Keywords: Insulation, Fiber Glass, Energy Savers

Upgrading attics involves inspecting the attic to determine the existing type of insulation, age, and depth of insulation. An existing R-value is determined. Currently the Alberta code for attic insulation is R-40.

You will be provided with a written quote and given pamphlets on the products we use as well as information about Northern Alberta Energy Savers Ltd. and a sample of the insulation that will be blown into your attic. You may wish to share the information with someone else prior to making your decision.

Included in our quote is 1. adding batt insulation to the hatch and closed cell foam weather-stripping to the perimeter of the hatch; 2. a waxed cardboard dam is built around the perimeter of the hatch to insure that the insulation is installed up to the edge of the attic opening.

There are several products on the market and one must be informed of the pros and cons of these products. Please refer to* “Comparing Fiber Glass and Cellulose Insulation” *fact sheet to help you to do your own comparison.

The benefit of applying this insulation on the exterior of a building is that the insulation provides a thermal bridge or envelope over the entire exterior avoiding any weak spots in the insulation. If exterior finish is stucco the 3Ht can be applied directly over the stucco using nails long enough to penetrate the stucco into the sheeting.
