Attic Insulation Services in Winnipeg
At Warm Home Insulation, we know that 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.
We provide attic insulation services in Winnipeg that minimize the outside air from entering your homes and driving up your energy bills. Not only that, but our attic insulation services protect the structure of your attic from damage.
Properly insulating your attic is critical for several reasons. 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.
The insulation in your attic can suffer from damage. The damage might result from regular wear and tear or issues such as the effect of moisture. Regardless of the reason for its deterioration, you must replace your insulation quickly. Some signs that you might need to replace your attic's insulation are:
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.
There are various types of insulation available for your attic. You can get your attic insulated using 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 that are located throughout the attic space. There is also the option of spray foam insulation, which is typically used in the hard to insulate areas. We can use spray foam as a vapor barrier, and it’s a higher R-value per inch compared to traditional insulation.
Attic insulation is a must to ensure your family's comfort and protect your home's structure. If you'd like to discuss your attic insulation options in Winnipeg or make an appointment, please get in touch with us.
