If your home is drafty with cold floors and fluctuating temperatures, the solution may lie within your attic. Attic insulation is an essential part of your home that helps lower your utility bills and keeps your home at a comfortable temperature. While energy efficient windows and doors are always a smart upgrade for your home in North Olmsted, Ohio, it’s important that you don’t forget about your insulation.
Choosing the right insulation can lower your utility bills and improve the overall efficiency of your home. Universal Windows Direct is a preferred partner of Owens Corning, offering some of the most efficient insulation available in North Olmsted.
Many homeowners are unaware that 50% of your home’s energy escapes through your roof and attic. This means that the hot or cold air that you’re using in your home can escape, leaving you with higher energy bills and an uncomfortable home.
The attic is the perfect place to focus on energy conservation. When you take steps to prevent energy loss with new attic insulation, you’ll ultimately enjoy lower utility bills and finally end the battle with your thermostat.
AttiCat Insulation, otherwise known as Pink Panther, is available at Universal Windows Direct. It’s inside out fiberglass insulation that’s inserted into your attic using a blowing technique. This is ideal for attics with unfinished floors, since there are many places for energy to escape in this area of the home.
However, during the winter and summer months, this insulation limits the air that attempts to flow through your attic and make its way out of your roof.
Furthermore, this insulation arrives compacted and expands up to 24 times its original size once it is inserted into your attic. Universal Windows Direct uses an indicator strip so we can cap the insulation at 17”.
Even if you have the most energy efficient windows and doors, you’ll still potentially find yourself too hot or too cold if your attic isn’t properly insulated. Maximize the energy efficiency of your home with AttiCat insulation from Universal Windows Direct. Contact us today for a free estimate.
