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.

Scott Dale was very professional. He answered our concerns and questions. He took time to explain the necessity of the repairs. Just by talking to him, we felt confident with him doing the repairs.

Hobaica has now installed 2 ac units for us-each time they have been exceptional to work with. They are fair and honest with their quotes. Andy Hobaica is always available to his customers and they may have the friendliest and most competent employees. I highly recommend.Just had Hobaica come out to fix an old unit, bedroom side of house-it’s been 111-115 degrees. Ryan W came out on Fri evening to evaluate and he was back on Mon to fix! Thanks Ryan, greatly appreciated

We called Hobaica for HVAC repair and they came out the same day, after waiting for 2 other companies to call back after 3 days (and still no call). Ron J. was on time, quickly diagnosed the problem and had our AC fixed quickly. We will use them again and highly recommend them!

Travis Vanau was our technician and he was awesome!! We have had an AC company come out now twice through our home warranty and both times have been told everything was fine. Travis was here for maybe 15-20 minutes and informed us that it looks like we have an AC leak, and walked us through the necessary steps for proper repair. He did a recharge for us and is coming back later this week to better identify the potential leak in our system! We can’t thank you enough, Travis!

Hobaica came out on June 8th and 11th, 2021. The first visit was for a/c seasonal maintenance. Scott Dale did a great job explaining what might be happening with an intermittent fan noise. I'm going to record it on video the next time it happens, and call them.The second visit was to install a new hose bib. I asked for a quote during Scott's visit, and decided to book it for later in the week. Travis Vonau arrived on Friday and took care of it. All of the Hobaica team members are knowledgeable and friendly. Thanks!

Last week Ryan Waters was our technician sent to do routine maintenance work on our a/c unit. He arrived within the time stated. He was very courteous when we spoke to him & promptly got to work. When he finished he explained what he had done & some further issue that needed to be addressed. He put in a work order & he was back out this week to complete the service. We are extremely happy with Hobaica & Mr Waters. Ryan Waters is an excellent technician, very knowledgeable, friendly & professional.
