CLEMENTON, NJ, Oct. 28, 2022 –– Stefan Schulz, one of the senior editors of Attics and More worked closely with Budget Dumpster writer, Rachael Bieschke to provide her readers with industry expert recommendations on how to choose the best attic insulation. This time of year, homeowners and contractors are busy trying to weatherproof their homes for the cold winter season, but attic insulation can improve home comfort all year round. Choosing the best attic insulation for your needs can improve your home’s energy efficiency by reducing your heating and cooling costs by as much as 15%, according to Energy Star.
When asked about the most important factors to consider before choosing your attic insulation, Schulz shared, “if you fail to evaluate things like application type and R-value, your attic insulation might not work as well as you hoped. This can result in wasted time and effort, plus unnecessary expenses to replace the insulation with the proper products.”
The best attic insulation will provide additional benefits, such as:
- Decreased noise pollution
- Better humidity resistance
- Fewer entry points for allergens and insects
- Reduced ice dams on your roof
Attic insulation is a highly cost-effective home improvement project, which can lead to more than 100% return on investment, according to the Insulation Institute. If you’re looking to increase your home’s value without spending a fortune, cellulose and fiberglass insulation can provide significant improvements. Schulz said, “fiberglass and cellulose are two of the most common types of attic insulation, but there are also a number of green options available that use recycled materials. He continues, “Ultimately, the best attic insulation for your home will depend on a variety of factors. But by taking the time to do your research, you can be sure to choose an option that will provide superior energy efficiency and year-round comfort.”
