Attic Insulation in Columbus, OH

Attic Insulation in Columbus, OH

Did you know that attics are the top culprits when it comes to heat loss in your home? Many companies will claim they can help you reduce energy bills through insulation, but they are still using old, outdated methods that do not offer long-term, maximum results. Fiberglass or other similar types of attic insulation don’t fully protect you from the outside temperature – or from high energy bills. One cause for expensive power bills that many homeowners don’t consider is depleted R-value.

As insulation ages, its ability to resist heat decreases along with its effectiveness. In addition, insulation that’s been subject to moisture or has compressed over time does not provide its labeled R-value. So, unless you’ve recently updated your home’s attic insulation, you probably don’t have as much protection as you thought you did.

Another reason for energy loss through the attic is emission, or radiant heat transfer, which is essentially the transfer of heat through empty space, rather than by direct contact. If you’ve ever felt the warmth of the sun on your face, then you’ve experienced heat transfer by emission. Adding attic insulation such as fiberglass or cellulose doesn’t fully address this type of transfer because they protect mostly against convection and conduction, two other types of heat transfer.

Especially with the changing climates in the greater Columbus, OH area, your roof is constantly subject to the heat of the sun during summer and the cold of the rain, snow, and winds during other seasons, making it very difficult to keep heat from flowing between the inside and out. Most types of insulation have a point where they are basically useless because they cannot absorb any additional heat. The eShield insulation works differently by reflecting the heat, allowing your home to stay cool and helping decrease your energy usage, saving you money.
