Attic Insulation Services in Baltimore, MD

Attic Insulation
Attics are important for energy efficiency – 70% of energy loss happens through a poorly insulated attic. Energy efficiency is about more than insulation. An efficient attic includes air sealing. According to the Department of Energy, having your home air sealed by a qualified contractor can save up to 20% on heating & cooling costs.

To upgrade insulation in existing homes, loose fill insulation is blown over existing insulation using one of the following products:

Both applications add R-value to existing insulation and create a fresh new blanket of energy-saving protection.

Have a newer home and don’t think your home needs more insulation? It probably does. As building codes increase, nearly all homes need more insulation to ensure they are meeting current standards.   

Upgrading insulation is just one part of increasing attic efficiency. Air sealing prevents airflow between a home and the attic, keeping heated and cooled air inside the home by closing the gaps that leak air. Beyond leaks that can be easily spotted, your home may have many other holes in its envelope that can’t be easily seen. These air leaks are found around light boxes, plumbing stacks, soffit drops, basement box sills and more.
