Whether you are trying to reduce your energy usage in an effort to save money or your home isn’t as comfortable as you would like it to be, the solution may be in your attic. In addition to providing storage space for holiday decorations or boxes of old photos, your attic is designed to protect your living space from the transfer of heat and humidity.
In order to maximize the comfort and efficiency of your home, it is important to ensure that you have adequate levels of good quality insulation, yet the North American Insulation Manufacturers Association (NAIMA) states that 90 percent of U.S. homes are underinsulated. The team of professionals at Accurate Insulation can help, with expert installation services throughout the Baltimore, MD, area.

Benefits of Baltimore Attic Insulation
While most homeowners know they need attic insulation, not everyone is aware of how much they need or that it may need to be replaced over time. Insulation may become compressed, damaged by water or pests, or shift, allowing heat to escape along with your energy dollars. The benefits of replacing your attic insulation include:
If your attic insulation is missing or compressed in certain areas it may cause some of the rooms in your home to be hotter or colder than others, while a poorly insulated attic may have you continuously reaching for the thermostat. With the right insulation in place, you can enjoy consistent temperatures throughout your living space regardless of how hot or cold it is outside.
The average household spends between 50 and 70 percent of their energy budget on heating and cooling, but you can reduce the amount of energy needed to keep your home at the desired temperature by properly insulating your attic.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
In addition to the cost savings associated with increased efficiency, adding insulation to your Baltimore, MD home will help to reduce your impact on the environment with fewer carbon emissions.
Prolonged Lifespan of HVAC Equipment
A home which is poorly insulated is more reliant on its HVAC system to maintain comfort. By forcing your heating and cooling equipment to work harder, you place unnecessary strain on parts which may wear faster due to overuse.
Residential Retrofit & New Construction in Baltimore, MD
Our insulation experts have the training and technology required to install all types of attic insulation for both new construction and re-insulation projects. Among the products we install are:
- Fiberglass insulation – This type of insulation has been in use for decades and is made from fine glass fibers. It comes in many forms including loose-fill and blown-in, the latter being ideal for attic spaces as it can insulate hard to reach places.
- Spray foam insulation – Spray foam is applied as a liquid which quickly expands and hardens to rigid foam. It can be used in conjunction with fiberglass insulation for the ultimate in temperature and sound control.
- Cellulose insulation – Loose-fill cellulose is made from up to 85 percent recycled materials, has a relatively high R-value, and can be blown into your attic space for increased comfort and efficiency.
- Radiant barrier – Radiant barrier insulation is installed in the attic, under the roofline, and is designed to reflect the heat of the sun and prevent heat gain in your attic.
