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.

We've been Hobaica heat pump and maintenance customers since 1997. Just had a semiannual maintenance visit from Amer on our very new Lennox system installed last Fall. Amer was very thorough and a pleasure to work with. Excellent service, as usual, from Hobaica.Another maintenance today (3/21) done by Scott and Travis. Again, very thorough inspection. And pleasant to work with.
