Which Type of Insulation is Best for My House?

 

There are a number of different types of insulation on the market and trying to figure out which one is right for you can be tough. That’s why we here at Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning offer a full range of insulation services in Green Valley, AZ. The type of insulation that is right for your home can vary from house to house. Here are a few things to consider when shopping for new insulation.

Keep This In Mind When Insulation Shopping

When you start to think about replacing your insulation, there are a couple things to keep in mind.

Insulation is designed to resist heat transfer. That’s why we put it in our walls, floors and ceilings: to prevent heat from moving between our home’s interior and the outside. The R-value of insulation describes how well it resists heat transfer.

The Department of Energy has created an online guide that helps you determine which R-value of insulation you need in your home based on which “zone” you live in. Here in Green Valley, AZ, we fall into zones 2 or 3 which means that we need attic insulation with R30 to R60. While this type of insulation is available on the internet, you should still consult with a Green Valley, AZ insulation expert before you make any decisions.

While attic insulation is very important, there are a couple other things that you can consider for your home. Radiant barriers are installed as a thin layer on your roof  and can provide significant shielding from the sun’s heat by reflecting it. Here at Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning, we are the Green Valley, AZ insulation contractor that you can count on to help you with all of your insulation needs.
