Details Insulation in Edmonton share information on how upgraded insulation can help keep you cool and comfortable this summer:

Upgraded attic insulation will help keep your home cooler and more comfortable in the hot summer months. As the sun beats down on your roof it will heat up the air in your attic. Without proper insulation, that stifling hot air will start to move into your living space.

How do you know if you have good insulation?

R-values are a way of determining the effectiveness of insulation products. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation is at restricting the movement of heat or cold. Newer homes are built to the provincial code, ensuring that they are meeting guidelines for high R-value and are performing at maximum efficiency. If you live in an older home, it’s likely that your insulation does not meet code. Think of all the heat you’re letting in during the summer and the heat you’re losing in the winter! If your attic insulation is rated below code, it’s time to consider an attic insulation upgrade from insulation contractors in Edmonton.

It is noncorrosive and noncombustible. When it’s applied to the recommended thickness and specifications, you can be assured that your home is energy-efficient, with minimal heat loss. Climate Pro is made locally using more than 50% recycled glass, and is chemical free. Because it is guaranteed never to settle, it’s effective for the life of your home.
