Attic insulation is the most cost effective insulation for an attic or crawl space area. You lose about 25% of your heating and cooling through your attic. Having a properly insulated attic will keep you cooler during the summer and warmer during the winter.
Recommended R-Value for Iowa is R-49, which in about 15" to 18" of insulation depending on type of insulation. If you have less than 12" of insulation in your attic then you should consider adding more attic insulation.
In addition to having proper attic insulation levels, you also need to ensure you have proper attic ventilation and air infiltration. For FREE as part of our standard process we will install vent chutes to ensure proper attic ventilation. In addition, if needed, we will add exhaust venting to bath fans, where needed for FREE. And for a small fee we can offer air infiltration control where we seal visible attic ceiling penetrations. You may be eligible for additional rebates for air infiltration.
