When you think of insulation, you may think of the cold. After all, insulation keeps warm air in, which makes it appropriate during the colder months of the year. This is true, but insulation works both ways. It also keeps heat from entering your home when you want to stay cool during the Arizona summer. That’s what makes having professionally installed insulation so important. Whether you don’t yet have insulation in your home, or simply need yours replaced, Goettl Good Guys of Phoenix can help.

There are various options to consider when thinking about how to best insulate your home for maximize energy efficiency and improve the comfort of your home.
- Attic insulation. Insulation is a thermal barrier that controls the flow of heat in both directions. Because heat always moves towards the cold, your home is at risk of losing heat when it’s cold outdoors, and losing cool air when it’s hot outdoors. The attic is a critical threshold in your home when it comes to your HVAC system because it’s often the hottest part of the house, owing to the amount of sun that hits the roof directly. Insulating the attic allows you to contain that thermal energy during the summer, in order to minimize its influence on your air conditioner’s performance. Don’t let your cool air go through the roof!
- Attic fan. An attic fan provides much-needed ventilation of the hottest part of your home during the summer. By cooling this section of your home, you can reduce the effects of the sun’s radiant energy on your home.
- Radiant barrier. If you’re looking for an effective way to limit the amount of radiant energy that travels through your roof in the first place, then you should consider installing a radiant barrier. While typically installed during the roofing process, they can also be retrofitted. This reflects the radiant heat of the sun, and can lead to a significantly cooler house with lower energy bills.
