This is why heat leaks are the largest and most frequent in this area. However, it is also the insulation of the attic is often neglected by the owners. Converted or lost attic space, it is possible to achieve more than 30% energy savings with good insulation. Insulating attics has many advantages.
There are many factors that can make a home uncomfortable, including draft and heat loss. By alleviating these problems, that is to say by bringing a user-friendly interior temperature thanks to the elimination of heat losses and by guaranteeing the airtightness of the roof, roof insulation improves the thermal comfort inside a house.
It is not only the thermal comfort which is improved by the insulation of the roof spaces. By choosing insulating materials, such as blowing wool or roller wool, the acoustic comfort is also optimized. Noise pollution is reduced.

Reduce the energy bill
Insulating the attic reduces the energy bill by up to 30%. In fact, heat loss is the cause of overconsumption of energy. By blocking the heat so that it stays inside the house, the insulation of the attic allows to gain between 1 and 3 ° C. By changing the setting of your thermostat, you can lower your energy consumption while continuing to benefit from the same thermal comfort.
Insulating the attic does not only conserve heat in winter. It also protects the accommodation from the heat of summer. The outside hot air is blocked by the insulation.

- It offers optimal thermal performance: cellulose wadding performs better than other insulators, such as glass wool. Its resistance coefficient is 7 m²K / W for a thickness of 30 cm.
- Cellulose wadding does not pose a health risk: it is a healthy insulation that does not contain brittle fibers, asbestos, aldehyde or other toxic substances. The treatment he received also prevents the formation of mold.
- It is an insulator that guarantees your well-being and safety: newsprint is treated to resist fire and repel rodents and vermin.
