Blown Attic Insulation in Oshawa to for Your Home
Did you know that you can lose up to 25% of your home’s heat through the attic? Many homes, even those recently built, have insufficient attic insulation to stop the loss of heat. As a result, they use more energy to keep their home set to a comfortable level, which also means higher hydro and natural gas bills since more than half of your home’s energy costs are to heat and cool your home.
In most Oshawa homes, there is only about 10 inches of attic insulation, sometimes less. With 10 inches of insulation your home most likely is rated R32, but it could be less based on the type and quality of the insulation used.
