Your attic insulation in Calgary is the single most important part of the insulation system in your house. Upgrading the attic insulation in your home attic is the easiest way for you to increase energy savings for your home and the comfort of your home in summer and winter.
Attic insulation settles over time, and this will reduce the R-value in your attic. Typically, an attic should get a top-up of insulation every 10 to 15 years.
How long has it been since you checked on your attic?
How do you know if your attic needs professional attention?
There are a few different types of insulation you might find when you look at your attic insulation. Wood chips, Cellulose, a dark-coloured dense material, Vermiculite, a product that looks like kitty litter and should be left undisturbed. It might have asbestos and Fiberglass light, fluffy and several different colours, usually yellow, white or pink. Cellulose and fibreglass are great products for insulating an attic. Wood chips and vermiculite are not and should be removed.
Typically for every inch of attic insulation, the R-value equals R2.7. If you have less than 13 inches of material in your attic, it is time to consider topping your attic backup to an R50 depth by adding more insulation materials.
Look on top of the insulation to see if there is any water evidence or if there has been water in the past and is now dried up. Look at the underside of the roof. Is there water staining on the wood? Are the nails from the shingles rusty? If you do find evidence of moisture in the attic space, this could be an indication of poor ventilation or a compromised vapour barrier and should be addressed by a professional ASAP.
