A home’s insulation is very important in determining its energy usage and performance. If you want to evaluate how you can improve your home’s energy usage and energy performance, Roofs by Nicholas offers a free inspection of the insulation in your home’s attic. According to Energy star, an attic that is insulated properly and fully can save homeowners up to 20% on their heating and cooling energy bills each year. These are substantial savings that you could be missing out on!
When you call Roofs by Nicholas to inspect your roof, we will do a few things. We will check the existing levels of attic insulation to determine whether or not the insulation is efficient. Insufficient insulation can lose homeowners a lot of money through their energy bills, as a home that is under-insulated can lose up to 40% of its cooling efficiency through the attic.These days, energy costs are rising which means heating and cooling a home is becoming more and more expensive. This means that insulation is becoming more important to keep these costs low, both for home and business owners. If you are trying to keep the heat in your home or trying to keep it out, maximizing your home’s R-values can potentially pay for itself several times over the lifetime of a building. There is a staggering amount of products available to insulate every corner of your home, which can bring your home the greatest possible value and efficiency. Estimators at Roofs by Nicholas are familiar with all of these products and can offer you an incredible variety.
Roofs by Nicholas has partnered with the energy efficiency experts at Owens Corning. This partnership provides our customers with one unique new product called Atiicat. At Roofs by Nicholas, we want our customers to maximize their money-saving opportunities when it comes to escalating energy costs. So the sooner you call us, the sooner we will be able to help you start saving money.
You can determine whether or not this is happening by just peeking into your attic. An attic floor should be properly insulated. If you look in your attic and can still see the wood beams on the floor, the floor insulation in your attic is probably lacking. However, even if your floor is totally covered you can’t be sure that there is enough insulation. A good way to figure this out is to measure the insulation at key points inside the attic. A Roofing Professional from Roofs by Nicholas can perform a free attic insulation analysis to determine for sure whether or not your attic is under-insulation.
At Roofs by Nicholas, we recommend an insulation value of R-49 for attic floors. This is typically about 15 inches thick and ensures maximum energy efficiency in a home. Does your home have enough insulation?
If you believe that you need to add insulation to your attic, you can do so with a simple phone call. Roofs by Nicholas will provide you with excellent service to maximize your attic’s efficiency. We will calculate how much insulation is necessary, and then install soffit baffles that will maintain attic ventilation. We will also install recessed lighting covers if and where they are required. We feature Owens Corning Fiberglas™, which we can safely apply over any existing Fiberglas™ or cellulose.
Remember, Roofs by Nicholas Professionals will perform an attic analysis free of charge.
