Learn why it's important have your attic insulated properly to avoid having a cold, drafty home.
Attic insulation is the primary concern for energy efficiency in most homes. High utility bills and rooms that are too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter are just a few signs that your attic may not be properly insulated. Upgrading attic insulation is a simple, cost-effective way to improve comfort. Having adequate attic insulation can also cut heating and cooling costs by as much as 40 percent.

If your home was built before 2012 building codes were adopted in your city, you most likely only have a fraction of the insulation you need. In Greater Kansas City and surrounding areas, the recommended minimum R-Value in an attic is R49. That is about 14 inches of Cellulose or 18 inches of Fiberglass. If you have 12 inches or less, or have insulation that is installed unevenly, you will likely benefit from adding more. If you are having trouble with areas of your home getting too hot, or too cold, or are just not sure what to look for, give us a call, and one of our weatherization professionals will inspect your attic for free.
Sealing air leaks and adding insulation can help:
The attic is typically the biggest source of energy loss in a home. Installing the right amount of insulation and sealing air leaks can make a big difference in your energy bills and comfort.
Insulation levels and thermal performance are measured by R-Value. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation's ability to resist heat flow.
Many homes have as little as 9 in. of attic insulation in regions where the U.S. Department of Energy recommends 16 in. It is recommended that most homes in Kansas have between R-49 and R-60 of attic insulation, depending on the insulation material.
Air sealing is a critical step when insulating an attic because sealing air leaks stops conditioned interior air from leaking into the attic. Air sealing can prevent attic mold and significantly reduce heating and cooling bills. Green Factor Insulation uses a variety of materials and techniques to stop this energy-wasting air leakage.
