We all want to save money on home projects and adding cellulose insulation to your attic may seem like the perfect do-it-yourself project. Please continue reading before you decide adding insulation yourself.
Working in an attic can be hazardous. More than a few do-it-yourselfers have been seriously injured stumbling over joists or falling through ceilings. Ceiling repairs can be very costly.
An attic must be ventilated to keep hot air from becoming trapped and creating wood rot and mold from forming. Attic baffles must be used to prevent the insulation from blocking air flow.
Barriers must be placed around heat-producing devises, such as chimneys, furnace and stove flues and recess lights.
It is important to seal all holes, cracks in ceiling and gaps at attic intrusions and transitions. If not sealed properly, the insulation will not perform as designed.
Insulation contractors devote their time to insulation contracting services and focus on energy conservation and comfort. The proper installation of any type of insulation is essential for insulation to perform. Knowledge of air infiltration, ventilation, and recessed lighting are just a few of the areas critical to installation techniques. Professional Insulation contractors have access to a wide variety of training, are familiar with local codes and regulations, and can offer guidance about the type and amount of insulation required for your home.
Hiring a professional insulation contractor will ensure the job is done right!
