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.

Scott came by today to perform routine maintenance on our air conditioners. He discovered one of the capacitors to be failing & was able to replace it quickly & efficiently. Now I can get through the summer without worries. Thanks Scott!

Hello, just a little note to tell you how great our Technicians were today.Ivan and Troy showed up a little ahead of schedule, met with us, checked out the work areas and got right to work. And they did a fantastic job! I thought I was going to hear all kinds of banging and all kinds of noise but instead it was just a little bit of noise and the cool sound of Ivan whistling... reminded me of my Dad, he always whistled to, it was great.Troy was also quietly working outside.Upon completion of the work Troy and Ivan showed us their work and how the new thermostat worked.They did a great job with the installation, very professional work! I've seen a few air conditioning/furnace installations over the years when building homes with my dad and cousin...and these two technicians (Ivan and Troy) are obviously very good at what they do, and very good with the customer service experience they exhibited to us!!And personally I think they both definitely deserve a raise!!! And no, they didn't ask me to say this, LOL. It's obvious they're humble guys that would never ask for something like this, but they definitely deserve a raise...at minimum some fantastic kudos to some great Hobiaca Technicians!Kudos to Ivan and Troy for a job very well done!Thank you,Jack and Jackie Guzman11/11/2021
