Importance of Attic Insulation
Simply put, Attic Insulation can prevent cool air from escaping your home or office building and stop warm outside air from coming in. When a barrier is formed between the conditioned spaces of your home and the attic, your energy consumption will be reduced, leading to lower electric bills and less wear and tear on your air conditioner and heater.
Properly insulating your attic with blown in cellulose insulation will reduce your energy costs by lowering the amount of energy you need to keep you home at a comfortable level. When there are changes in the temperature of your home, your air conditioning and heating units fight to maintain. This constant fight makes your home vulnerable to higher energy consumption and energy costs.
Summer time on the Louisiana Gulf Coast can be brutal. Temperatures consistently reach the high 90’s and the humidity is so thick, you can almost taste it.

The Art Of Cellulose Insulation In Your Attic
Naturally, air wants to flow from a warm area to a cold area. During the summer months, warm air outside of your home tries to come into the cooler areas of your home. And in the winter time, warm air inside of your house wants to escape to the cooler outdoor areas. These exchanges of air tend to take place in outlying areas of your home or office building, such as an attic, garage, floor and more. The air will find the path of least resistance to make the exchange and then flow through the rest of your home.
Insulation hinders the exchange of air by limiting the air movement within the home. The still air trapped in the insulation works to help prevent the heat from escaping from one place to the next. Insulation is rated in terms of thermal resistance, called R-value, which tells you how resistant to heat flow it is. The higher the R-value of the insulation the better able it is to prevent hot air from moving from one place to another.
What Else Can Insulation Do For My Attic?
Other benefits of properly insulating your attic with blown in cellulose insulation include improved air quality and protection for the structure. A poorly insulated attic can allow outside air to enter your home, which can contain pollutants and other outdoor elements. Blown in cellulose insulation and act as a large filter in your attic.
In addition, moister can cause problems to the structure of your home by seeping into your attic. Cellulose is the only insulation that actually manages moisture. Moisture moves by two transport mechanisms: air movement and diffusion. Of these two, air movement is the more significant; accounting for over 98% of the total, and it is the primary cause for moisture related building failures. Cellulose insulation in your attic will reduce the movement of air.
