This entry was posted in Insulation on by .

Many Valley homeowners believe that home insulation is something only necessary in cold climates. Yet, it’s actually one of the least expensive, quickest ways to keep your home cool in the summer, as well as warm in the winter. In other words, professionally-installed home insulation can save you money on your monthly utility bill. In fact, it can substantially help reduce your heating and cooling consumption when quality insulation is properly installed.

Attic Insulation

According to Energy Star, a well-insulated attic can help you save as much as 20 percent on your heating and cooling bills each year. At Ellsworth Home Services, our insulation pros can check your existing attic insulation and determine if you’re losing money due to insufficient insulation. They’ll make recommendations that will not only reduce your energy consumption but also prolong the life of your HVAC system. Insulation systems should include a combination of insulation products, as well as construction techniques and sealing leaks to ensure thermal performance and to control dampness and moisture.

Do You Need Insulation?

You can find out if you have enough attic insulation by measuring its thickness. If it’s less than 11 inches of fiberglass or 8 inches of cellulose, you could benefit from the installation of more. Our technicians will ensure you get the most out of your attic’s insulation by using only Owen Corning AtticCat insulation which is the best product in the industry.

Other Benefits of Insulation

  • Muffles noise from outside
