When to Install Attic Insulation

Attic insulation is a vital part of a roofing system. While its importance is commonly known, it can often be forgotten about as it usually isn’t something we directly see. However, we feel the importance of its role in the comfort we feel in our homes. Attic Insulation is pivotal in controlling the internal temperature of a house. Thus, the system provides many benefits to our homes year round. But, is there a best time of the year to do the installation?

Attic Insulation Benefits

First, let’s look at the many benefits that installing insulation will provide to you and your home. For one, it provides a great return on investment. While there will be the initial price of the installation, the return on the investment will make the purchase well worth the cost by saving you money from air conditioning. Also, you will feel more comfortable in your home as the insulation keeps it at a reasonable temperature. Lastly, insulation helps the environment by reducing the energy a home consumes when trying to heat or cool the house.

When to Install

With all the benefits that attic insulation provides, any time of year is a good time for its installation. However, one of the best times to install attic insulation to reap its benefits is when the weather gets cold. The installation will help keep your home at a reasonable temperature throughout the winter and save money from reduced heating.

If you’re looking for attic insulation services this winter, we have you covered. At Turnbull Roofing & Renovations Ltd, we use the top quality method to provide your attic with the best insulating power. Our AttiCat® Insulation Blowing Machines condition the AttiCat® Expanding Blown-In PINK® FIBERGLAS® Insulation by breaking it up and fluffing it, adding millions of the tiny air pockets that give the material its insulating power. The insulation is conditioned further throughout the length of the hose, and as it bounces its way up to your attic, more and more air pockets are added, increasing its insulating power even more.
