Could inadequate attic insulation be costing you money every month?

If your attic insulation looks similar to the photo above, or you’re not sure, it might be time to check. In the Capital District, poor insulation is one of the number one causes of inefficient home performance, as most of a structure’s heating is lost through the roof. Say goodbye to high monthly bills, improve the life of your heating and cooling units, and do your part to protect the environment, all in one step. Local Albany experts at the Climate Chief will help create optimum comfort and performance of your home by finding the right type and amount of insulation for you and ensuring a tight fit.

5 Signs that its time to upgrade your attic insulation:

  1. Rooms are cold in the winter.
  2. Rooms are hot in the summer.
  3. High energy bills.
  4. Icicles form on the edge of your roof.
  5. The attic insulation looks old and warn out.

 

Albany Attic Insulation

Traditional Attic: We removed the old insulation, vacuumed the floor joist bays, performed a comprehensive air-sealing treatment, vented the bathroom exhaust fans to the outdoors, we installed 24″ orange wired flags next to all light fixtures and electrical junction boxes, and then we insulated the attic to the E.P.A. recommended R60 with loose-blown cellulose.
