Enhance The Comfort Of Your Home And Your Budget With Blown In Insulation
Insulation? What “R” You Talking About?
No matter what season, you want to be sure that your home’s heating and cooling is doing its job efficiently. Unfortunately, your attic may not be helping out when it comes to keeping your bills low. Adding insulation is a cost effective way to make your home more comfortable year-round.
Old Insulation Costing You?
As attic insulation wears down, it becomes compressed and can no longer function the way it was designed to. Homes constructed more than a decade ago probably don’t meet the U.S. Department of Energy’s Thermal Resistance (R Value) guidelines for insulation. Homes with faulty insulation can lose heat in the winter and gain heat in the summer, wasting precious energy dollars and natural resources.
Add Insulation And Save
When F.H. Furr installs new insulation, an Energy Specialist will check your attic to see if the tops of your joists are visible. If so, adding blown attic insulation from the typical 5” to 18” (R-15 to R-38 or R-49) can save you up to 20% on your heating and cooling energy bills. By properly insulating your attic space, you can be sure that the heated or cooled air that pumps into your home, stays in your home!
Types of Insulation
There are several types of insulation products, the most common being fiberglass, rock wool, and cellulose. Flexible products made from mineral fibers, such as fiberglass and rock wool are available in widths suited to standard wall studs and attic floor joists.
This use of energy represents 21% of the national total and includes the significant demand for electricity and natural gas. With increasing energy prices continuing to rise, it’s a good idea to make sure that your home is using the least amount of energy possible. Upgrading the insulation in your attic will allow your heating and cooling system to use much less power, simply by sealing off your attic from the rest of the home. By adding insulation and being sure that it’s properly installed, you can protect your budget and conserve energy, all while maintaining a comfortable home environment.
Americans spend more than $160 billion dollars each year to heat, cool, light and live in their homes.
