Logik Roofing has been helping homeowners in North York and area with their insulation improvement needs for over nine years now. With our knowledgeable insulation contractors, we provide homeowners with energy saving products in a timely and professional manner.
Our North York insulation contractors can help you determine how much insulation your home needs to achieve optimal energy efficiency and comfort. Even newly constructed homes in North York can benefit from having more insulation added.
New homes are often built with the minimum required amount of insulation required to satisfy building codes. Unless you requested more insulation during construction, chances are your home is not insulated as well as it could be.
How to Find Out How Much Insulation Your North York Home Needs
The first step in determining whether you need to add more insulation to your home is to call Logik Roofing and schedule an in-home inspection. One of our insulation specialists will perform a detailed inspection of your home by checking several key areas in the attic including:
- Check the attic ventilation system including the soffit intake and upper exhaust
- Check air sealing around plumbing pipes, and attic hatch boxes
- Check for air leaks in your attic.
After the inspection is completed, our insulation specialist will make recommendations on which areas require improvement.
Most homeowners choose to improve the insulation in their attic once they discover the typical 20% savings that comes with such an improvement. The attic is one of the easiest areas to access and improve insulation.
For instance, most modern homes have an attic insulation R-value of around R32. Our typical top up is to R60. The rule of thumb (doors, windows, and wall insulation will also play a factor) is a 20% savings in energy costs (both heating in the winter and cooling in the summer) with an upgrade to R60.
What Type of Insulation Should I Add to My North York Home?
Your Logik Roofing & Insulation contractor will make recommendations on which insulation materials would be best for your North York Home from these three general types:
- Blown-In Fiberglass Insulation
- Spray Foam Insulation
All three insulation materials are probably already used somewhere in your North York Home. Spray foam insulation is great to use around electrical wiring, plumbing line, and vent line openings. Blown-in insulation is great for topping off your attic insulation.
