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.

Had my leaking water softener repaired by Hobaica Services. Brandon who came to the house was very knowledgeable, diagnosed the issue quickly, and fixed the problem on a second visit after the required parts came in.7/29/21 -- Called Hobaica again, this time for a rooftop AC that was leaking water into the ceiling, and was able to get an appointment for the same day. Travis arrived at the start of the time window provided, identified the source of the leak, and was able to make the repair. The service call was complete within 1 1/2 hours, including the time it took Travis to run to the hardware store to purchase a length of PVC pipe.9/11/21 -- Juan E serviced our other AC unit that turned out to be low on refrigerant. He got it back up and running quickly, blowing cold air instead of just slightly cooler than room temperature.
