Insulating with the Super Attic System

In this job, Dr. Energy Saver opted for installing the SuperAttic™ System, because it will prevent enormous energy losses from the ducts and HVAC unit housed in the attic. As a result, this home is now healthier, quieter and more energy efficient.

A properly insulated and air sealed attic is one of the main components of a green, energy efficient home. Because the heated air in a house tends to rise and escape through openings in the upper levels of the building, attics need to be sealed to prevent air leakage. Air leaks in attics are the source of many problems, including ice damming on the roof, and mold. In addition, inadequate insulation causes drastic variations in attic temperatures throughout the year. Scorching attic temperatures during the summer or freezing temperatures during winter make your heating and cooling system work harder to keep your home comfortable. If you have HVAC and ducts running through the attic, the energy loss is even more significant.

There are two options to create an energy efficient attic. You can seal the living space from the attic and blow a thick layer of insulation on the attic floor, excluding the vented, unconditioned attic from the internal building envelope. Or you can use the SuperAttic™ System, to seal, insulate and condition the attic, including it in the building envelope, while keeping the roof effectively vented.

Is your improperly insulated attic costing you money? Would you like to enjoy a more comfortable home and lower your heating and cooling bills? Dr. Energy Saver can help!

  1. so when your roof leaks you’ll not find out because it’s insulated and the
    water drips down the insulation to the outside.

  2. I can see why this method worked in this particular house: Lots of
    mechanicals in the attic, on top of a finished attic deck. Also, it would
    make quick work of converting this attic to live-in space if needed.
    Otherwise, I’m still a fan of traditional attic-deck insulation, between
    the studs that form the ceilings of the rooms below. The attic is merely a
    hat for the house, to keep wind and precipitation from reaching the
    inhabited spaces of the home.

  3. What was done to stop the thermal connection with the sill plate in the
    soffit? How will the gable end walls bays dry out? What is the r value
    again of those panels? Why was dense packing or spray foam not considered?
    I agree with the thermal boundary but bath fans need to be hard piped with
    a negative slope to the outside.

  4. what if your roof attic does not have a ridge vent but two to three roof
    vents in own locations can it still be uses the super attic insulation.,.
