Pro Quality Home Improvements – leading Long Island contractor specializing in a wide range of home improvements, especially all facets of roofing, siding and window repair and replacement – can reduce your home’s heating and cooling costs not only through proper installation of attic insulation, but also via precise air-sealing techniques. These techniques will also make your home more comfortable.
Other benefits of properly installed attic insulation include, according to energystar.gov:
- Enhanced Comfort. Properly installed insulation minimizes temperature variability indoors, and helps keep rooms warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
- Lower Utility Bills. As much as half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. By preventing heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer, a properly installed insulation barrier reduces utility bills year round.
- Improved Durability. When insulation is properly installed, the potential for condensation that can lead to decay of building materials is reduced, helping to improve the durability of your home.
- Better Resale Position. The improved comfort, lower utility bills and improved durability of a properly installed insulation barrier can translate into higher resale value compared to less efficient homes.
Our technicians are schooled in various brands of insulation. Our most popular brand of insulation is Johns Mansville. With its formaldehyde-free formula, Johns Mansville promotes better air quality in the home. Our technicians will determine what R-value you’ll need to properly insulate your home. R-value is the capacity of an insulating material to resist heat flow, and the higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. R-19 is the popular attic choice; however, we can determine if you need R-30 or R-13.
