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.

Fiberglass batts, or pink insulation, is the most inexpensive way to insulate a house. Residents in the Phoenix area can expect to pay between $0.64 – $1.19 a square foot for materials only. To have a 500 square foot attic supplied with insulation the cost would be about $150 – $200 for materials, and between $300 – $500 to have it professionally installed.

J. Miranda was so helpful and replied to our request right away! Called other places for emergency repair on our AC and they wouldn't be able to send someone for 3 days! Anyone who lives in AZ knows waiting that long is not an option especially during the summer! J. Miranda was friendly and took the time to explain what needed fixing. Will recommend! Thank you again!

Great guys to work with. Knowledgable, efficient, professional.A follow up concern we had about our new unit was responded to quickly & well. Nothing wrong with the equipment, but it was retested and we were educated more about our new system by our tech.

John and Jared came out today to take a look at my air conditioning unit. I live in a condo where I can’t see my unit but noticed some water dripping from the roof. They weren’t just on time, they were a little early which helped free up the rest of my day.They found that the system was running as it should be and let me know that the water was dripping because the condensation line was disconnected. Super easy fix with a little bit of glue, and they did not create worry where there was none just to add to the bill.As if that wasn’t good enough, they were incredibly nice and easy to talk to. Not nice because it’s required- just really genuine people. I was not expecting to have such an easy and inexpensive experience in Phoenix during hot, muggy monsoon season. Thank you both for making my day!

We recently had our air conditioning go out on Tuesday and on Friday a new unit was installed. The service has been fantastic. Could not have asked for a faster more friendly company.Zach and Gio were amazing in getting the unit installed and walking us through the new thermostat.

Grayson came out and was on time, and very nice. He took extra time to diagnose a potential problem, and even re-secured some wire mesh (to keep birds out) that had been blown off from the wind. He answered all my questions, will do business with hobaica again.
