Attic Insulation Eden Prairie MN

Eden Prairie Minnesota Attic Insulation

A comfortable home – warm in winter and cool in summer is a major priority for most homeowners . . . and they pay for it!  Heating and cooling account for approximately 60 to 80 percent of the average Minnesota household’s energy costs. Yet in most cases, such high costs are not necessary.

Stop throwing your hard earned money out the window! Since heating and cooling account for the majority of energy costs in homes throughout the United States, in a climate like Minnesota’s, insulating your attic is a must!

Although current energy prices are relatively low, they will almost certainly increase significantly in the future. And because few homes are insulated to optimal levels, you may want to investigate the levels in your home to help you decide if adding more insulation would save money.

You probably don’t think about insulation very much because you don’t actually hang out up in to your attic very often.  But, it’s imperative that you insulate it properly. Even if your attic already has insulation, is it the right amount?

The recommendations for R value in insulation in our area is anywhere from R-38 to R-60. This translates into a 18” thick blanket of insulation for the minimal thickness of R-38 to a maximum of 22” thick for an R-60. Now of course not everyone can add this much insulation to their attics, but this is what is recommended.

A Minnesota attic insulation installer can help you find out. The best part?  By adding Owens-Corning Expanding Blown-In Fiberglass Insulation, your home will be more comfortable year round and you’ll notice lower energy bills by as much as 40% as a result!

Owens-Corning Expanding Blown-In Fiberglass Insulation

  • Mess Free – low dust, expansion is done completely in the machine.
  • No settling – Owens Corning insulation maintains its insulating power over time.
  • Expanding insulation is non combustible.
  • Expanding insulation is mold resistant, noncorrosive and does not absorb moisture.

Expanding Insulation works on the principle of trapped air pockets. Tiny air pockets trapped in the insulation resist the passage of heat flow- heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer.
