How Attic Insulation Saves You Money

Tired of expensive heating and cooling bills? With average household energy costs in Chicago expected to rise by up to 30% in 2023, homeowners are looking for ways to fight back and reduce their gas bills. The energy crunch is going to be felt most by natural gas users, which is bad news for Chicago, as 8 in 10 Illinois households use natural gas for heating.

This sharp rise in energy costs has steepened the cost-benefit curve of improving your home’s energy efficiency, making adding attic insulation one of the best money-saving home improvement projects of 2023. Topping up your attic insulation also makes your home warmer and more comfortable while adding value and being a selling point for future buyers.

FAQ

Insulation’s ability to stop energy loss is measured by its “R-value.” The higher the R-value, the better the insulation. According to the U.S. Department of Energy and the International Energy Conservation Code, homes in our climate zone (5) should be insulated to R-49 or R-60. We recommend insulating to R-60 to maximize the long-term savings on future heating and cooling bills.

Cellulose insulation technically offers a higher R-value per square inch at the time of installation, but cellulose settles over time, causing it to lose its insulating properties. Blown-in fiberglass insulation retains its loft and will not settle in your attic over time. For this reason, along with the harsh chemical treatments added to cellulose (bad for the environment!) and its messy installation process in your home, we recommend blown-in fiberglass insulation as the best long-term investment.

Add up your gas (heating) and electric (cooling) bills since the day you moved into your house. Now, imagine you had invested in attic insulation and saved yourself 10%, 20% or more on these gas and electric bills, not to mention padded the value of your home (no pun intended) for future homebuyers. From a different angle, how much more would you have paid for a more energy-efficient home? How much more are you paying to heat and cool your home than you could be?

The average payback period of installing attic insulation varies based on several factors, the most significant of which being the quality and quantity of your existing insulation. If your attic insulation has settled significantly or your attic was very poorly insulated to begin with, then your investment will pay back quickly.

Fiberglass insulation is safe for long-term use in your home once it has been installed. Unlike other common alternatives, fiberglass is naturally non-combustable and acts as a flame retardant barrier in your home. It also does not absorb water. It is generally not recommended to breath in fiberglass, but once the product settles, this is a minimal issue (just wear a mask if you will be moving anything around). Because of our installation process, airborne fiberglass product never enters your living space.

Our 2-man crew takes just 1-2 hours to complete most insulation jobs. One person aims the blower hose to “spray” fluffed up fiberglass insulation into the attic, while the other feeds compressed blocks of fiberglass insulation into the blower unit in an outdoor location. The “fluffed up” fiberglass insulation is blown through a hose and straight into the attic – meaning loose insulation never actually enters your home (aka it’s magic).

During our Chicago winters, up to 40% of your home’s heat is lost through your attic – more than any other single area of the home. Attics are usually poorly insulated, yet they are the most accessible locations to insulate for your home.
