Properly insulating your attic
A great source of energy loss and expense in a house can be an improperly insulated attic.
While your attic is most likely insulated, over time that insulation can settle or compact, reducing its R-value.
A breezy attic may also result in drifts or shifts in your original insulation, leaving gaps where heat can escape.
By increasing the level of thermal insulation, you will also absorb sound and reduce your overall energy usage, saving you money.
A simple way to do this is to top-up the existing insulation. Roxul RockFill, for example, is loose mineral wool insulation that can be spread by hand anywhere in the attic. It’s designed to remain stable and not drift, ensuring upgraded thermal protection.
