Your home or business's attic is one of the most important areas to ensure proper insulation is in place. Having high-quality insulation in place in your attic can provide you with many benefits. Some benefits to mention will impact your roof. In the winter, heat from an uninsulated attic will escape through your roof, melting snow and creating ice dams. This will cause wear on your shingles and your gutters. A properly insulated attic will also make your home or business more comfortable by making it easier to control the climate within.
Benefits For Your Roof
Many people are not aware of the fact that insulating your attic properly will drastically increase the lifespan of your roof. When heat is allowed to escape your roof it will melt snow and cause ice. This can be very bad for your roof's longevity as it oftentimes wrecks shingles. Ice can also create leaks on your roof. When dramatic temperature changes occur your roof also expands and contracts to a greater degree, this can be harmful to your gutters as they will shift and gutter fasteners can become loose.
Lower Heating & Cooling Costs
Perhaps one of the most well-known benefits of attic spray foam insulation is its ability to decrease heating and cooling costs. Your attic may be responsible for the majority of the air transfer in your home if it is not insulated correctly. It goes without saying that if you are losing cold air in the summer and warm air in the winter through your attic, your utility costs are going to skyrocket. This would also create a situation where you are placing more wear and tear on your HVAC equipment than necessary leading to more frequent repairs or replacements.
Another fantastic benefit to consider when discussing attic insulation is the soundproofing capabilities that it will provide. Attic insulation for soundproofing is generally most effective at preventing outside noise from entering your home. This can be very beneficial if you live near a busy street. For the best soundproofing results attainable, we recommend having spray foam insulation installed in both your attic and your wall cavities. Unlike batt insulation, spray foam insulation creates a very soundproof and nearly air-tight barrier. If soundproofing is your goal, spray foam insulation is the right choice for your needs.
