Las Vegas Insulation Contractor
How a Las Vegas Insulation Contractor Can Save You Money on Your Utility Bill
If your home always seems to be too hot during the summer and too cold during the winter while your energy bill continues to increase, a qualified Las Vegas insulation contractor can help you find relief. The technicians at First Quality Roofing & Insulation are experts at evaluating attic insulation and depending on what they find, could save you a substantial amount on your home heating and cooling costs.
During the winter, heated air from inside the home flows naturally towards the garage, attic and other unheated areas. During the summer, the hot air outside the home flows towards the cooled interior. Insulation serves as a barrier to provide resistance to that flow of hot air. The lower the resistance, the harder your home’s heating and air conditioning system must work to maintain a comfortable temperature inside.
The thermal resistance of insulation depends on the thickness, density and type of material. The resistance is measured by an industry standard known as its R-value. Insulation with higher resistance has a higher R-value and saves energy.
An Experienced Las Vegas Insulation Contractor Can Check the R-Value of Your Insulation
The Department of Energy recommends that homes in Las Vegas incorporate insulation with an R-value of at least R49. Most homes built more than 10 years ago were built to meet the standard acceptable at the time, which was lower. The insulation specialists at First Quality Roofing & Insulation know how to accurately measure your attic and calculate the R-value of the existing insulation. If it is below the standard, our installers can add more insulation to increase it to R49.
We offer our customers blown in fiberglass because it is comparable in price to other materials and represents a good value. We also believe it offers the best thermal resistance to keep your home comfortable all year round.
