Attic Insulation . . .It’s not just pink fluff

It’s summer, and the temperature inside your home keeps rising.  Sometimes it’s not your AC unit.  It could be your attic is too hot and is affecting your home’s overall temperature.  Improper ventilation and insulation at this part of the house can make your air conditioners work twice as hard than it should, which in turn, increases your power bill. Fixing these issues by installing these properly can bring down both the temperature as well as your costs.

Why Proper Insulation for Your Attic Is Important

Building materials transfer excessive heat throughout the home if insulation is insufficient. This causes you’re A/C to work even harder to keep you comfortable. However, it is not as easy as just adding an additional layer of insulation to the existing one.

Air Sealing: Insulation slows down heat transfer from both its sides. Unfortunately, air pockets can reduce its effectiveness by redistributing the heat. This is why it’s important to air seal the all holes before adding more insulation.

Spray Foam: Spray foam insulation on the underside of your roof can significantly decrease attic heat transfer.

Attic Access Sealing: Because attic access ceiling covers normally don’t seal properly, insulating this area helps keep the heat out.

Duct Insulation: Having ducts in the attic properly insulated is important for an efficient system.

How Proper Ventilation for Your Attic Cools Down Your Home

If heat is trapped in the attic, the heat eventually travels down into the house. Having proper ventilation in place keeps this from happening. By installing roof mount solar-powered exhaust fans, you will greatly improve the ventilation in your attic. These exhaust fans start spinning when sun shines on the fan and does not require any other electrical source. Not only does this help your air conditioning system work more efficiently, you also do not add to your power bill by installing this fan.

The R-value concerns attic insulation and how well it reduces the transfer of hot and cold air inside the house. To find out what the R-value of your house is, you must first determine how thick your insulation is. Then multiply the number of inches of insulation by the R-value for your type of insulation. Some common types and their R-values include:

The recommended R-value for houses in warmer climate areas like Phoenix is a minimum of R-30.

Our AC tech was Amer Khudher he was very professional. He spent an hour cleaning out our old AC unit and tried to get us the best deal. Amer spent over 3 hours diagnosing the problem that we are now waiting on a part for. Outstanding workmanship and professionalism from Amer Khudher, despite how hot the working conditions on a roof in the summer can be. I appreciate the compassion he showed my family and I! Great job Amer!

6/18/21 Danny came out to service my 2 A/C units. He was polite, courteous and thorough. So happy I have their maintenance program and catch small issues before potential big problems. Had to replace a capacitor which is not unusual and save me bigger headaches. Thanks Danny! I lika Hobaica!Had RL come out for my semi annual checkup of my system. He was on time, friendly and considerate of my home. Fortunately, I got a clean bill of health. I trust them to be honest and fair. What more could you ask for?

Finally had to replace the old water heater. Scott D. was out a few weeks prior to assess the heater. He was thorough and honest about the current condition of the system. I deferred the replacement until company left then immediately called Hobaicas back and had Scott replace the water heater. They were able to schedule me for the very next day and Scott had the job done quickly and cleanly. Pushing thru the AZ heat reamining courteous and professional all the way. Once again Hobaicas come to the rescue.Great service as always. Friendly, courteous and quick. Always great to deal with anybody for any reason at Hobaicas.

Huge THANK YOU to your company and to your service tech, Justin D! When I called, they were not sure they could get someone out the same day. Ethan called me back to let me know he was going to make it happen! After a long, hot day in 118 degree weather, Justin D arrived with a cheerful and positive demeanor. He went right to work and fixed our air! You would have never known he had been working in this heat all day! I felt like his first customer of the day! He was polite and professional and just gave us the best customer service! Hard to find these days! I just can't tell you how much I appreciate how kind he was. It was hot and stressful thinking about how to get the air fixed - Justin's bright smile and professionalism made it all ok! Thank you!
