Attic Insulation Inspections – What we Look For. These are things we assess when performing an Attic Inspection. If you would like a rough estimate over the phone, we will need the answers to the following questions when you call.
- Depth of existing material. Is it below the joists?
- What type of material is it? Cellulose is the grayish paper-like material. Fiberglass is usually white, but may come in other colors depending on the manufacturer.
- What is the livable square footage of the house?
- What do you want to bring the insulation level up to?
Insulate Today, Save Energy and Money Tomorrow!
Today’s homeowners are looking for ways to save – save on utility bills, save energy, save money. Research shows homes without the proper amount of insulation in an attic lose not only energy, but money as well. By adding the proper amount of attic insulation to their homes, homeowners could save as much as 20% on utility bills.
So How Much Insulation is in Your Attic?
According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Insulation recommendation, homes in the Valley should have insulation with an R-value between R-30 and R-60 in their attic. We recommend an R-Value of R-38 to R-49. R-Value is the thermal resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power.
Economic Benefits Of Insulation
- Insulation reduces average home health and cooling/heating costs by around 20 percent.
- Increasing the insulation in an under-insulated home results in a decrease in monthly utility bills.
- One of the most cost-effective ways to make your home more comfortable year-round is to add insulation to your attic.
- Insulation is an investment that lasts for many years and typically requires no further maintenance.
