Attic Insulation for Your Home
Home insulation is a major component of consistent energy savings and comfortable living. However, not all types available are suitable for the humidity of southern states.
A complete system is dependent on proper roof ventilation, attic cross-ventilation, and attic insulation. When all factors are optimized, your home’s energy efficiency can increase exponentially – even in the heat of the summer.
An effective way to boost your home’s efficiency would be to add insulation such as AttiCat® Expanding Blown-In insulation. This type comes in cellulose or fiberglass and is blown into the attic using a large machine. The machine blows smaller pieces, filling up the gaps and providing a complete yet airy layer. Blown-in insulation is tighter and more efficient than using batts or rolls, and prevents airflow from entering the attic. It can also reduce noise transmission. A qualified roofer, like Yellowhammer Roofing, is qualified for professional installation.

We use AttiCat® Insulation
From our many years of experience at Yellowhammer, we recommend Owens Corning’s AttiCat® Blown in Insulation as one of the best options for Southern homes. This insulation type utilizes loosefill Fiberglass™ for its insulating efficiency. Rather than laying batts or rolls, AttiCat® is professionally installed through a hose, enabling it to fill even the smallest of corners.
The air pockets that are formed in the installation process give the material a phenomenal insulating ability. Also, since Fiberglass™ does not settle over time, it maintains its efficient energy-savings R-value throughout the years.
