Should I Insulate My Loft?

While warm air rises and insulating your loft can absolutely help keep your home cooler when it’s hot outside, don’t overlook it when the temperatures drop! Loft insulation can actually help keep your home more energy efficient all year long.

Have your energy bills been on the rise for seemingly no reason? Does your home feel uncomfortable, like it’s losing heat? You may need to insulate your loft. Call the insulation experts at ThermaSeal / Lakeside Insulation at 800-836-2535 to learn more!

How Loft Insulation Works

In the summer, and in regions that stay warm for the majority of the year, loft insulation works like this: radiant barrier or foil insulation is installed in the ceiling to help the roof reflect, rather than absorb, heat from the sun. This is especially useful for homes with asphalt roofing (which absorbs sunlight easily) and little to no shading from trees.

But how does attic insulation work when it’s cold? Well, attics are some of the biggest sources of energy loss in homes. Heat rises, and it can leak out of your home if your attic isn’t properly insulated. Attic insulation traps heat that would otherwise escape. Thermal insulation materials (as opposed to foil) are used for this purpose—such as fiberglass or cellulose.

Tips to Keep In Mind

For the best results, keep these expert tips in mind:

  • Remove old insulation: Loft insulation can get damaged—from old age, mold, rodents, etc. If you have old or damaged insulation in your attic, our professionals will remove it before installing new insulation.
  • Think about energy efficiency as a whole: Just a few easy upgrades in your home can save you a ton of money on your energy bills and reduce the amount of energy you’re using (many homeowners both insulate and air seal their homes). We will evaluate the amount of insulation levels in your home and recommend a customized solution to fit your needs and budget.
