You keep up with preventive maintenance and change the air filter regularly. However, you realize that the AC is running constantly and barely keeping you comfortable. The problem may not be with the unit. In hot regions like Macclenny, Florida, good attic insulation can make a big difference. Whether your home is old or new, attic insulation reduces energy waste and cooling bills and improves comfort in every season.
Better Temperature Control
As the sun blazes down on the roof of your Jacksonville home, your attic is heating up. It can reach a stifling 140 degrees or more. That warmth transfers into the rafters, ceilings, walls and even inside your house. Your air conditioner becomes less efficient and has to work harder to cool the rooms in your home. Using blown or blown-in insulation is one way you can upgrade to the R-Value recommended for our area. Adequate insulation reduces the load on your air conditioner and helps it maintain a more consistent temperature and humidity level.
Lower Energy Bills
When your air conditioner doesn’t have to work so hard, you are conserving energy and reducing demand on the power grid. That also means a decrease in your monthly energy bills, leaving more money in your budget. It won’t take long for you to notice the difference in air conditioning performance and your cooling bills. Our service technicians will provide an honest assessment to help you determine the best type and amount of insulation for your space.
