In our previous article, we discussed how attic insulation works and the problems that improper insulation causes your home. Now we’re going to talk about how to improve your home’s energy-efficient barrier even further by making sure that your attic insulation uses fiberglass. Then we will discuss why this summer is the perfect time for you to invest in proper attic insulation.
The Benefits of Fiberglass Insulation
Part of what makes us one of the leading roofing contractors Maryland homeowners trust is the quality of our materials. The insulation that DryTech Roofing installs is high in R-Value, a measure of how effective it is in resisting heat flow. Fiberglass does this by trapping air inside its billions of tiny glass fibers. This trapped air forms a shield that stops heat from getting through.
With our insulation in place, your attic will not heat up this summer. Fiberglass is also non-flammable, so if fire is a concern then it makes an excellent insulation choice. Other great features include immunity to rot and mildew, mold growth, and superior noise reduction.
Why You Should Insulate Your Attic This Summer
The primary reason for insulating your attic this season would be energy savings. An under-insulated attic can lead to increased utility bills. This is because a hot attic affects other parts of the house and your air conditioning has to consume more energy and cost you more money to keep you comfortable.
This problem is very relevant this summer, as homes all around Maryland turn up their air conditioning to avoid the heat and humidity. Another great reason for insulating your attic is comfort. Your air conditioning might not be operating at its full potential because of under-insulation. When your attic is properly insulated, you might notice that your home is cooler and comfier than ever.
By making sure your attic is properly insulated this summer, you are taking a major step towards cutting your yearly utility costs by up to 20%. In order to minimize your energy use, we can offer you a range of energy-efficient home improvement services, something that not all roofing contractors in Maryland can offer. Eventually, the savings you get from all these projects would pay for their installation.
