Attic voids are tricky. They hide beneath your Attic insulation, out of sight & out of mind. They could be anywhere: above a shower, above a closet, surrounding a cinder-block chimney or simply a large hole that was cut for electrical wiring or plumbing vent stacks. Wherever they are in your attic and no matter the size they pose a problem. They are penetrations in your ceiling vapor barrier. Attic voids compromise your Home’s ability to keep heat and moisture out of your Attic space. They allow heat to rise up from your conditioned living spaces into your Attic. They also allow cold air from your Attic to travel down within your interior walls. Ever had a cold wall inside your House and wondered why? It could be that winter air in the Attic is descending down into your living spaces. Older homes are rife with voids. They didn’t manage air flow to the same extent that we do today. If you have an older home invite IDEAL to inspect your Attic. If it has been longer than 10 years since anyone has added any insulation there is most likely some positive impact that IDEAL can provide. We’ll also provide a full site inspection of your Attic where we seek out potential issues such as attic voids.
