Attic & Crawl Spaces - Insulation

Insulation promotes energy efficiency within your home by helping to keep outside air from entering the home.

Care and Maintenance Tips General Information

  • Your home has been provided with an insulation package designed to meet or exceed your local building codes.
  • Your home is also constructed with house wrap to provide a weather resistant barrier that helps prevent air infiltration.

General Maintenance

  • Attic insulation will settle over time; this natural occurrence is taken into account in planning the amount of insulation originally installed.
  • Do not step on or rest heavy objects on insulated locations in the attic. Puncturing or displacing insulation can reduce its designed effectiveness.
  • Check insulation in crawl spaces and secure any loose or falling insulation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why does it feel cold/hot in certain rooms of my house?
A: Your home has been sufficiently insulated according to local building codes for your area. Insufficient heating or cooling is most likely attributed to operation of your thermostat, registers or heating and cooling system.
