Information on our Attic Insulation

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, heating and cooling account for 50-70 percent of the energy used in the average American home, but that doesn’t mean homeowners have to be stuck paying outrageous energy bills. By having the right insulation system installed in your attic at the same time you install a new roof, you can ensure optimal performance of your roofing system and save up to 20 percent on utilities.

Insulation also provides many additional benefits, including controlling moisture and air infiltration, assuring proper ventilation and conserving natural resources. However, many homeowners are unable to enjoy the full advantage from this barrier because their homes are not properly insulated. In fact, the North American Insulation Manufacturers Association estimates that 90 percent of U.S. homes are under-insulated.

To help ensure your home doesn’t fall in that category, you must understand exactly what insulation does and why it’s important, how much insulation your attic needs, and what type of insulation is the best fit for your home.

What does insulation do?

Heat always moves toward cold, which is why heat tries to escape a home in the winter, and enter a home in the summer. Rooms such as attics, basements and garages is where this air change happens most frequently. Insulation works by trapping air within tiny pockets to resist the transfer of heat, so it doesn’t move into or out of the house through your roof and doors.

How much insulation is needed?

There are a couple of factors that play into how much insulation you’ll need to add to your home. The amount of insulation recommended for you home will vary depending on the climate you live in, the age of your home and how much insulation you already have.

Insulation is rated in terms of thermal resistance, or R-value, which tells you how resistant to heat flow it is. Higher R-values mean greater insulating power.

The U.S. Department of Energy and the International Energy Conservation Code recommends that an uninsulated attic in Zone 2—which includes much of Florida—would require insulation with R-30 to R-60 values. An R-value of R-38 is recommended for most homes, and this translates to about 12 inches of insulation.

Why should I install insulation during a re-roof?

By installing insulation at the time of a re-roof, you can avoid any disruption inside your home and ensure the best performance of your roof system. Additionally, you won’t have to worry about roof leaks that may lead to mold and mildew growth within the insulation.

Quality Discount Roofing has partnered with Owens Corning to offer the Owens Corning AttiCat Expanding Blow-in Insulation System that can be quickly and easily installed in your attic at the same time that a new roof is installed.
