Better Attic Insulation
MONEY-SAVING, EFFICIENT ATTIC INSULATION
PROTECT YOUR HOME AND REDUCE ENERGY COSTS
Attic insulation can help keep air from escaping your home and prevent outside air from coming in. 50-70 percent of the energy used in your home is a result of heating and cooling costs. Losing hot or cold air in your home makes for colossal energy waste and costing homeowners more money.
Seasonal attic inspection is worthwhile for your long-term investment because it can significantly decrease your bills. As an added benefit, when the frigid Michigan temperatures come back, proper insulation will also minimize your home’s heating bill and save energy
At every inspection we go up into your attic, inspect the condition of the existing insulation and ventilation, and then calculate the current levels. Your attic should contain an optimal amount. Lockhart Roofing will then determine the recommended level (R-Value) depending on the geographical area you live in.
While achieving an R-Value of 38 is optimum in Michigan, anything over an R-Value of 38 is probably excessive. More insulation isn’t necessarily better: It could be impacting how efficiently your attic can circulate air and affecting your ROI. Determining your return on investment (ROI) comes down to dividing the benefit it will provide you, namely your energy savings over time, by the cost of the initial investment.
