BLOWN ATTIC
INSULATION
R-60-$1.50 SQ FT
The Coldest part of your house in the winter and the hottest area in the summer is the attic. By increasing the insulation in your attic to government recommended R50 or even R60 you can REDUCE the heat loss through your attic by 75-80%. Even new homes can have as little as R32 or less effective insulation.
WHAT IS CELLULOSE FOR ATTICS?
Cellulose insulation is the best performing, most cost effective, greenest and safest attic insulation product on the market today.
Cellulose offers a high, true R-Value of 3.75 per inch in attics. It performs better than any other attic insulation product under cold temperatures. The real bonus here is that it is made with recycled paper fibers.
Our professional technicians blow the insulation in one continuous blanket for complete coverage. Maximizing efficiency of the insulation by reducing the possibilities of air leakage.

NEW ONTARIO BUILDING CODE REQUIRES 18 INCHES OF ATTIC INSULATION,
WE FIND OVER 90% OF HOMES HAVE ONLY 8-10 INCHES, OR LESS!

WHY SHOULD YOU UPGRADE THE INSULATION IN YOUR ATTIC

AS THE SAYING GOES…

“IT’S THE BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK”

Upgrading the insulation in your attic is usually the most efficient
and cost-effective way to reduce your heating and cooling costs.

HOW IT WORKS

1Upgrade your attic insulation to R-60 (approx 18-19 inches)

2Insulate the attic hatch – 20% of heat loss comes from the attic hatch not being insulated. It’s like a hole in your ceiling allowing significant heat loss.

3Install Soffit Baffles – proper airflow in your attic is imperative. At first it may seem odd to add insulation for warmth and then purposely allow cold air to enter the attic through soffit vents, but this combination is key to a durable and energy-efficient home.

HERE’S WHY:

In the winter allowing a natural airflow of outdoor air to ventilate the attic helps in cold, which reduces the potential for ice damming (Snow that melts off a roof from an attic that is too warm and then re-freezes at the gutters, causing an ice dam that can damage the roof). Proper insulation and air sealing also keeps attics cold in the winter by blocking the entry of heat and moist air from below. In the summer, natural air flow in well-vented attic moves super heated air out of the attic, protecting roof shingles and removing moisture. The insulation will resist heat transfer into the house.
