What To Do With Attic or Blown-in Insulation Problems
If you are thinking about installing or installed blown-in insulation already and are wondering why it’s not working as efficiently as you thought, you came to the right place. Blown-in insulation by itself is not enough to keep the heat out of your home.
Yes, blown-in insulation will help keep some of the heat out of your home but not all of it. The only way to keep all of the heat from entering your home is by installing radiant barrier and an attic fan. The radiant barrier will keep the heat from penetrating your home’s interior and the attic fan will blow all of the hot air out before it gets a chance to make it inside too.
Here are the most common reasons why your blown-in insulation isn’t working.
No Attic Fan or Ventilation System
Most homes don’t automatically come with a high powered attic fan so most of the heat that is blocked from entering your home sticks around in your attic and heats up your air ducts and water lines. Your attic will actually super heat your air ducts and will heat up the air coming out of your ac unit. We have seen air ducts reach up to 140 degrees! How can you possibly expect your air conditioning unit to keep up with ducts that are that hot. The solution is to install an attic fan and use SRX radiant barrier to keep the heat out. Furthermore SRX can also be used to wrap your ducts for ultimate cooling efficiency.
Poor Distribution Of Insulation
If your insulation isn’t distributed properly is loses its effectiveness. Also, if there is not enough or too much insulation it can make the insulation useless. There is such a thing as too much insulation. Make sure your insulation is distributed properly by receiving a free energy audit. We will let you know the current state of your insulation and if you are a candidate for SRX radiant barrier which can save you up to 50% on electricity guaranteed.
Should I Remove My Old Insulation
A lot of homeowners think that removing their old insulation and replacing it with new will solve their energy efficiency or comfort problem. That’s actually false. Your insulation might be perfectly fine even if it’s old or a little dirty. Installing radiant barrier and an attic fan is the best way to increase your current insulation’s efficiency. Your insulation is probably working just fine but you need attic ventilation to blow the hot air out of your attic.
