Lower your heating and cooling costs—call us for quality attic insulation services today! Your attic insulation is more important than many people realize; it’s a huge part of your home’s air envelope (separates the indoor air from the outside air). Insulation doesn’t just work to keep your home warmer, which isn’t a huge concern here in Texas. It helps prevent heat transfer in general—both from the inside out and the outside in. That means less work for your air conditioner and lower utility bills for you. In fact, the average homeowner can save up to 15% on their heating and cooling costs just by installing attic insulation.
Whether you’re building a new home or your current home doesn’t have enough insulation, we’re here to help. At Loyal Home Services, we have nearly 30 years of experience providing quality attic insulation services in San Antonio, TX, and the surrounding communities. We have the tools and expertise to ensure your home is energy efficient and you’re not paying more than necessary to stay comfortable year-round.
As attic insulation typically only needs to be installed once (unless it’s damaged by moisture or pests), chances are you don’t know much about it. That can make it choosing the right insulation for your home feel challenging. Our friendly experts are happy to help you choose, but in the meantime, here are the most common types of insulation:
Applied in batts or rolls, blanket insulation is what many people think of when they hear the word “insulation.” It’s probably in your walls right now. It’s a common option in San Antonio, due to its affordability. However, blanket insulation is work-intensive to lay. It also isn’t a great option if your attic has narrow joint spacing or a lot of pipes and other obstructions that would need to be cut around.
Blown-in insulation consists of loose chunks of fiberglass, cellulose, or mineral wool that’s “blown-in” using special equipment. In minor renovations, it can also be poured in. It’s one of the cheapest options and works well for unusual-shaped attics or those with obstructions, nooks, and crannies.
Often made of polyurethane, spray foam is sprayed directly onto your attic ceiling. It’s a costly option but does an excellent job sealing any small air cracks. The sealing aspect of spray foam also makes proper attic ventilation vital.
The proper R-value, or heat resistance level, for the San Antonio area is R30 to R60 in attics. How much insulation you’ll need to achieve that will vary based on the insulation type you choose. For example, it takes about 9 to 10 inches of blown-in insulation to reach R30. Our experienced team will execute these calculations for you.
If you’re having trouble keeping your home at a comfortable temperature or are just tired of paying astronomical heating & cooling costs, attic insulation could be the answer! Our experienced home service contractors can help you improve your home’s energy efficiency.
