Benefits of Quality Attic Insulation in Minneapolis Homes

Insulation is important no matter where you live, but in a climate were the winter lows dip into the single digits, it’s especially critical to ensure your home is properly insulated. This investment yields many benefits including:


  • Boosts the comfort of your home year round
  • Provides superior sound control
  • Reduces the risk of ice dams
  • Increases the lifespan of your roof
  • Decreases your heating and cooling costs

5 Signs it’s Time to Replace Your Insulation

If your attic is already insulated, you could benefit from an attic inspection and energy assessment to look for heat loss or potential issues. Over time, insulation can lose its effectiveness, and that means you could be paying too much for your energy bills. Here are 5 signs it’s time for an attic insulation update:

  1. Drafty Spots: Don’t automatically blame the windows! It could be inferior insulation allowing warm air to escape and cold drafts to enter your home. 
  2. Inconsistent Temperatures: A well-insulated home should maintain a consistent temperature throughout the rooms of the house all day and night
  3. High Energy Bills: When your home is properly insulated, your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard to maintain a comfortable temperature. 
  4. Wetness or Damage: If you notice moisture on the insulation, it’s definitely time for a change as moisture reduces its thermal efficiency and may create mold or structural damage. Mold and signs of animals in the insulation also pose hazards to your home and your health. 
  5. Ice Dams or Icicles: Ice buildup on your roof or gutters is another issue that may be helped by upgrading your insulation. Ice dams can cause water to seep into your home and create moisture damage in your home’s ceilings. 

Minneapolis Insulation FAQs

These are a few of the many questions we get from homeowners—and we’re happy to take the time to answer them! 

Do I really need attic insulation?

Yes! In any climate, it’s good idea, but in Minneapolis it’s a must in order to retain your home’s heat and keep your energy bills in check.

What is R-Value?

The R-Value is a number that describes the insulation’s resistance to heat flow. The higher the number, the greater the insulating power. In a colder climate, higher R-values are recommended.
