Free Attic Insulation Evaluation
As temperatures drop during the winter and climb over the summer, the key to keeping your Las Vegas home comfortable without astronomical utility bills is the amount of attic insulation that is present in your home, and the quality of the installation. In the average house, up to 60 percent of the energy used for heating is wasted due to inadequate insulation in the attic and walls, and according to US Environmental Protection Agency, most homes in the United States lack the proper amount of insulation.
With the steady evolution of construction practices and standards over the last few decades, the amount of insulation that is typically installed has increased dramatically. In Las Vegas, for example, the current recommendations for new homes includes attic insulation that meets at least R-49 requirements. In contrast, homes built during the last few decades needed only an R-30 rating in the attic, and those built before 1990 required as little as an R-19 rating. Consequently, even if your home is only a few years old, it may be cost-effective to consider upgrading your insulation to meet the latest standards.
With the proper amount of attic insulation in your Las Vegas home, you can expect the following benefits:
- A reduction of heating and cooling costs by up to 20 percent
- Increased comfort both in the winter and the summer
- Lower energy usage and a smaller environmental impact
- Reduced load on the HVAC system, leading to lower maintenance costs
- Improved ventilation and indoor air quality
- Fewer condensation, moisture and mold problems
