Often you hear about Energy Star appliances, efficient heating/air conditioning units, special windows and doors as ways to save money on monthly utility bills. Sometimes more expensive options are considered, such as solar or geothermal which can take many years to recoup the investment before realizing any net savings. The single most important and most cost-effective money saving opportunity is an insulated home. According to the Department of Energy, 30-45% of all energy wasted is through the roof and walls of a home. The fact is, when Insulation is properly installed by creative air solutions professional insulation installers, no other energy improvement investment is recouped faster.

Most homes in southern California were built when energy efficiency and green practices were less of a concern. Attics in the majority of homes built before 1990 are insulated to the lower standards of that time so most likely your home is under insulated by today’s building codes.

Save On Your Utility Bills
“Sealing and insulating the “envelope” or “shell” of your home is often the most cost effective way to improve energy efficiency and comfort.”
U.S. Department of Energy
Proper Attic Insulation can keep a house cooler during summer and warmer during winter. Attic Insulation is a highly cost effective way to bring a higher level of comfort to your home.
Do you reach for a blanket when it gets chilly? Do you look for some shade when it gets hot?
Of course we all do it because we like to be comfortable! Adding attic insulation to a minimum of R30 Value or 12″ will put a “blanket” over your home in the winter and keep that heat in, reducing your heating bill up to 60%! Likewise, in the summertime insulation provides the much needed “shade”, shielding your home from the intense heat of your attic, reducing your cooling bill up to 60%!
Insulation is rated in terms of thermal resistance, called R-value. The R-value indicates the resistance to heat flow of the insulating material. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. Since heat rises, an inadequately insulated attic allows the heat from the living space of your house to escape. There are several types of insulation products that are used in upgrading existing home insulation. If your Home is over 10 years old it’s likely that your current attic insulation (if any) is less than 50% of what is recommended by today’s building standards and the U.S. Department of Energy.
When you spend energy and money daily to heat and cool the air just to have it escape, that’s wasted fuel and dollars. Additional attic insulation can help reduce your utility bills, all year long.
