Stinson Services is an attic insulation contractor in Minneapolis – St. Paul Minnesota. We understand the importance of an effective insulation & ventilation system. The climate in Minnesota plays a large role in heating and cooling our properties. An attic insulation contractor should understand how to properly install your attic system with insulation, air sealing and ventilation giving you a comfortable & healthy home.
3 Basic Elements for a Healthy Attic:
(2) Attic Ventilation
(3) Attic Air Sealing.
These three components of an attic system can greatly decrease your energy usage and increase the level of comfort inside your entire home. Energy Star states that the attic is where you can find some of the largest opportunities to save energy in your home.
1. Adding Insulation to correct levels. Minnesota calls for 17-18 inches of cellulose or fiberglass attic insulation for best performance. This will give you a R-value of 50 that is the recommended thermal resistance for Minnesota homes.
2. Attic Air Sealing is the most important part and often most forgotten part in your home insulation project. Air sealing prevents small leaks, which add up quickly, from causing moisture problems, heat loss and ice dams problems. Insulation companies should never forget to talk about air sealing when talking about attic insulation.
3. Attic Ventilation is a key ingredient to the attic system. The ventilation is comprised of intake and exhaust venting that must be unclogged to work properly. Attic ventilation, when working properly, allows fresh air into your attic system preventing rot, decay and moisture problems from harming your property.
Stinson Services talented staff are continually in search of knowledge when it pertains to mitigating ice dams. Ice dams surface from heat loss through ceiling holes which cause the roof deck to melt the snow on top of your house and refreeze into what we can an “Ice Dam”. Our crews use a blower door and infrared guns on projects to ensure the project is completed to the highest standards. Air sealing bypasses and creates a ventilation system that allows air to move freely, greatly decreasing the chances of an ice dam forming on your property!
