ATTIC INSULATION SERVICES IN WINNIPEG

UPGRADE YOUR ATTIC INSULATION IN WINNIPEG

At Warm Home Insulation, we know what comfortable temperatures in your home mean: steady heat in the winter and consistent cooling in the summer. However, you might be struggling to achieve this, despite installing premium furnaces and air conditioners. Fortunately, we have a solution for you. The only way to ensure optimal temperatures in your home is to insulate all areas, including your attic, properly. A poorly insulated attic provides a lot of room for cold and warm air to escape from your home and make it uncomfortable and drafty. 


That's where we come in! Our team of experts specializes in providing top-quality attic insulation services in Winnipeg. Our work minimizes the outside air from entering your homes and driving up your energy bills and protects your attic's structure from damage. 

 

What sets us apart is that we can insulate attics of various types. Whether you have a scuttle attic or an unfinished attic, we can help. Our team will personalize the type of insulation used to fit your property's needs. Contact us today to schedule your appointment!

WHY SHOULD YOU INSULATE YOUR ATTIC?

Properly insulating your attic is a crucial component of a well-insulated home. First, an uninsulated attic provides several channels for outside air to enter your home and disrupt its temperature. The presence of outside air places an increased amount of stress on your heating or cooling equipment. 


Second, an uninsulated attic is a threat to your home's structural integrity, both in the summer and winter. When warm air from outside in the summer months meets your attic's cool surface, it leads to condensation and could result in mould formation. Moreover, the escape of hot air from your roof in the winter melts the snow on its surface, making ice dams that damage your home's top structure. When you don't properly insulate your attic, you risk damaging your home.

WHEN SHOULD YOU REPLACE YOUR ATTIC'S INSULATION?

Insulation can be damaged by leakage in the roof, condensation and mould or rodent infestation. Regardless of the reason for its deterioration, you must replace your insulation quickly. Here are some signs to look out for:

  • Fluctuation of your home's indoor temperature

  • Water staining on your ceiling

  • Moisture in your attic

  • Draft inside your home

  • Pest infestation in your attic

 

In some cases, our team installs insulation above the older one or on new surfaces. However, complete attic replacements are more common. In these scenarios, we have to remove the attic's previous insulation to install new insulation. When you book an inspection with us, our team will come to your property to determine whether you require an attic insulation replacement. To learn about when to replace your attic insulation, you can read our blog on the topic.

When it comes to attic insulation in Winnipeg, we use a variety of solutions, such as:

  • Loosefill insulation : This has many benefits and is often the first choice for homeowners. Loosefill insulation can be applied over existing insulation; it doesn’t have any gaps or seams in the system and insulates nicely around trusses, plumbing stacks and other protrusions throughout the attic space. The two types of loosefill insulation are:

    • Blown cellulose insulation : Blown cellulose insulation is a paper-based product that we mechanically blow into empty areas in your attic's structure to control heat transfer. This product is treated with mold resistant and rodent repelant properties.

    • Blown fibreglass insulation : Blown fibreglass insulation consists of loose fibreglass that we spray using a blower. If installed correctly, blown fibreglass doesn't leave any cracks, and it is easy to install it in attics.

  • Spray foam insulation : This requires us to install spray foam on your walls, flooring and ceiling using a spray gun. This type of insulation creates air/vapor barriers even in the tiniest cavities and doesn't leave any gaps.
     

  • Hybrid System : Sometime it makes more sense to use a combination of loosefill insulation and spray foam in the attic spaces. This is what we call a Gold Package. We capitalize on the advantages of the air/vapor barrier and the high R-value/inch of the spray foam in conjunction with the blanket effect and economical pricing of the loosefill insulation.

THE BENEFITS OF EFFICIENT ATTIC INSULATION

Over the years, we have helped many clients achieve optimal home temperatures by insulating their attics. The benefits of properly insulating your attic include:

 

• Protection of your home's structure
Insulation prevents moisture formation and the resulting damage to your attic's structure. 

 

• Comfort
An insulated attic prevents warm air from entering your home in the summer and keeps chilly drafts out in the winter.

 

• Reduction of energy costs
Insulation drives down your heating and cooling costs by preventing heated or conditioned air from leaving your living space. This will minimize the fluctuating interior temperature.

 

• Protection of your heating and cooling equipment
The constant presence of outside air places increased stress on your heating and cooling equipment. Attic insulation helps prevent this by serving as a barrier against this air.
