Can Attic Insulation Affect My Utility Bills?

It’s that time of year when air conditioning can really impact your utility bills. And that means it might be a good time to assess the amount and quality of your attic insulation.

Attic insulation is a crucial component of any home’s energy efficiency and overall comfort. Proper insulation helps keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, reduces energy costs, and enhances indoor air quality. When it comes to selecting insulation, Owens-Corning is a reputable brand known for producing high-quality insulation products. Here’s what you need to know about attic insulation, with a focus on Owens-Corning products since they are the leading company providing insulation:

Types of Attic Insulation

  1. Batts and Rolls (Blanket Insulation): This is one of the most common forms of insulation and is easy to install. It comes in sections that can be cut to fit the spaces between attic rafters or floor joists.
  2. Loose-fill Insulation: This type is made from small particles that are blown into the attic space to provide a thick layer of insulation. It’s excellent for attics with irregular joist spacing or numerous obstructions.
  3. Spray Foam Insulation: This type expands to fill the space where it is sprayed, creating an airtight seal. It is more expensive but provides excellent thermal and air barrier properties.

Owens-Corning Insulation Products

Owens-Corning offers several insulation products that are ideal for attic spaces:

  1. Fiberglass Batts and Rolls: Owens-Corning’s Fiberglas™ insulation comes in various R-values (thermal resistance measures) to meet different climate needs. Their EcoTouch® PINK® Fiberglas™ Insulation is famous for its ease of use and effectiveness.
  2. Loose-fill Insulation: The PROPINK® L77 Loosefill Insulation is designed for blowing into attic spaces, providing excellent coverage and thermal performance. It is effective at filling nooks and crannies and providing an even insulation layer.
  3. Foam Insulation: Although Owens-Corning is primarily known for its fiberglass products, they also provide components used in foam insulation systems, which are excellent for sealing air leaks and providing high R-values.

Key Benefits of Owens-Corning Insulation

  • Energy Efficiency: High R-value options help maintain a consistent temperature in your home, reducing heating and cooling costs.
  • Durability: Owens-Corning products are designed to last the lifetime of your home, providing a cost-effective insulation solution.
  • Soundproofing: Besides thermal insulation, Owens-Corning products also help reduce sound transmission between rooms and from external sources.
  • Eco-Friendly Options: Many Owens-Corning products contain a high percentage of recycled glass, reducing the environmental impact.

Installation Considerations

  • Proper Installation: To achieve the best performance, insulation must be correctly installed. This includes sealing all air leaks before adding insulation to ensure an airtight space.
  • Safety Precautions: When installing fiberglass products, the folks who install it will wear protective gear such as gloves, long sleeves, a dust mask, and safety goggles.

Choosing the right type and amount of attic insulation, particularly from a reputable brand like Owens-Corning from a reputable company like Four Seasons Roofing, can significantly impact your home’s energy efficiency and comfort. Free evaluations and quotes are available.

I absolutely LOVE my new roof. Recent windstorm did some damage to my house and I needed new roof installed fast, otherwise I was facing more damage to the inside. Alex, the owner of 4 Seasons Roofing was very professional and courtesy from day 1. Their estimator did a great job explaining me what needed to be done and what was not necessary, unlike the other guys from Thumbtack I had to come over for an estimate. They finished my project last week and I am very grateful for what they did for me on a short notice.

From the very start we knew that 4 Seasons Roofing were going to carry out our roofing project seamless. Consultation, professional advice, communication, their bid with materials and labor in detail, and execution were all solid. We we extremely satisfied with them that we also hired them to replace our windows, which was another project done well, within the budget discussed and on time! I can recommend this company without any reservations.
