High Performance Attic

The Building Envelope: Part 4

The attic space of your home is a place most people who live theremay never see, however, the performance of this space is very important.

 

Raised Heel Trusses - By raising the heel of the truss at the

exterior wall you allow for the insulation to go to that area at

full height and maximum R value.       

 

 

TechShield Radiant Barrier - Improve you homes efficiency by

protecting from moisture & creating a barrier against the heat

from the sun.

The major things we need to pay attention to are these:

 

 

Ventilation - You need the proper amount of intake & outlet

space both in your soffit and roof ridge to create the chimney

effect to remove hot air in the summer to aid your efforts to

cool your home.

 

 

Insulation - We recommend a minimum of R-40 in this space.
