Insulation Installation and Home Comfort

 

Are areas in your home freezing cold in the winter and super-hot in the summer? Or just looking to improve your homes energy efficiency and comfort? the attic should be at the top of your priority list. Insulation and air sealing in the attic have a dramatic effect on the home's overall energy performance, and upgrades in this area can lead to significant savings on heating and cooling costs. 

Most homes in Michigan have R-30 (just under 10 inches) which was the previous code. With increasing to the current code of R-49 (approx. 15 inches) our homeowners experience significant savings on their heating bills and savings on their electric bills during the summer months when air conditioning is used. Think of your home like a large bag surrounding your living environment. If you turn your furnace or air conditioning off how long will the hot or cold air stay within your home? The more thermal barrier to the outside environment you have the less your equipment will run saving you money and increasing comfort

 

How the attic impacts home comfort

 

Cellulose insulation can be installed over existing insulation without interfering with your storage area

About 50% of energy costs are typically attributed to heating and cooling, making it one of the biggest expenses for many homeowners. The attic has a major impact on home efficiency for several reasons:

  • Air leaks and drafts between attic and living space
  • Air leaks and drafts between attic and outdoors
  • Poor or incorrect ventilation
  • Insufficient attic insulation
  • Uninsulated ductwork in the attic

Best methods for improving attic efficiency

 

Air sealing: The first step to improving attic efficiency is air sealing. Your attic is full of gaps and cracks that allows conditioned air to escape from the living space into the attic and unconditioned air to enter from the outside. Sealing these air leaks helps to keep your attic isolated from the outside and keeps conditioned air inside your home.

 

Attic insulation: Many attics are lacking proper insulation, which is one of the biggest causes of energy waste and uncomfortable rooms. Raising attic insulation to proper levels prevents heat transfer between the attic and the living space, meaning your HVAC system will run less because conditioned air is being contained in the areas you want to heat and cool.

 

Ductwork services: If you have ducts in your attic, they are affected by the extreme hot and cold temperatures that occur in that space. When you try to send cold air through hot ducts or vice versa, the air in the ducts is heated in summer (and cooled in the winter), making it difficult to heat or cool your home. Having ducts in attics is extremely inefficient, which is why duct sealing and duct insulation are smart upgrades for homeowners with ductwork in the attic.

 

HVAC never turns off in the summer or winter in Farmington Hills, MI

  The homeowner had just purchased the home and during the inspection, mold was found on the roof sheathing being caused by bath fans that were exhausting into the attic space. She had noticed that the home was warm during the summer when she had purchased the home despite the HVAC running.

  The homeowner chose our company because we were able to deliver a proposal and solution at the time of the inspection that would improve the health of the attic along with the energy efficiency of the home that would make the rooms warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer upstairs while reducing the amount of time the HVAC would be active. Our solution was to increase the ventilation in the attic by installing baffles after removing the insulation covering the soffits allowing the soffits to breathe that were previously blocked with existing insulation.  We then treated the attic with Mold X2 products and then got the current R19 insulation on the attic floor to a much more comfortable and energy-efficient R60.

  The products we used were Mold X2 to remediate the mold. Durovent duel baffles were placed into the eaves. SilverGlo expanded polystyrene foam board, to insulate the scuttle and weatherstripping to seal the scuttle.  We blow in TruSoft Stabilized Cellulose Insulation to the resistance of R60. The homeowner now has a healthy attic free of fungal contamination and a more comfortable energy-efficient home. Her HVAC is running less to keep up with the warm/cool air loss previously lost to the lack of a proper thermal boundary between the attic floor and the conditioned space below.
