Insulation in attics and crawlspaces is the first line of defense when creating an energy efficient home. At EDGE Energy, we offer home insulation services to help you cut down on air leaks that rob your home of the warmth or cooling you have paid to create.
Insulation in Attics
Before installing insulation in attics, we seal any gaps that could leak air from the conditioned living spaces below. We generally use loose-fill insulation in attics because it provides better coverage and is less expensive than batt insulation.
In the Maryland-Virginia-DC region, insulation in attics should be between R-38 and R-60. “R” stands for resistance to heat flow. The higher the number, the more effective the insulation.
Crawlspaces are typically a neglected and forgotten part of a home. Low levels of insulation, large moisture problems from ground sources, and air leakage are among the three biggest problems that we fix with proper crawlspace insulation. Our method for installing crawlspace insulation depends on whether the crawlspace is ventilated or unventilated. We work with both types of crawlspaces and will recommend the best approach for your specific problems.
