During the summer here in Texas, attics can reach temperatures of over 170 degrees. When your attic is not insulated properly, wood, drywall, and other construction materials allow this heat to flow through the ceiling and directly into your home. Then in winter, these same materials allow heat from your home to rise into your attic, where it then escapes through the roof. Your air conditioning system ends up working overtime to keep your home cool in the summer, and your heating system constantly runs to keep your home warm in the winter.
Proper attic insulation will prevent heat transfer, allowing your living space to stay at the perfect temperature no matter how hot or cold it is outside. Green Collar Operations specializes in attic insulation to help homeowners in Austin and the surrounding Hill Country area make their homes more comfortable and energy efficient.
Greater Comfort & Energy Efficiency for Your Home
By properly insulating your attic, you can create a more comfortable indoor climate, significantly improve your home’s energy efficiency, and more. The benefits of proper attic insulation include:
Reduced heat transfer through your attic
More consistent temperatures in your home
Greater home energy efficiency
Lower heating and cooling bills
Reduced carbon footprint
Attic Insulation Done Right
Local utilities suggest that the average Austin home needs an additional six to eight inches of attic insulation to optimize energy efficiency. We recommend going above the Department of Energy’s recommendations of R-38 for our region and having at least 15 to 18 inches of insulation in your attic. Rather than just “getting the job done,” we’ll come to your home, assess your attic’s needs with a free energy audit, and install the right amount of insulation to provide your home with the greatest benefits.
