What is generally referred to as the “attic” of a home can mean different things based on the age, type, and style of your home.

The attic in a typical home is the unfinished area between the ceiling of the living space and the roof irrespective of the size, shape, and style of the home.

Attic Insulation Services

According to the U.S. Department of Energy Home Improvement Expert™ Factsheet

“Air sealing uncontrolled leaks and adding insulation between the attic and the home is one of the most cost-effective measures to improve your home’s performance. It can reduce your heating and cooling bills, improve comfort by stopping drafts, keep contaminants such as moisture, dust, and pests from entering your home, and reduce moisture-related durability problems.”

While the exact figure is sometimes debated, it has been estimated that 80% of American homes are under insulated compared to todays standards and offer little to no air sealing which allows air to leak between the attic and living space.

In the past builders were limited to conventional fiber insulation which is designed to delay heat loss but cannot air seal.

Today it is common for energy codes to require a combination of air sealing and insulation to help seal in heat during the winter and out during the summer.

St Louis Insulation offers a full range of attic insulation heat management and air sealing services as well as roof ventilation systems leak repair and more.

Why waste your money paying for extra electric and gas services that you might not need or feel uncomfortable in your own home?

5 Signs That It is Time to Upgrade Your Attic Insulation

  • To find out if you have enough attic insulation, measure the thickness of the insulation in several areas of the attic.

    If it is less than R-38 (Approximately 14 inches of loose fill insulation), you could likely benefit by adding more attic insulation.

  • Insulation materials performance is rated by R-Value.

    R-Value is a measure of and building materials ability to delay heat traveling through it.

    The higher the R-Value the more effective the insulation.

    The U.S. Department of Energy recommends insulating your attic to a minimum of R38 in St Louis which is approximately 14 inches of loose fill insulation.

    If you can see your floor joists, you do not have nearly enough insulation in your attic and you are throwing your money away.

  • Did you that almost half of the monthly utility bill in a typical home comes from running your heating and cooling system?

    Insulation, air sealing and blocking air movement between the conditioned living space and the unconditioned attic will results in the conditioned air remaining in the home longer which allows for it to be reclaimed by the system for re heating or cooling, as necessary.

    This allows for the system to run less and for shorter amounts of time which saves energy and unnecessary wear and tear on the heating and cooling systems.

    Unless your home was specifically designed to be energy efficient, you could be throwing hard earned money away by paying for electric & gas services that you might not need.

  • Air infiltration from outside is the main cause of cold and drafty rooms.

    In the winter, cold outside air leaks through gaps in your home's exterior which causes the heat to rise at a faster rate and escape through the ceiling which can cause your heating system to run more frequently to keep up.

    This leads process causes the heating system to run more often and for longer which leads to higher energy bills & an uncomfortable home.

    Air sealing your attic and maintaining a even blanket of insulation can decrease your utility costs & make your home immediately more comfortable, efficient and healthy.

  • Insulation delays the exchange of heat through surfaces likes walls, attics, floors, and ceilings no matter the weather.

    People often think of insulation as a material to keep us warm, but the fact is insulation helps keep us cool too!

    In the summer heat works to enter your home wherever it can which forces the cold air from our air conditions down to the lowest point of the home.

    This process results with the air conditioning system to run more often and longer to keep us cool.

    A good seamless and even layer of attic insulation and air sealing helps delay the heat from entering and results in the cooler air staying in the home longer which allows the AC to run less and for shorter periods of time.

    If your heating and cooling system seems to be running all the time, you could benefit from adding insulation to your home.
