco-friendly, made of almost 30% recycled materials.
