Advantages of Proper Insulation:

  • More Comfortable Home.

    In a poorly insulated dwelling, warm, comfortable air travels up and out of your home and is replaced by cold air resulting from the negative pressure – The result is a draft or uncomfortable space in your home. Whether it’s feeling too hot in summer or too cold in winter, proper insulation will improve your comfort immediately. Ice dams are a common roof performance problem in buildings that experience snowfall and at least a month of below freezing temperatures. The combination of sufficient roof pitch, adequate insulation just above the exterior wall, and air sealing at the wall-roof assemblies transition are all essential to prevent ice dams. But ice dams can occur even in properly detailed roof assemblies from differential solar snow melt. This digest outlines both the causes and solutions to ice dam problems. Learn more about ice dams.

Air Sealing

Sealing air leaks is critical to maintaining an effective air barrier. Without a quality air barrier insulation cannot be fully effective. Insulation is not fully effective unless it is installed properly – fully aligned with a continuous air barrier. An air barrier is any material that restricts the flow of air through a construction assembly. The combination of exterior sheathing and building wraps is the typical exterior air barrier. The internal air barrier is your interior wall finish. Now place insulation inside this wall and if it’s touching the barrier on all sides it will perform quite well.
