Attic Insulation: Blown Cellulose vs, Fiberglass Batts.

Attic Systems dealers have been making thousands of homes across the U.S. more comfortable and energy efficient with attic insulation and air sealing.

Why is attic insulation so important? The temperatures in your attic change drastically in the winter and the summer. Heat radiating from the roof keeps the temperature in your attic in the triple digits most of the season.

If your attic is improperly insulated, your ceiling will become hot and that heat will irradiate through your living areas. In the wintertime, heat moves from your heated living space into your freezing cold attic. Proper attic insulation is designed to stop heat flow between your attic and your home.

For that reason, our Attic Systems dealers will often recommend blown cellulose insulation over fiberglass batts. Cellulose insulation have a higher R-Value than fiberglass, and when blow in an attic, it quick fills all the gaps and nooks.

Fiberglass batts have to be cut to size to fill the cavities and that often leaves many gaps for air and heat to flow through, reducing the R-Value of the Fiberglass even further. Cellulose is also better at resisting the air flow that fiberglass. Cellulose insulation is also treated with fire retardant and insect repellent chemicals, making it overall safer and longer lasting.

Our Attic Systems dealers are committed to providing always the return for every dollar you invest in attic insulation, and that includes recommending and installing always the best materials. With an Attic Systems Dealer you are always in good hands!
