We understand it’s very easy to forget the importance of your attic, when heating and cooling your home is involved. You may have a gut feeling that heat is leaving your home or it’s harder to cool your home in the summer, or you have observed a sharp change in your utility bills. You have investigated looking for the source and can’t seem to determine how or where the problem is. Chances are that your attic is playing a major role. Attic insulation helps capture the heat rising to the top of your home, during the winter, by removing possibilities for the heat to pass through your ceiling through conduction or air leaks. The reverse is true during the summer. Attic insulation, especially in the Dallas heat, acts as a barrier against hot air penetrating your home. Finally, the simple task of insulating your attic or upgrading your attic insulation might be one of the most important tasks you do to keep your home warm in the cold months and cool in the warm months. It’s all about being comfortable in your own home.
As our homes age, it may become judicious to add insulation to the attic. Older homes characteristically are not known for meeting modern efficiency standards and are often under-insulated. Adding insulation can decrease your utility bills enormously, while making your home more energy efficient and cost-effective. By increasing the attic barrier, the amount of work necessitated by your heating and cooling system can be measured by the reduction of hours it must run and your increased number of comfortable days, therefore increasing the life span of your system, decreasing your carbon footprint, and reducing your cost out of pocket. DFW Home Insulation offers a full evaluation of your attic insulation and will provide you with a full choice of options.
The decision to replace and add more attic insulation requires a simple but thorough evaluation. Preferably, to determine your current insulation levels is by simply eyeing them, if your insulation levels are at or below your attic floor joists, the attic insulation should be added. However, if the opposite is true and you cannot see any of your attic floor joists due to too much insulation, then you might not need to add more insulation. But still is a question because you don’t know if you have enough. Next, do you know the “R-value” of your current insulation? If you’re like most, No. The “R-value” helps in determining when it’s time to add more. R-values are the measurement of an insulations ability to resist heat. The higher the R-value, the more superior the insulation. R-values between R-30 and R-60 are recommended for Dallas homes, which can range from 10 to 20 inches of padding. It all is contingent upon the climate. DFW Home Insulation can aid in determining your current R-value and if the addition of insulation is required.
