Innovative Basement Systems Case Studies: Attic Insulation in Delano, MN

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016 by Danielle Wesbur


Homeowners in Delano, MN they were in need of new attic insulation. With the previous insulation not working effectively, they were being forced to pay extremely high energy bills. Their home in particular, had some insulation in the attic however, the type of insulation wasn't efficient for an attic environment. In addition to this, there wasn't enough of the insulation to be effective for the house. Referring to the stack effect, these homeowners were proving the concept to be correct. While still having their previous attic insulation, the homeowners were losing the majority of their home's heat through the attic. As temperatures began to plummet once again, the homeowners wanted to take action and upgrade their insulation to help lower energy bills for the winter to come. 


After listening to their concerns, the Innovative TEAM discussed insulation options with the homeowners. After laying out the pros and cons of each option, the homeowners were able to make an educated decision with the help of our system design specialists. The choice they made was to install spray foam insulation. They chose this due to the fact that it is highly effect for retaining heat and cool air, as well as, air sealing their attic. With owning an older home, the homeowners were aware their attic was leaking air due to poor air sealing. 

Now that the attic is properly insulated and air sealed, the homeowners are enjoying lower energy bills. They're also loving their warmer home during the cooler months of Midwest winters.
