Do You Want to Save Money on Your Utilities? Check Your Insulation

Do You Want to Save Money on Your Utilities? Check Your InsulationThere’s a lot of advice out there on how you can save your home or business money by lowering utilities. You may have seen advice to buy new windows or change out your appliances. While these are great tips, one aspect that can have a huge impact but is not as often suggested is taking a look at how well your home or office is insulated.

If you’re not sure if your insulation is up to the job then we encourage you to call Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing at (661) 947-2653. We can come out, assess the insulation you have, and give you information about what upgrading may do. Indeed, if your insulation is insufficient or old, then you could save considerably on both heating and cooling if you upgrade your insulation.

You can save money every day of the year

Energy Star did an exhaustive survey and discovered that the majority of homes in the United States don’t have enough insulation. In some cases, it may have settled – especially in areas like plumbing vent stacks, duct registers, and attic hatches – which leaves extra space that can encourage air leaks and drafts.

In other cases, age or water damage may have affected its ability to insulate. Sometimes bad quality insulation was used in the first place, or it wasn’t installed properly. No matter what the issue is, you can count on Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing to help. We’ll send over one of our skilled technicians to look at the insulation in your attic, evaluate if you need more to get the perfect R-value that maximizes the energy efficiency in your home, and will provide a quote for getting the work done.

You may be surprised to learn about the benefits of the right insulation balance

Southern California is considered to be in zone 3 when it comes to insulation. What does this mean? It means that the ideal R-value for insulation is between R30 and R60 when adding new insulation to attics and between R25 and R38 when adding a new layer on top of older insulation. This doesn’t have to make sense to you – we can get your R-values up and once we do you could see a number of benefits.

First, you could experience less heat loss from your home or office during the winter and less heating getting in during the summer months. You could see your HVAC equipment experience must less strain, you could see lower utility bills, you could notice that your equipment makes less noise (or seems to), you could have better humidity control, and you could see your air quality improve with fewer drafts that are filled with dust.
