Why Should You Add Insulation To Your Attic?
Insulation keeps your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. When correctly installed with our block and seal procedure, insulation can deliver comfort and lower your energy bills during the hottest and coldest times of the year. Insulation works best when air is not moving through or around it, making it very important to seal air leaks before installing additional insulation. This is done to ensure that you get the best performance from your insulation project.
At Central Heating and Air Conditioning we have your best interest at heart. We do not just blow in insulation and leave. We take the extra time to move existing insulation aside and seal electrical plumbing penetrations, duct registers and your drop down attic stair hatches. This ensures that conditioned air does not escape into your attic. Once all open areas are sealed, we blow in insulation to the appropriate R-value, effectively insulating and sealing your living space from your hot attic.
Adding insulation and sealing your attic will allow you to enjoy benefits listed below:
- Lower Utility Bills
- Improved comfort, especially during winter and summer seasons
- Better humidity control
- Reduced noise from the outside
- Less stress on your Heating and Air conditioning system, prolonging its life
We at Central Heating and Air Conditioning have Indoor Air Quality Specialists who will thoroughly diagnose insulation or duct work deficiencies and will take their time in reviewing their findings with you. They will present you with the most cost effective solutions and will guarantee your satisfaction.
Insulation keeps your home warm in winter and cool in summer. When correctly installed with our block and seal procedure, insulation can deliver comfort and lower your energy bills during the hottest and coldest times of the year. Insulation works best when air is not moving through or around it, making it very important to seal air leaks by way of our block and seal process before installing insulation. You want to avoid companies that just blow in insulation without sealing all electrical/plumbing penetrations, duct registers and your dropdown attic stair hatches. Once all open areas are sealed, we blow in insulation to a minimum R- value of R-38, effectively insulating and sealing your living space form your hot or cold attic.
Insulating your crawl space is another great way to achieve energy savings and improved comfort. As in the attic, it is very important that all electrical and plumbing penetrations are sealed eliminating musty crawl space air from entering your living space prior to installing insulation. Air infiltration is a significant energy drain and sealing penetrations in the building envelope of your home is a major energy saver. We recommend that your crawl space be insulated with a minimum R- value of R-19.
We have all experienced an escalation in energy prices and as prices continue to increase, finding ways to improve energy efficiency has become more popular. One very effective way to reduce energy demand is to insulate your attic and/or crawl space with spray foam insulation. Spray foam insulation is a healthy alternative to more traditional insulation products such as fiberglass and cellulous. This product has become much more attractive to home owners as they search for ways to reduce their energy consumption. Spray foam is very beneficial, as it reduces heating and cooling costs, seals the major source of air leaks in your home, increases comfort, reduces noise, keeps pollutants from entering your living space, while improving your indoor air quality.
