What if you could make one home upgrade and start enjoying a wide range of benefits, including greater overall indoor comfort, more efficient home heating and cooling, lower energy bills, and fewer ice dams and icicles on the roof in the winter?
You can when you upgrade the attic insulation in your home. As the Mid Coast and Southern Maine energy efficiency expert, we help homeowners from Rockland down to Portland increase home efficiency and comfort with professional attic insulation services.
How Attic Insulation Works
Insulation stabilizes indoor temperatures by controlling the way heat moves through your home. In the winter, attic insulation keeps naturally rising indoor heat from entering the attic and escaping through the roof, so that valuable heat stays in your living spaces where it belongs. Meanwhile, in the summer, it keeps unwanted outside heat from seeping down into your home through the attic.
When you have an experienced professional insulate your attic, you can expect whole-home benefits like:
Consistent temperatures from room to room
Greater indoor comfort year-round
Less need to run heating & cooling equipment
Lower annual heating & cooling costs
Greater home energy efficiency
Prevention of ice dams in the winter
Plus, here in Maine, attic insulation qualifies for valuable incentives from Efficiency Maine — up to $3,500 in rebates, to be exact!
The Best Types of Insulation for Attics
Blown-in Cellulose Insulation
Cellulose is an eco-friendly non-toxic insulation material made from recycled newspaper, which has been treated for fire, mold, and pest resistance. It may be installed in loose form or densely packed into cavities to minimize air leakage. For customers who do not use their attics, we install blown-in cellulose along the attic floor -- with added depth to provide superior soundproofing and accommodate settling, For homeowners who desire useable space, we can densely pack the cellulose under the attic floorboards or into the rafter cavities.
Air Sealing with Spray Foam Insulation
Cellulose is the primary insulation material we use in attics. However, before installing the cellulose, our insulation specialists apply spray foam to any holes, cracks, and gaps to further eliminate air leakage. This vital step helps your attic insulation work more effectively and is critical in preventing ice dams from forming on your roof.
