Upgrading Your Insulation

If the insulation in your Phoenix home is inadequate, it can result in an additional cost for cooling and heating, not to mention, it robs the home of the comfort that is possible.  While most people consider insulation a necessity in colder climates in order to prevent heat loss and keep the home warm when temperatures drop. It’s the same in Phoenix.  The extreme heat of the summer can penetrate the home, but the bitter cold of our winter nights can be downright dangerous to children and those with weak immune systems.  Insulation upgrades are a simple way to prevent dramatic temperature changes in the home.

If a home’s insulation is not up to grade, you can be sure you will pay more than necessary in order to keep it comfortable when temperatures soar in either direction.  In addition, installing more insulation offers one of the least expensive and easiest ways to make the home more comfortable inside while conserving energy.  Home insulation upgrades can help to save up to 20% of one’s monthly energy bills while also improving the comfort in the home all year long.

The required amount of insulation varies from one region to the next. It is due in part to the age of the home.  Currently, the United States Department of Energy along with the IECC makes a recommendation that homes located in the Southwest make home insulation upgrades of R-30 to R-49 for their attics.  Wall cavity insulation needs to be upgraded to an R-value of 13-15 and floor upgrades should be to R-13.

In the warm climate of Phoenix, it is particularly important that owners make home insulation upgrades to meet the government recommendations in the attic.  Attics with inadequate insulation can build up heat that radiates through the ceilings of the living space.  The additional heat load makes air conditioners work harder while residents remain less comfortable than would be possible with the upgrade.  In addition, it is important to ensure the attic has proper ventilation.  Ventilation helps to keep attic spaces cooler and ensures a more comfortable living space.  By providing proper insulation, the cooling system will not need to work as hard, reducing energy costs and the wear and tear on the mechanical components of the system.

Homeowners are responsible to ensure their house is properly insulated.  While other climates may depend on insulation for keeping homes comfortable when temperatures are cold outside, in Phoenix, the home insulation upgrade helps to keep the home cooler during hot and humid weather.  Hobaica Services can help you to decide if you need additional insulation with a Home Energy Evaluation.

July '22: Welp, of course the older AC goes out in the Phoenix summer on a long holiday weekend but Hobaica saved our holiday! Called the emergency line and they were able to get a technician (John M) on site within 2 hours. John was very helpful in explaining the situation and helping evaluate the options, very knowledgeable, informative, efficient, and of course top notch customer service.As I've used Hobaica twice in less than a year on two systems, I'll be relying on them in the future for electrical, plumbing, and HVAC needs.Nov '21: Of the 5 - 7 separate HVAC companies that came to give a quote, they were the only ones to provide more than one option based on the specific needs of the space and its use.My only criticism is regarding specifics of installation that I now have questions on, that should've been hammered out beforehand.

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 experience receiving estimate. Quick scheduling of service. Knowledgeable service techs. Most importantly, they delivered peace of mind, which can't be purchased.

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.

Grayson Vu was a very knowledgeable and professional service tech. He was on time and took his time checking things out. He even recommended something to improve our air flow and comfort. Great company and great rep!

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.
