Attic Insulation

Larry Janesky, owner and president of Dr. Energy Saver, explains how the "stack effect" can make an uninsulated attic a huge source of energy loss.

Heat passes all too easily through a poorly insulated attic. In the winter, heated interior air rises naturally by convection and escapes into the attic through numerous air leaks.

Conductive heat loss through the cold ceiling makes rooms directly beneath the attic even colder.

The problem reverses on a hot summer day, as attic temperatures rise to the 140 degree range and heat moves into your living space.

7 signs of inadequate attic insulation

  1. Rooms directly beneath the attic get too hot or too cold at certain times of the year –even though other parts of the house remain comfortable.
  2. High electric bills and/or high bills for heating fuel.
  3. Cold drafts in certain parts of the house during wintertime.
  1. Recessed “can” lights in the ceiling directly below the attic.
  2. Attic floor joists are visible above or between existing attic insulation.
  3. Less than 10 in. of attic insulation.
  4. Attic ductwork is exposed above insulation layer.

Don’t let a common construction defect make your home uncomfortable and expensive to own.

Do it once, do it right & enjoy the benefits forever

  • An attic insulation upgrade can cut your heating & cooling costs by as much as 40%.
  • Restore comfort to rooms that get too hot or too cold at different times of the year.
  • Make a once-and-done improvement that never wears out or requires maintenance.
  • Improve your home’s green value.

Many houses have just 9 in. of attic insulation (about R-19) in regions where the U.S. Dept. of Energy recommends 16 in. (about R-60) of insulation. How did this happen?

For starters, local building codes only stipulate minimum performance standards, which are far below what home energy experts recognize as necessary today.

Insulation was often overlooked in an effort to cut costs or because cheap heating fuel made insulation all but unnecessary.

Regardless of what caused this construction defect, Dr. Energy Saver has the cure: expert sealing of air leaks, followed by expertly installed new attic insulation.
