A home functions as a complete system when it comes to insulation and it is therefore important to look at all areas of your home when looking at insulation repairs or upgrades. While the attic is the most critical area of your home, a well insulated attic will be largely ineffective if there are giant heat loss areas in the exterior walls, basement or crawlspace. For this reason, it is important that homeowners consider each of the areas listed below. Alpine understands that upgrades can be expensive and many homeowners simply can’t afford to conduct all of the required work at once. As long as homeowners have a plan and the right expectations, insulation upgrades can be done over time. Generally, each upgrade will save a homeowner money on their heating costs, which they can use to fund the next stage of work that they wish to conduct. Listed below are the key areas of your home that you should consider evaluating and upgrading the insulation in and a brief description of how Alpine goes about doing that.
