Having trouble keeping the temperature in your house under control on those hot summer days? Or perhaps you are looking for ways to save money on your winter heating bill? One of the easiest ways to solve both of these problems is by improving the insulation in your attic with our blown-in insulation services.
Blown-in insulation continues to be one of the most cost effective ways to insulate most residential attic spaces. Modern insulation is made from environmentally friendly glass fibre, meaning it is non-hazardous, non-combustible, and will not sustain mold growth.
You’ve probably heard the old adage that heat rises, right? Well, it’s only partially true. In winter, heat typically rises from your furnace up through your dwelling and into the attic space. This is why attic insulation is important in winter – you want to keep that heat in your house, not the attic. However, the fact is that heat will actually move to any areas that are cooled. In summer, this is actually inside your house.
Imagine your house on a hot summer’s day; the sun beating down on your roof is heating up the attic. and while the temperature outside might be 30 degrees, your attic car reach upwards of 60 degrees or more. This is why sufficient attic insulation is also important for summer comfort. Not only will it keep the heat in during the winter, but it will also keep the heat out in summer.
Pour blown-in insulation services are an easy and non-intrusive solution that can greatly improve your comfort while reducing your heating and/or cooling bill. As a bonus, you can also receive a rebate of up to $900 from BC Hydro. For more information, please see BC Hydro’s website.
