Attic insulation is an important step in solving problems of home comfort, health and wasted energy (and money). This client contacted us because the temperatures in the different rooms fluctuated a lot. In addition, the old insulation became dirty and unhealthy and accumulated dust, dirt and other unwanted material.
To solve this problem, our team began by removing all the old insulation. Then we sealed all the places such as gaps, wiring holes, hunts and the top of the walls to block any air leaks. It was also necessary to encapsulate the ducts with our Tight 'n True high R-value spray foam system. Finally, we insulate the entire space with TruSoft insufflated cellulose. All these products allow the attic to be completely insulated by blocking all air leaks and controlling the energy released in your home.
An Attic Systems specialist will be able to determine which parts of your attic need to be treated to solve the problems that are affecting the air and the environment of your home.
Theresa from Hampstead contacted Systèmes Sous-sol Québec to book a free estimate because her electricity bill was very high, and her desired home comfort was not reflected on these bills.
As soon as our expert arrived at her home, he inspected the attic thoroughly.
They were many holes in the attic floor that were not sealed and resulted in air leaks. To add to the problem, the insulation used was fiberglass and was in a bad condition and mold was found. Also the amount of insulation was really inadequate to our Quebec climate.
To solve this problem, our installation team went by the expert's recommandation and began by removing the old insulation. Then they sealed all the holes and gaps such as wiring holes to avoid any air leaks. Finally, they insulated the entire attic floor with 17 inches of our cellulose insulation. Our cellulose insulation is effective, safe, environmentally friendly, durable and yields the best results.
All these products allowed the customer's attic to be perfectly insulated and with no air leaks. This change has brought to our client the home comfort and peace of mind she always desired.
