Attic Insulation for Energy Efficient Homes in Edmonton

Most homeowners have never been in their attic and if they have, they likely don't know what they are looking at. The warm air from the furnace in your house could keep you warm, but as the air rises in your home it reaches into the attic and out of the roof. Many roofing experts agree that the attic could be a point of heat loss in your home. One way to prevent this is by insulating your attic. Although attic insulation is necessary, there are many types of insulation available on the market. Each insulation type has its own set of properties. It is only by researching each type thoroughly, that we can help you find the right insulation type for your property. 


Common insulation types found in the Edmonton area include:

  • Blown cellulose insulation 
  • Blown fibreglass 
  • Blown Rockwool
  • Fibreglass batts
  • Vermiculite (may contain asbestos)
  • Wood shavings
  • Polyurethane 
  • Polystyrene 
  • Aerogel

Like roofing materials, each performs as an insulator but there are differences. As building codes have evolved, so has the required R-Value. R-Value describes insulating material’s thermal resistance, which is its resistance to conductive heat flow. The higher the R-Value rating, the better the insulation is. Today, R40 is the minimum target that we aim to achieve. Many of the older homes with 3" of wood shavings are only insulated to R7. At Belvedere Roofing and Exteriors, we proudly use Weathershield Insulation, a successful product since 1969. It is 100% Canadian made with 86% recycled material to help reduce your carbon footprint.


Weather sheild

There are many issues that can arise from deficient insulation in the attic space such as:

  • Condensation and attic rain 
  • Ice dams on the roof
  • Health issues due to mildew growth
  • Excessive moisture and mould growth
  • Heat gain in summer (causing excessive power bills)
  • Heat loss in winter (causing excessive power bills)
  • Premature failure of roofing shingles
  • Pests nesting and living in the attic

All of these issues can cause damage to your property. The growth of mould and mildew could cause allergies in family members. Improper or uneven insulation can lead to rising power bills. The nesting of pests can be another cause of concern. You can avoid these problems by choosing the right type of insulation for your home. Keep your family safe and warm at all times.

The Right Attic Insulation Material for Your Home

It is important to trap the heat and prevent the transfer of it during cold months in Canada. However, during summer, the very same insulation has to work to reduce the transfer of heat from the attic into the home. If properly insulated, not only will it keep your home cool and comfortable, but it will also save you a few bucks. For energy-efficient homes in Edmonton, it is important to get your attic insulated. 


If you are looking to insulate the attic, choose cellulose insulation that is blown into walls and ceilings, and cost effective when compared to fiber glass. It is also made from recycled materials.
