New Attic Insulation Could Help Lower Your Chandler, AZ, Home’s Energy Bills
If there’s anything worse than watching your monthly energy bills going up, it’s not knowing why this is happening to you. When your windows, doors, and HVAC unit are all in good shape, where else could you possibly look? The answer may be right above your head—your Chandler, Arizona, home’s attic insulation could be due for an update. At FOR Energy, we can use an energy audit to determine whether that attic insulation is the problem, then install high-performing new insulation if so.
How Does Attic Insulation Affect My Energy Bills?
Your attic may be the last place you’d think to look to find an energy problem, but it should be first on anyone’s list. Why? It’s simple: Around 25% of a home’s energy is lost through the attic. That’s a significant chunk of energy loss, especially for an area of your home that most people don’t often use or even think about.
Here in Arizona, many homes have blown-in attic insulation. This is sprayed into the attic to plug up all of the little cracks, voids, and gaps that air would otherwise escape through, but it doesn’t last forever. What’s more, some kinds of blown-in insulation contain harmful chemicals such as asbestos and formaldehyde. If you need to replace your insulation, you’d do well to find a better alternative—such as the cellulose insulation that FOR Energy installs. Our preferred type of attic insulation is made with an eco-friendly mixture of recycled materials and also boasts some fire resistance. It’s greener, stronger, and less harmful than alternatives on the market. What’s not to love about that?
