Are You Surprised by the Many Benefits of Replacing Insulation in Your Home?If you’re looking for ways to significantly reduce your energy bills then you’ll be glad you found Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing. We prioritize quality and are always looking for ways to save our customers money. Our technicians can come out to your home or business and find ways to reduce your energy bills – including replacing your existing insulation.

We’ll give you an honest assessment of what you need

There are plenty of homes in California that have adequate insulation. We will not come out and use smoke and mirrors to convince you that you need more – or better – insulation if you don’t. That said, it’s often the case that homes with utility bills that are much higher than they should be aren’t insulated well.

If that’s not the case, then we can look for other causes, such as an outdated hot water heater. No matter the situation, we will never tell you that you need something if you don’t. We are here for your satisfaction and are more concerned about building long-term relationships with clients than we are about making a quick buck today. Call us at (661) 947-2653 if you need ideas on how to save money on your utilities.

You can save money all year long with the right insulation

Energy Star has done exhaustive studies, all of which have shown that most homes in the United States don’t have the recommended amount or quality of insulation. In some cases, the insulation was fine when it was installed, but over the years it’s settled. This often happens with plumbing vent stacks, attic hatches, duct registers, etc. This leaves your living spaces more likely to be infiltrated with air leaks and drafts.

In other cases, insulation loses its effectiveness with age or when damaged by water. Of course, we work with homes where a poor quality product was used from the beginning. No matter what the issue is, you can count on Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing to fix it. We’ll send out one of our skilled and experienced HVAC professionals to assess your situation. We’ll explain the importance of getting your home to the right R-value and will give our best advice on how you can do that.

There are many advantages of having the right insulation

Southern California is in zone 3 for insulation, which means that the right R-value for insulation products is between R30 and R60 in new attics and R25 and R38 when adding a new layer on existing insulation. Getting up to the R-value comes with a huge list of advantages. First, you won’t lose heat from your building in summer and you won’t have heat getting into your building in summer.

Your energy bills will go down, your HVAC equipment won’t have to work as hard, and you won’t notice so much noise intrusion. The ability to control humidity will be better, you’ll have fewer dusty drafts, and your indoor air quality is likely to improve. If you’re ready for these and other benefits, reach out to Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing at (661) 947-2653 for more details.
