The R-value, or resistance value, determines the efficiency and effectiveness of your attic insulation. Therefore, if your attic insulation has a high R-value, its performance and efficiency will also be higher. Some homes already have attic insulation in them, but there could be instances where the existing insulation may have pest damage. To boost the R-value of your attic, you will need to add more insulation to it. Attic insulation not only pays for itself, it is also one of the best home investments you will ever make.
If you want to keep energy costs low and keep your home feeling comfortable year-round, proper installation is paramount to achieving this goal. The savings far outweigh the cost of the materials and installation.
