Over 90% of homes in North America are under-insulated. The attic is a key point of insulation failure in most of these homes … and it’s also one of the easiest, fastest, and most accessible to fix — with the help of the professionals at ODIN Energy.
The effect — higher energy bills, more wear-and-tear on your HVAC, and more difficulty maintaining a comfortable temperature in your own home.
If you climb up into your attic, the insulation is the foamy stuff sprayed around the attic floor. It should be loose and fluffy, at least ten inches thick (preferably closer to 14 inches thick).
But if the insulation is settled, it may be hard like rubber and only a few inches thick. This insulation is past its prime and needs to be replaced.
Insulation stops heat from transferring. Think of all the energy you expend running your air conditioner in the summer, or your furnace in the winter? Heating and cooling accounts for the majority of most household energy expenses.
But what stops that hot or cold air, which you spent so much money (and burned so many trees) to create? Your insulation. In the walls, in the floors, in the attic. In a properly-insulated home, it forms a kind of envelope, keeping the interior temperature inside, and the exterior temperature outside.
But what if one side of that envelope is improperly insulated? It’s like running your air conditioner all day with all the windows open. You might as well be missing a wall.
