Don’t guess about whether you have sufficient attic insulation – call us for a complimentary consultation to be certain.
At 31-W Insulation, we have grown since our inception in 1972 to provide attic insulation products and services to 12 Southeastern states. With that much territory to cover, we had to become acquainted with the various zones and the amount of insulation or R-value needed not only for your climate, but also how it relates to your type of heating and cooling system. This knowledge means we can advise you on how much attic insulation to install in new construction or add to existing insulation to improve your R-value to the R30 to R60 recommendations set forth by Energy.gov.
The impact of under-insulated homes in the United States is greater than you might think. According to NAIMA, the amount of emissions created by homes in North America that are not insulated to the recommended R-Value is equal to that of almost 70,000 vehicles. On a personal level, in the past 15 years, the price for electricity has increased 39%, making energy efficiency more important than ever for meeting your financial objectives. If you are wondering if your home is under-insulated and you should consider adding to your attic insulation, the answer is probably yes, as research indicates nearly 90% of homes are.
We offer a wide variety of attic insulation solutions, so the best option can be utilized for your situation and budget. We offer batt, rolled, and blow-in foam insulation from some of the industry’s leading manufacturers, including Owens Corning®, Johns Manville, CertainTeed, and Knauf. If you would like to schedule a complimentary consultation to determine if your home has enough attic insulation and to discuss improving your home’s energy efficiency, don’t hesitate to contact us.
