Memphis Roofing Tip of the Month: Complete Guide on Roof Insulation



If you noticed that your monthly energy consumption has suddenly increased, there should be some problems in your roof insulation. According to the reports, 44% of the energy consumption of American homeowners is caused by the heating and cooling equipment. If your place is poorly insulated, the heat or cold can escape that will make it difficult to maintain an ideal indoor temperature.

How Much Insulation Do You Need?

The houses that have been constructed in the past may not have an ideal roof insulation. The level of insulation in the past will depend upon the attention provided to the energy conversation while the structure is being built. Most old homes may be lacking in this aspect. In order to find out if you have enough insulation, you should ask your local utility provider and ask them for a copy of your energy audit.

How to Insulate Your Roof Space

The spaces of our roof can be used in various ways and may take different forms. Sometimes, it can simply be a void space found underneath the slate and tiles. Other homeowners will use this as a storage space. There are also instances when this section of the house will be habitable. Our roof will have to be treated in a unique manner. By improving the insulation of your old roof, you can reduce the leakage of the air.

Regardless of the system that you will use, ventilation is important to guarantee the movement of air that will prevent condensation. This will then prevent the decay of the materials and avoid the problem on your structural timber. Before you even start in insulating your roof, you will need to assess the condition of your roof first and be sure that there are no roof leaks.

Insulation Installation on Your Loft

Introducing insulation in the loft is a simple and cost-efficient method that provides numerous benefits. For instance, laying the insulation above the ceiling can help you prevent heat loss. Before you even install this insulation, you will have to complete a cleaning task. Make sure that there are no debris and that the old insulation should be removed.

Thermal Conductivity

The thermal conductivity of your insulation will help you identify its thermal performance. This is described using the K' value. The insulation with the lowest K would be able to resist a higher level of heat. Regardless of which you will choose, it should have the minimum U level which is 0.12W/sqmK. Maximizing the properties of your insulation or that U level is critical. However, choosing the more natural option will help you lessen the impact of your insulation to our environment.

In order to meet your desired K level, there should be more than one layer of insulation that must be introduced in your roof. The layers should be installed at around 90 degrees in order to minimize the possibility of the holes and gaps occurring. To attain thermal efficiency, it is advised to clean the place of insulation first to avoid any damage from occurring.
