Don’t Let the Heat Be a Bummer – Insulate in the Summer
Here in the Valley of the Sun we deal with heat for most of the year. We have 1-2 months when we run our heaters in the winter, for comfort, a few weeks when we can leave our windows open and the rest of the year we do everything we can to keep cool air in and hot air out.
At Mountain Peak Air, we offer the best solutions to heating and cooling your home, with energy-efficient HVAC units as well as premium insulation options. The two styles of insulation we use are Blown-in Attic Insulation and Spray Foam Insulation, both of which offer incredible sealant and do not allow air to creep in or out. In Arizona, the heat is intense and persistent. Climates in different states may cause the thickness of the insulation to vary. The recommendation for Arizona is R38, which is typically 13-14 inches of blown-in insulation, or 5-9 inches of spray foam insulation, depending on the configuration of your joists. We understand the importance of proper thickness in rising temperatures and will install the amount that will ensure you quality temperature control within your home.
Our Blown-in and Spray Foam insulations are professional grade and effective, we guarantee that they will increase the insulating power of your home. The installation process for these services is quick and effective. We can be in and out in a short period of time. We also provide our insulation services to newly constructed homes as well as homes you have lived in for many years.
Why Insulate in the Summer?
Proper insulation in your home acts like a thermos, keeping warm air in during the winter and cold air in during our long hot season. Like a thermos keeping your drink cold, insulation helps you maintain the desired temperature longer, instead of adding more and more ice to your drink. In your home, that would translate into running your HVAC more often causing your energy bills to skyrocket, and wear out your HVAC system shortening its lifespan.
Properly insulated homes allow your HVAC systems to run more efficiently. These systems should keep your home cool and refreshing, without them overworking and overheating. The quantity and quality of your insulation will be the deciding factor in whether or not you save money in the summertime. Mountain Peak Air provides one of the best insulation services, resulting in cooler homes and lower energy bills!
