Did you know that up to half of the energy used to heat or cool your home or office can simply leak out without proper insulation? Insulation works as a barrier to prevent heat from escaping your home in the winter, while also slowing down heat gain in the summer. With professional crawl space and attic insulation installation, using the right materials, you can start to see (and feel) a number of benefits in your home, such as:
If you are wondering how to install insulation in the attic, or looking to get answers to questions like “How much does attic insulation cost?”, Arbor is the one-stop shop when it comes to home insulation companies here in Atlanta. By assessing the insulation needs of your home through a professional energy audit, we can work alongside you and your family to find the best insulation for your walls, attic, and crawl space. Here are the insulation materials that Arbor specializes in:
Our AirTight360 system offers spray foam performance without the hassle! It usually costs 40% less than a regular spray foam job and incorporates air sealing that will perform for the life of your home.
Usually made of fiberglass, rock wool, or cellulose that comes in shreds, granules, or nodules. These small particles are blown into attics and places where it is difficult to install other types of insulation.
Effective and versatile, especially where space is limited and where higher R-values are needed. Most often used in basement or crawlspace walls as well as on vaulted ceilings or bonus room knee walls.
Radiant barriers are commonly installed in attics, primarily to reduce summer heat gain and reduce cooling costs. The barriers consist of a highly reflective material that reflects radiant heat rather than absorbing it. However, they don’t reduce heat conduction like thermal insulation materials.
Flexible products made from mineral fibers, such as fiberglass and rock wool. This is the most common type of insulation found in walls and floors.
Here in the south, the weather still varies from season to season. From the sweltering humidity of the summer months to the crippling snowstorms that happen once in a blue moon (remember the snowpocalypse of 2014?), the homes of the greater Atlanta area need to be prepared for just about anything.
At Arbor, we make sure to adhere to the latest in building science knowledge when it comes to determining the amount of insulation your home will need. The ability of insulation to prevent heat from leaking in or out is described as its “R-value”. The higher the R-value, the better it insulates.
The R-value you will need depends on your climate zone (see map & chart below). Atlanta residents are in zone 3.
