Attic Insulation Companies: How to Insulate an Attic
When hunting for attic insulation companies there are a few things you want to keep in mind. Attic insulation companies such as ours, Star Companies, Inc. are more than just insulation installers, we’re the energy experts you need to upgrade your attic insulation!
Whether your attic is finished or unfinished. let’s face it: your attic isn’t the most popular room in the house. Did you know that 90% of attics are under insulated, which is costing you an average of $200 each year. It’s important when searching for attic insulation companies that you hire one that knows what they are doing and won’t charge you an arm and a leg either. Most homes built before the 2000’s are under insulated, causing them to suffer from high utility bills, inconsistent room temperatures, and improper venting. All of which can cause mold and moisture damage.
If you’re noticing your HVAC system runs all day, some rooms are warmer or cooler than others, or your energy bills are higher than normal, your home is more than likely the victim of being under insulated. Attic insulation companies like ours, are here to help. Before you insulate, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends that you perform an energy audit on your home. Luckily for you, we perform free energy evaluations to check your attic for enough insulation, air sealing and proper ventilation. This evaluation includes things like checking your current type of insulation, the thickness or ‘R Value’, air gaps, and venting. If we find that any of these are inadequate, we will list all of our recommendations and provide a FREE estimate for upgrades.
