Attics are one of the major heat loss areas of a home. We’ve added more space for the insulation and increased it to an R60 value.
Since much of the heat in a home escapes through the attic ensuring that there is sufficient insulation is important. Attic insulation is typically a fibreglass loose-fill insulation. This means that it is light and fluffy enabling it to trap lots of air. To make enough space for the additional insulation we’ve increased the space for it. This means increasing the heel trusses to 12″.
