The cold weather is finally here and we hope it stays outside but if you feel that cold air creeping in it might be good to check your attic, you may not be fully protected with insulation!
Did you know that Hoffman’s is a certified T.A.P. Insulation installer, or Thermal Acoustical Pest Control Insulation? Only pest control applicators can apply this blown in insulation product. We don’t need to remove all of your insulation either. Minimum new home requirements through Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey for attic insulation is only 11 inches, or R-38, while recommended level is 17 inches, or R-60.
The benefit of good insulation is not only felt in the winter time but in the summer time as well. The better insulated your home is the more consistent the temperature is for both heating and cooling. You could save money all year round with a little more insulation. Having energy efficient insulation is the same as having energy efficient light bulbs, appliances, and electronics!
Why T.A.P. over fiberglass or other loose insulation? T.A.P. is actually denser than fiberglass glass and made up of 87% recycled materials. The higher density does a better job of slowing air in the winter, helping to keep the warmth in. Do you live near an airport or the turnpike? The air pockets and compact material also help to give better sound proofing to your attic by reducing the amount of sound that flows through the space.
Before the winter gets any colder, let our certified inspectors provide an inspection and estimate for your property. This inspection also covers pests and termites, can a general contractor provide that?!
