Importance of Insulation in your Home

Adding insulation to your home is a very good investment that can reduce utility costs and improve indoor comfort. Attic insulation is a relatively inexpensive upgrade that has no moving parts. Once the material is installed, it continues to provide savings for as long as the building remains standing, with no additional maintenance or expenses needed.

Fiberglass Insulation Is an Excellent Choice

Fiberglass is the most recognized insulation material. It is made of woven strands of glass fibers and millions of tiny air pockets that work to slow the transfer of thermal energy. We will spray the material until the ceiling is completely covered with the exact thickness and density your home requires.

Our team walks you through the entire insulation process, and we are committed to providing our clients with the insulation knowledge they need to make the best decision for their space, including the importance of R-Values.

R-value is a measurement system used to determine the amount of heat that is transferred through a material over a specific time period. A higher R-value provides better efficiency, which means that total R-value is more important than the applied inches of material.

Benefits of Insulation Upgrade

At Gary's Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc., our professional attic insulation service provides a variety of important benefits.

Benefits to insulation upgrades include:

  • BETTER COMFORT: Homes with inadequate levels of insulation tend to have significant temperature fluctuations, especially in adverse conditions or immediately after the system shuts off. With the proper level of insulation, heat transfer is disrupted, which keeps the living area warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
  • REDUCED UTILITY COSTS: The Department of Energy and the International Residential Code prescribe a minimum R-38. Many homes built prior to 2000 typically have insulation with a much lower R value. Meaning, you are spending more to heat and cool your home, without seeing the benefits.
  • LOWER REPAIR COSTS: Heating and air conditioning preventative maintenance is the most important thing you can do, but adding attic insulation will reduce the amount of time your heating and air conditioning system has to run, which can help prevent stress and wear on vital equipment components. In the same way your car lasts longer with fewer miles driven, heating and air conditioning systems that run less time last longer.
