Attic Insulation Contractors Naperville
Some of the projects we have completed in Naperville include attic insulation upgrades to help homes stay warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Insulation standards have changed over the past decade. We find many Naperville homes are under-insulated.
Also, many homes have ridge ventilation and insufficient intake at the eave. Ridge vents (see exhibit 1) can freeze over and block cross ventilation in certain attic configurations. When this happens moisture can become a problem in the attic.
We have also installed many attic fans in Naperville homes. This helps keep your attic cooler in summer, reducing the demand on your air conditioner, keeping your home more comfortable.
In winter, it helps prevent moisture from being a problem. Many Naperville homeowners have opted to install a humidistat to operate year-round to prevent attic moisture problems. When moisture levels in the attic reach a designated level, the humidistat activates the attic fan, the fan creates the necessary cross ventilation to move the moisture out of the attic. This is especially important in winter and can dramatically reduce the risk of ice dams which can be very destructive and costly to repair.
