A well-insulated attic will prevent the transfer of heat between your living space and the attic above. In the winter, heat from your furnace will rise and go into the attic above, forcing your heating system to work harder to keep your living space below warm. Similarly, when it’s hot out, the heat in your attic will travel down to the rooms below, also boosting cooling costs.
The answer to this dilemma is proper attic insulation.

Choose the Right Type of Attic Insulation
Uneven, inconsistent temperatures in the home and high energy costs are signs that your attic is poorly insulated. Most experts agree that the best choices for attic insulation are typically fiberglass batts, cellulose and spray foam.
This type of insulation consists of very fine glass fibers and is found in most homes today. It can be applied in batts and rolls, and loose-fill. Fiberglass is inexpensive and suitable for stud and joist spacing areas that are free from obstructions.
Cellulose insulation has been used for centuries. It consists of recycled newspaper with boric acid for pest control and fire resistance. It can be blown-in or applied as a loose-fill material. It does not use greenhouse gasses and, like fiberglass, it is relatively affordable.
This form of attic insulation creates an air seal designed to fill every crack and crevice in your attic. It does not settle or shift like other types of insulation and mold and water-resistant.
At Comfort 1 Heating & Air Conditioning Services, our attic insulation experts will help you choose the right insulation for your attic. Just give us a call, and we will be happy to answer your questions.
Pay Attention to R-Values in Your Area
Home insulation is rated in R-Values, which measures the ability of insulation to resist heat. Higher R-Values are the most effective. The Department of Energy recommends R-values of R30 to R60 for unconditioned, unfinished attics in Southern California.
If all of this sounds confusing, it isn’t. The insulation experts at Comfort 1 Heating & Air Conditioning Services will sort it all out for you. We have the skill and experience to insulate your attic properly, with the right type of insulation, and with the correct R-Value as mandated by California building code.
Consider a ductless mini-split AC system for a retrofit remodel and room additions.
Benefits of Good Attic Insulation
Attic insulation with the correct R-Value will maintain consistent temperatures in your home, thereby allowing your HVAC system to operate at peak efficiency. The less conditioned air loss, the easier it will be for your heating and cooling system to keep your living space at a comfortable temperature. More importantly, the overall energy efficiency of your system will translate into a lower energy bill, and this is always a good thing.
