Most Washington residents have experienced the agony of being caught outside in the wind and the rain with a skimpy coat or no coat at all. The chill and the rain usually leaves you feeling cold and miserable. Attic insulation is like a nice coat for our home, helping to regulate temperatures inside and block the transfer of energy outside. If the insulation is old, thin, or flat, it cannot properly do its job.
At Clean Crawls, we provide attic insulation services for homeowners throughout Seattle, Bellevue, Tacoma, Everett, Redmond, and Renton. After selecting a suitable insulation for your attic, our team can efficiently and carefully help you install new insulation.
Insulation serves a number of great purposes beyond just regulating the temperatures in your home. When coupled with a thorough attic air sealing, many homeowners have also enjoyed reduced heating and cooling expenses as a result of their insulation’s ability to sustain comfortable temperatures. Other benefits to attic insulation and attic sealing include:
If your attic insulation is insufficient or old, you can contact your local insulation company about getting it restored or replaced. Once the job is finished, you and your family can enjoy the incredible benefits associated with powerful attic insulation.
Many people think that, because they have some insulation in their attic, they should be enjoying these great benefits. In reality, the type and amount of insulation in your attic is what determines how effective it is at sealing and regulating the energy in your home.
Insulation functions by trapping air in billions of tiny pockets. If these pockets become flattened or full of water and dirt, it is no longer equipped to be effective at insulating your home. Animals enjoy shredding and destroying insulation, which also makes it incapable of insulating properly. Without proper insulation, all the benefits listed above become problems that you must address.
By replacing or restoring your attic insulation, you can equip your home with the tools it needs to fight the winter cold and block the summer heat. Our team at Clean Crawls can inspect your attic insulation and help you choose an affordable and effective solution.
There are different types of insulation on the market today. When choosing a type of insulation, the one common denominator that determines insulation’s value is its R-value. The term R-value stands for resistance, the insulation’s ability to resist the transfer of energy. Insulations with a high R-value are going to be the insulations that serve your home the best.
