With Expert Insulation Greeley, we will make sure your job gets done right. We know deciding to insulate your home or business can be expensive, so we are here to make sure the job is done right and for a fair price. We only use industry standard insulation, whereas our competitors sometimes use cheaper insulation made out of poor quality materials that don't last very long and don't keep the heat in your home so you have to call them back to do another job. We are a company that prides itself on integrity.
Attic Insulation, Why?
Insulating your attic is one of the best things you can do for your home. Most people have no idea that this is where their home loses so much heat during the winter. In many houses, especially newer construction, an attic is nothing more than a storage space, so it can get frequently overlooked, and for no good reason. Just because you don't spend a lot of time up there doesn't mean that it isn't worth insulating! With Expert Insulation Greeley, we make sure every nook and cranny is sealed so there is no chance of any warm air leaking out of your home. Attic insulation is so important for your energy bills, we want to spread the word on why you shouldn't ignore it!
How is it put in?
Attic insulation requires a bit more work than other types. Irregularly shaped ceilings often, but not always, make spray foam insulation the best option for these spaces. Since so much heat is lost through your attic and roof, we frequently have to layer up the insulation, and it helps a lot! If you have any crawl spaces in your home, we often do these in addition to attics. It helps to have all your bases covered
Can I just do it myself?
We do not recommend this whatsoever. We are aware that this within our own interest as a company to state this, but beyond that, we have had to repair bad DIY insulation jobs, and we've unfortunately heard of a few cases of people inhaling the insulation since it was not installed properly and having lung issues! This is not something you want to gamble with. Some people think that since attic insulation is out of the way and nobody is going to be there, that it doesn't really matter if it's done sloppily, but this couldn't be farther from the truth. In addition to the health risks, a licensed insulation contractor such as Expert Insulation Greeley, CO, will know the proper techniques to make sure insulation settles and expands into those hard to reach crevasses, rendering your home impervious to the winter cold!
What can I expect this to do to my energy costs?
Every home varies, so many things can factor into your energy costs such as climate, age of the home, shape of the home, type of insulation, time last insulated, etcetera. However, we have seen some customers, particularly those with older homes, that have had attic insulation done, and have seen their energy bills drop by almost half. We make no guarantees here since every case is different, but this is just another example of why insulating your attic is an investment that pays for itself many times over. Even if you don't see as dramatic of a decrease in bills as some customers, you can rest easy knowing that it was absolutely worth it.
