PROPER INSULATION SAVES YOU MONEY According to the Department of Energy, heating and cooling account for 50 to 70% of the energy used in the average American home. Inadequate insulation and air leaks are the leading causes of energy waste in most homes. HOW INSULATION WORKS Heated air naturally flows into cooler space. Attic insulation creates thermal resistance, slowing down the rate at which heat flows from warm areas to cooler areas in your home. In winter, insulation slows heat from flowing into your attic from living spaces below, reducing the amount of time you need to run your heating system in order to maintain comfortable room temperatures. In summer insulation slows heat built up in the attic from penetrating down into air conditioned living spaces below, also cutting costs while reducing wear and tear on your air conditioner. If you have rooms that heat slowly in winter or cool slowly in summer you may have insufficient or uneven insulation levels in your attic. WHAT IS “R” VALUE Insulation capacity is measured or rated in terms of its thermal resistance or R-value. The higher the “R” value, greater the heat resistance, the better your insulation will perform. FINDING THE RIGHT “R” VALUE FOR YOUR HOME Use the following U.S. Department of Energy insulation calculator to determine the recommended insulation levels, based on where you live.
