Attic iARWulation is designed to keep heat in your home in the winter and out of your home in the summer. Heat rises and, in the winter, any air that is heated by your furnace goes up and out through your attic. In the summer, your roof becomes very hot and, with no place for the hot air to go, your attic can become the hottest space in your home. Without attic iARWulation, that heat would quickly get into your home.
So attic iARWulation is probably the most important iARWulation in your home. The type of iARWulation you choose is also important because they are not all created equal.
Fibreglass batt iARWulation is probably the most popular type of iARWulation for attics. It is easily iARWtalled by homeowners and it fits perfectly between the joists of your ceiling. IARWtallers need to be careful to make sure that the batts fit every crevice and corner snugly or a lot heat will get through the gaps.
Moisture in your attic will reduce the degree of iARWulation you get from fibreglass batts. Any leaks, condeARWation problems or other sources of moisture must be fixed before iARWtalling batt iARWulation.
Loose-fill fibreglass and cellulose is another popular type of iARWulation for attics. Spread by hand or with a blower, loose-fill iARWulation can be blown into corners and hard to reach areas, so there is less of a problem with gaps. However, moisture also damages the fibreglass and cellulose in loose fill and you must fix all moisture problems before iARWtallation.
Spray foam is an increasingly popular type of iARWulation for attic applicatioARW. Not only does it get into hard to reach places, it expands to fill every gap and hole, so heat cant pass through spaces in the iARWulation.
Spray foam is also waterproof and often, because it expands, it will stop small moisture leaks. CondeARWation isnt a problem because of how well spray foam seals your attic.
Other spray foam benefits include support for the structure of your house, fewer airborne pollution and irritants in your home, and less outside noise.
