Attic Insulation Contractors in Western Michigan
Most attics are already insulated, but if insulation levels are too low, even insulation with a high R-value won’t work like it should. If you look across your attic and you can easily see your floor joists, more attic insulation is needed. The professionals at WMGB Home Improvement can help you make an informed decision about your Lansing attic insulation, and then install it quickly and efficiently.
Seal Air Leaks before Adding Attic Insulation
Air leakage, or infiltration, occurs when outside air enters a house uncontrollably through cracks, gaps, and openings. Most homes have the equivalent of a large open window in combined air leaks in their attic alone!
Many air leaks and drafts are easy to find because they are easy to feel — like those around windows and doors. But holes hidden in attics, basements, and crawlspaces are more difficult and a bigger problem. The EPA recommends air sealing the attic before adding attic insulation to your home. Without the proper amount of insulation in the attic, you could be losing money by overworking your central heating and cooling system and then having to replace the equipment.
