Things To Consider When Insulating An Attic


An attic can add beauty, comfort and value to a home. Whether it's a crawl space that offers extra storage, or a finished living area, an attic can be a wonderful thing to have. Unfortunately, attics can also be cold and drafty. Many attics aren't heated, causing the temperature to go way down when it's cold, affecting the whole house. The opposite can happen in hot weather, making the house hard to cool. Fortunately there's a fairly simple solution, insulation. Attic Stair Insulation can help keep your house the desired temperature and save you money at the same time.

When insulating an attic there are many things that you'll need to keep in mind. The first thing that you need to consider is what type of insulation you want to use. There are many choices available for Attic Stair Insulation and the other parts of the attic as well. Some people use fiberglass attic insulation. Another type that you might want to consider is spray attic insulation. It usually consists of spraying a foam. A third type of attic insulation is blow in. This can be done by yourself on you can hire a professional. Watch out for asbestos, if you find it in your home call a professional to remove it.

Attic Stair Insulation

After deciding what type of attic insulation you'd like, you need to figure out where you're going to put the insulation. Are you just going to use Attic Stair Insulation, or do you want to insulate the door as well? Many people, especially in colder climates, will also insulate the roof because every little bit helps. If you have an attic ladder instead of stairs you probably won't need to insulate that.

When installing attic insulation there are other things to think about as well. Major issue is cost. Remember that you're making an investment in your home when trying to decide how much to spend. Also think about what the best type of insulation is for your Attic Stair Insulation. You also need to figure out how big an area you want to cover and how much insulation is needed. Once you've figured it all out, you can start adding your insulation. You'll be glad that you did.

I was unfortunate enough to find asbestos in the space in my attic when I was insulating it. I got in touch with a company who deals with asbestos removal and they were so professional. I got it removed and managed to insulate my attic and I am so grateful that it was found.

Until I read your website I didn't even think there were so many different types of attic insulation around. I have decided to go the whole hog and insulate the attic and the stairs to make sure that my heating bills are lower this year.
