A properly functioning attic is an essential part of your roofing system on your Whitby home. It needs to be vented correctly to allow proper airflow through the attic at different times of the year. Additionally, to stop heated and cooled air loss from the interior of the home, your attic requires the proper level of insulation.
Over the years, here at Logik Roofing & Insulation, our attic insulation contractors in Whitby have discovered most homes in the area have insufficient attic insulation. Why? This is largely in part to the building codes in effect when your home was built. Even recently built homes can be improperly insulated because building codes only require a R32 R-Value rating for attics.
However, even at this level of insulation, you are losing about 25% of your heated and cooled air through the attic. This has a dramatic effect on your hydro and gas bills. By having our attic installation contractors install blown insulation over the existing insulation to an R50 or R60 R-Value rating, you can reduce air loss by as much as 80%!
Imaging the savings this could have on your energy bills! By investing in improving your attic insulation, the cost of the upgraded insulation pays for itself with the energy savings you experience, year after year.
