Home Insulation has the solution for those looking for expertise in attic insulation in Toronto—proper and professionally applied attic insulation, although unseen, is an excellent way to both save money as well as substantially improve the heating or cooling of your home.

The effects of heat migration—the process in which heat travels through walls, roofs and ceilings—is the major cause of lost or increase of unwanted heat in homes. Without proper insulation, heat migration causes heating and cooling systems to be both less effective as well as overworked, due to the lack of ability for the house to contain or keep out heat. As a result, utility costs will increase, as well as repair and maintenance costs for the heating and cooling systems, not to mention the home being less comfortable due to inadequacies in preventing heat migration.

Proper attic insulation has the ability to drastically reduce heat migration through heat conduction resistance—thereby preventing heat from traveling in or out of rooms, making for an evenly heated home and more comfortable environment. Why attic insulation? In Toronto, the drastic changes in climate between seasons makes it necessary to prevent heat migration at one of its major conduits. The attic is where heat migrates from the roof into the ceiling of the house, as well as where heat escapes to the outside during winter. Therefore, proper attic insulation in Toronto will trap heat within or out of the house, blocking the major entryway for heat between indoors and outdoors.

The decrease in heat leaving or entering the home will reduce the workload of heating and cooling systems, saving you money on utility costs as well as repair and maintenance.

Homes with the optimal resistance to heat migration has approximately 14 to 16 inches in attic insulation; if your home has less than that amount of attic insulation, then the heating and cooling systems are working harder than they should be in order to control the temperature of the home.
