eNewsChannels: attic insulation

SEATTLE, Wash. /eNewsChannels/ — NEWS: Everyone wants a good return on an investment, and one sure bet is to add new attic insulation to your home, advises Aaron Zarling, general manager of Eco Roof Service in the Seattle area. “Whether you are installing a new roof or simply want to upgrade your home’s attic insulation, this investment has a proven track record, with no risk.”

The Environmental Protection Agency has estimated that homeowners can save about 20 percent of heating and cooling costs (or up to 10 percent of total energy costs) by adding insulation in attics and air sealing their homes. Over more than two decades, professional building science contractors have corroborated the EPA estimates, based on their actual air sealing and insulation work.

Not only will homeowners stay more comfortable year-round (cooler in summer and warmer in winter), but attic insulation is also a great way to increase the value of your home, Zarling says.

New, Clean Technologies:

Installing attic insulation used to be messy, but now new technology makes it clean, easy, fast, and safe. Eco Roof Service uses the new fiberglass system by Owens Corning, which has no chemical exposure risk and requires minimal protective gear.

“Roofing is a science,” says Eco Roof Service’s Aaron Zarling. “Nowadays, we know the optimal way to insulate attics, and to install the proper roof ventilation design. Combined with new shingle materials, advances in roofing technologies have more than doubled the lifetime of the average roof, while saving money for homeowners.”

Eco Roof Service ( ) provides free estimates on all roofing and insulation services. Angie’s List just announced that the company won their 2014 Super Service Award, which is given only to the top 5 percent of service providers.
