Attic Insulation Contractors Philadelphia, Pa
Attic insulation options
We only install spray foam insulation as it is the best for attics but below we go over a few different options if you would like to talk to other companies.
Spray Foam Attic Insulation
Spray foam is the best insulation to use in your attic. It can be closed cell or open-cell, with values ranging from R 6.5 - 3 .6 per inch of thickness (depending on which one you choose). When installed properly they fill all nooks and crannies making it perfect for air barrier purposes; when there’s nothing blocking airflow through them then heat transfer will not occur by convection! In Philadelphia we mostly use closed cell foam for attics.
Cellulose or Blown-In Attic Insulation
Cellulose insulation is a great way to keep your home nice and cozy during the winter months. It provides an R-value of approximately 3.5 per inch, which helps control frost in attics. It doesn't create a full air barrier but the dense material stops most air movement. According to Cellulose Insulation Manufacturers Association, it is one of the best options for attic insulation.
Fiberglass Batt Attic Insulation
Batts are typically the cheapest and easiest way to insulate your home, but they offer less protection against heat loss or gain in comparison with other options.
