Insulation is vital in any home, not only does it provide comfort but it protects as well. Not a lot of people are aware of the amount of work it involves and you don’t just have to plan for the cost and type of insulation being used, you also have to take into consideration the time of year to have it done. Our attic insulation team are available year round, but there are some ideal times which we will discuss in this post.
The Best Time of Year For Attic Insulation
Here in Ireland, we have what would be considered a cold climate and therefore the best time to insulate your attic, be it in a new or existing house, is before the cold weather hits. This means summer is the best time of the year. Your house will be warmer and cosier by the time winter and the colder weather arrives. Attics can be very small and pokey too and during the winter they can be quite stuffy because you’ll need to have your heating on. It makes more sense to carry out the job during the warm weather when heating isn’t required and it makes it more bearable for the person insulating the attic as well.
The Easiest Time For Attic Insulation
The easiest time to have your attic insulation done is when work is being carried out in your home. If you’re adding an extension, remodelling a room, or just upgrading your current attic insulation our roofing contractors can carry out an inspection and tell you exactly how much insulation you’ll need and advise on the best type of insulation too. Some homes have very small and tight attic spaces and getting in and out of them can be a chore. Older homes will have poor quality insulation too and upgrading this can make a big difference in terms of drafts and heat throughout your home.
Attic Insulation and Energy Saving Costs
Having your attic insulation ensures that energy and heat are not lost. Thousands of homeowners waste hundreds of Euro every year heating homes that lose valuable heat because of poor insulation. Having proper attic insulation not only save your money, but it keeps your home warmer for longer too. Drafts and poor insulation are the number one cause of heat loss in many homes around the country and if you have an older property the chances are you could do with upgrading your attic insulation or even just adding to it. With heating prices rising year on year, there has never been a better way to invest in some saving than by insulating your attic.
