Insulation Contractor That Helps Cumming Homeowners Stay Comfortable and Efficient All Year Long

If you’re like many homeowners in Cumming, you may mistakenly believe that your insulation slows and prevents air flow. While installing high R-value insulation does improve your home’s comfort and efficiency, it does nothing to prevent air flow. Instead, it reduces the transfer of heat, and especially heat transferred from one solid object to another. That’s simply the way any kind of insulation works.

Smart insulation contractors know you need to combine the right insulation with air sealing to get maximum efficiency and comfort.

Common Insulation Problems Found in Cumming Homes

It’s not unusual to find newly built homes with obvious insulation problems. One of the most common to see is improperly insulated attics and attic access doors. A natural process called the “Stack Effect” takes advantage when your attic door isn’t insulated appropriately. You may not have heard about this process because many insulation installation contractors don’t know about it or factor it into their work processes.

With the Stack Effect, warm air rises to the top of your home, and it tries to escape out of your attic through all the cracks and gaps it can find. This creates a natural suction through the bottom of your home, causing cold air to rush in from the outside to replace the warm air that escapes.

It’s impossible to eliminate this effect completely. However, with proper insulation and air sealing from a qualified insulation contractor, you can minimize the effect it has and dramatically boost your comfort and energy savings.

Another mistake insulation contractors in Cumming make includes not insulating crawl spaces. Again, because of the Stack Effect, cold air will seep in through your crawl space’s walls and floor. You need rigid foam insulation properly installed to minimize this effect, and your crawl space should be air sealed too. Rigid foam boards do not lose insulating value over time, and they have a long life.
