Attic Insulation Products and Services in Monroe GA and Surrounding Areas
Without adequate attic insulation, even the most efficient heating or cooling system will waste energy and your money. Our attic insulation services let you make the most of the investment you’ve made in indoor comfort.
How Attic Insulation Works
Blocking the flow of heat is the primary role of attic insulation. Most insulation products work by slowing conduction, which is the way heat moves through materials like your roof. In the heat of summer in Monroe, Georgia, an uninsulated attic can reach temperatures as high as 150 degrees, and that heat tries to seep into your home negating the cool air your AC has produced.
Because heat naturally flows from warmer to cooler areas, insulation saves you money during the winter too. It helps keep the warm air generated by your heating system from escaping into the attic and through the roof.
How Much Is Enough?
An insulating material’s ability to block the flow of heat is rated by its R-value. Thickness isn’t the only factor that determines a substance’s R-value. The weight, density, and type of material come into play as well. The bottom line is: The higher the R-value, the greater the energy savings. For homes in Monroe and the surrounding communities, optimal R-values range between R30 and R60. Even if you already have attic insulation, you could save money by adding more. It’s worth a trip up into the attic to assess the situation.
- Make sure that any existing insulation covers the floor joists. Heat flows more readily through building materials like studs and joists.
- Check for evenly distributed insulation levels. Dips, low spots or gaps along the eaves impede performance and drive up energy bills.
- Look for signs of water intrusion. Moisture not only encourages bacterial growth but also ruins the material’s insulative capabilities.
