Is Your Attic Insulation Giving You its Best?

An attic that is well insulated literally puts a lid on your heating and cooling bill with savings of 20% or more on energy costs. Good attic insulation will hold in the heat during the winter and protect your air conditioning system during the summer. Attic insulation in Tulsa involves keeping as much of your attic space covered with insulation for comfort and energy efficiency.

An attic that is insulated properly will not allow heated air to escape through the roof. It will also stabilize the cooler air during the summer. At the same time, air is allowed to circulate through the attic to prevent the build-up of mold and fungus.

R-Values

Energy Star, part of the Department of Energy program to conserve power usage, measures insulation with R-values for heat and cool air retention. The R-value refers to the thermal resistance of the insulating material. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation.

An R-value of 38 to 60 is recommended for attic insulation in Tulsa and surrounding communities. The insulating material should cover 13 to 20 inches above the attic floor. This will cover most of the joist work supports and beams in a pitched roof attic. Soffit areas and vents remain uncovered.
