With the harsh, cold Illinois winter upon us, keeping our home warm and cozy can put a strain on our monthly budget. Did you know that properly insulating your home could lower your annual heating and cooling bill by up to 15 percent? If your home is not well insulated, warm air can easily escape from your home in the winter, resulting in a costly heating bill. Since heat rises, having your attic insulated is especially important during the winter season.
Typically a small and tight space, attics are sometimes challenging to insulate. With the AttiCat Expanding Blown-In Insulation System, a new product line at Fischer Lumber, insulating your attic has never been easier. AttiCat Blown-in Insulation is both quick and easy, as it is a self-feeding system that distributes the insulation into the tightest spaces of your attic. Since the machine does all of the work, it is a safe, reliable process with no clean up. Not only will AttiCat insulation keep your home warmer during the winter and cooler during the summer, it also will control your attic’s humidity levels. Keeping your attic’s humidity to a minimum will highly decrease the chances of mold growing in your home. Insulation also prevents your HVAC system from being over run and needing costly maintenance services or replacement.
