As strange as it sounds, your attic could be the reason you’re losing money on energy bills. In Orange County, Ventura and Los Angeles, most of the older homes likely do not have proper insulation.

Did you know that sub-optimal insulation lead to loss of cooling and heating? The air escapes through the roof, which makes your HVAC equipment work harder than normal.

Insulation Installation is one of the best decisions you can make for home improvement, more specifically in the energy efficiency department. What most homeowners forget is that their attic needs proper care and attention as well. Quality insulation done by experts will go a long way towards effectively cooling and heating your house for years to come.

As it stands, there are several types of insulation you can get. Attic Insulation Expert can help you make the best decision.

Benefits of Professional Attic Insulation Installation

Big Savings

When your attic has adequate insulation, your home gets naturally warmer during winter seasons and cooler during summers. This means your HVAC won't have to work as hard to maintain optimal temperature.

More Comfort

Attic insulation by Attic Insulation Expert will turn your residential property into a hub of warmth and comfort in the winter and relief during hot summer afternoons.

Pest Control

Insulation serves as a barrier against unwanted pests and creatures. Special insulation can be added to basements, crawlspaces and attics to ward off intrusive animals and insects.

Less Noise

Noise reduction equals a quieter home and beneficial for properties living near roads, apartments and construction areas.

Roof Care

Shingles experience less fluctuation in temperature and allows them to stay functional for a long time. Your roof won't have as much condensation and ice dams as one that has improper or absent insulation.

Types of Attic Insulation

Blown-in insulation is made up of particles that can fill up an attic cavity. Depending on the company, it can be cellulose, mineral wool or fiberglass. It’s a good option for homes that have a lot of small holes in their attic.

Blanket insulation can be made from fiberglass, mineral wool, plastic fiber or natural fiber. It can be customized according to size and fit into rafters or trusses. Some may have vapor and air barriers to minimize condensation and make installing easier.

Cellulose is made from ground-up and recycled paper that have been treated with boric acid for enhanced fire resistance and insect control. Professionals use wet spray cellulose to minimize the spread of dust and increase insulation value.

Spray foam is the highest rated in terms of R-value and largely recognized as a green insulation. Homeowners can choose open or closed cell to create an air barrier, but a closed cell can serve as a moisture barrier as well.

 

It’s important to determine just how much insulation your attic has before attempting to fix it. Older properties tend to have little or none as compared to recently built homes. You can never have too much insulation, as even newer homes can benefit from energy savings it can bring.

An insulation’s effectiveness is determined by its R-Value. In technical terms, R-Value is the insulation material’s ability to resist cold or hot air passing through.

 

The climate of where your home is will also determine whether the R-Value of an insulation is sufficient or lacking. The levels are measured to help keep your property at a comfortable temperature consistently.
