Attic insulation is one of the easiest home improvements that delivers the largest financial savings. Insulation helps to keep the heat inside of your home, without letting it escape through the attic, which helps to reduce your monthly energy costs!
Not only will insulation extend the life of your heating and cooling equipment, but it helps to protect your roof and gutters. Choose Dust Busters for all of your insulation needs and make your home a more comfortable environment to live in!
Insulation levels are specified by R-Value. R-Value is a measure of the insulation’s ability to resist heat traveling through it. The higher the R-Value, the better the thermal performance of the insulation.
In Michigan, the recommended insulation levels for an attic is R49. This equates to 15-18 inches of insulation, depending on what materials are installed.
Most Michigan homes have less than an attic R-Value of R19 (under 6 inches). The homeowner’s we’ve worked with have experienced a significant savings on their energy bills.

At Dust Busters, we install fiberglass and cellulose insulation. Fiberglass is made up of about 35% recycled content. Cellulose is made up of 80% recycled newspaper and 20% fire retardant chemicals.
Fiberglass is made from sand and other inorganic materials and is naturally noncombustible. Cellulose is heavily treated with fire retardant chemicals prior to installation. Both are completely safe for you and your home.
