Do you know how many inches of insulation are currently installed in your attic? Most homeowners have no idea. Even if your home was built in the past five years, or less, the insulation in the attic can be insufficient because the minimum amounts required by building codes is not the same as what is actually recommended for superior insulation to stop energy loss.
Most Pickering homes have, on average, about a R32 rating, which means they have approximately ten inches or less of attic insulation, which is minimal protection. Ideally, you want to have between R50 and R60 of protection, which we highly recommended here at Logik Roofing & Insulation.
In addition to having blown insulation installed, our Pickering insulation contractors also recommend to verify your attic is properly vented. Proper venting and insulation are essential to ensure the attic system is functioning correctly.
