St. Louis Attic Insulation

Helping You and Your Family Stay Warm This Winter

In many homes, the attic is the primary area responsible for air leakage, disrupting the overall comfort of homeowners and their families. When an attic isn't insulated properly (or at all), you can expect a freezing cold home with an unusually high utility bill.

At Building Envelope Experts, we offer attic insulation and air sealing services to properly seal your St. Louis home's attic. Our goal is to help you reduce wasted energy costs and improve the overall comfort of your home.

Maximize Energy Efficiency with Proper Insulation

One of the main reasons why your house may feel cold in the winter is due to inadequate insulation. Proper insulation is crucial for maintaining a comfortable and energy-efficient home. Our team at Building Envelope Experts specializes in assessing and improving insulation to maximize energy efficiency and indoor comfort.

Benefits of proper insulation include:

  • Consistent indoor temperature
  • Reduced energy consumption
  • Lower heating bills
  • Improved indoor air quality
  • Enhanced overall comfort

Whether you need insulation installation, replacement, or upgrades, our experts can provide tailored solutions to address your specific needs and budget. Don't let a cold house affect your comfort and energy expenses - contact Building Envelope Experts today for professional insulation services.

Why Is My House So Cold in the Winter?

This could be due to what's known as the stack effect: when conditioned air rises and leaks out of the home from unsealed gaps and into the attic. As a result, negative pressure is created in the basement, which then acts like a vacuum, sucking in unconditioned air from outside. During the winter, this causes cold air to be drawn into the basement. 

The stack effect is a significant problem for homeowners, not only because it disrupts the comfort of the home, but also because their heating and air conditioning bills increase as the HVAC system must work harder to compensate for the air leaks.

In order to reduce the amount of air leakage from your home, it is critical to first address the root of the problem—air leaks into the attic. For help, hire our team for professional attic insulation in St. Louis!

“We used Building Envelope Experts for our insulation. They did a superb job, not only adding insulation on top but taking out the old insulation, sealing up any air leaks, and then adding new insulation on top. Not only have our heating needs gone down significantly, but our house is so much quieter now. My kids woke up during every thunderstorm for years and now sleep through them all!

About Our St. Louis Insulation Services

Blown-In Insulation

Just like it sounds, blown-in insulation is a method of attic insulation that is blown into uninsulated spaces through a long hose. Consisting of cellulose, blown-in insulation slows the airflow of conditioned air leaving your home.

TruSoft Cellulose Insulation

Cellulose is an insulation material manufactured from wood or paper with an easily moldable consistency. 

Some of its benefits include:

  • Fire retardant
  • Pest retardant
  • Eco-friendly
  • Slows down air better than fiberglass
  • Higher R-value per inch than fiberglass

Building Envelope Experts uses TruSoft cellulose insulation, a proprietary brand of premium cellulose exclusive to licensed insulation contractors in the St. Louis area.

Duct Sealing

Between 20 and 30% of the air moving through your HVAC system is lost due to insufficient duct sealing. Properly sealing the air ducts in your home reduces the amount of air lost through leaks, leading to lower energy costs and a more comfortable home. 

Additionally, sealed duct systems may help improve indoor air quality and reduce the number of allergens, chemicals, and other harmful air particles in your home. 

On top of all this, it can also protect your HVAC equipment.

Signs You Need Your Attic Insulated

Ensuring proper insulation in your attic is essential for maintaining a comfortable and energy-efficient home, especially in the varying climate of Missouri. Here are some signs that indicate you may need to upgrade or replace your attic insulation:

  • Increased Energy Bills: If you notice a sudden spike in your heating or cooling bills, it could be due to inadequate attic insulation. Inadequate insulation lets conditioned air seep out, causing your HVAC system to operate more intensely and use extra energy to sustain a comfortable temperature.
  • Uneven Temperature Distribution: Rooms that seem overly warm during summer or chilly in winter, even when your HVAC system is running, could suggest inadequate attic insulation. Proper attic insulation helps in maintaining consistent temperatures throughout your home.
  • Drafts and Air Leaks: Sensing drafts or observing air leaks near the attic access door, electrical outlets, or along the attic floor indicates insufficient insulation. These drafts can compromise your home's energy efficiency and comfort.
  • Ice Dams: In winter, if you notice the formation of ice dams on the roof's edge, it may indicate poor attic insulation. Inadequate insulation can cause uneven roof temperatures, leading to snow melting and refreezing at the eaves, which can damage your roof and gutters.
  • Age of Insulation: If your home is more than 15-20 years old and has never had its attic insulation updated, it is likely time for an upgrade. Over time, insulation can settle, become compressed, or deteriorate, reducing its effectiveness.
  • Pest Infestations: Rodents and pests entering your attic can harm or displace insulation, rendering your home more vulnerable to temperature shifts.

Investing in proper attic insulation with Building Envelope Experts can help you maintain a comfortable indoor environment, reduce energy consumption, and lower your utility bills.
