20-35% Average Savings on Utility Bills
If you want to save a lot of money on your energy bills, insulating your attic and walls might be the best way. By doing so, you could potentially save up to 35% on your energy bills. After all, we learned in science class that heat rises!
Adding insulation is not only a great way to reduce your monthly energy bills, but it’s also among the only home renovation projects that lets you recoup your cost plus add to the value of your home. Government research shows a national average of a 107 percent return on your investment.
Cellulose Insulation is Better Than Spray Foam
Cellulose insulation has proven to be the safest and most reliable insulation option for homeowners looking to protect their home from fire. While cellulose is slightly more expensive than fiberglass and spray foam, it offers an increased level of safety that can’t be matched by any other type of insulation in the market.
Attic and Wall Insulation
If your attic is insulated but your walls are not, insulation in the attic will only slow down the rate at which heat leaves or enters the house.
Cool in Summer Warm in Winter
Air moves in and out of your home all year long. In summer, heat radiates from the attic as cold air seeps through the walls. In winter, heat conducts through exterior walls and radiates down from the attic on a sunny day when you need to keep it cool inside.
If your attic is insulated but your walls are not, then the heat will still escape through the top 24″ of your walls. This only slows down how fast it leaves, not where it goes.
What makes Guardian Insulation different from other insulation contractors in California and Colorado is after insulating the walls our expert technician will patch and paint, matching the original texture & color, hiding any evidence of the 100+ holes that were drilled.Our texture & color matching is guaranteed for the life of the structure.
Sound is a powerful force. It can fill or empty a space with its presence, it can be loud and hard to hear or soft and gentle. Insulation provides more effective sound control than drywall alone. If you’re the type of person who has been in a building that had little or no insulation before, then you probably noticed it’s louder outside than inside. This is because the STC (sound transmission coefficient) of an insulated building is lower – so if someone is talking on the other side of the wall they won’t seem as loud.
Cellulose insulation is 57% more fire-resistant than fiberglass insulation and is credited with providing firefighters with the extra time needed to save residents trapped in a house fire. The material is better than fiberglass or spray foam, which have been shown to be more flammable.
Insect and Rodent Prevention
Cellulose insulation is treated with Boric Acid, which was discovered in 1857 and has been used extensively by pest control companies since then. It’s poisonous to insects but not humans, meaning that it can be used for effective insect & rodent prevention without any risk of harm. It is important to install a cellulose insulation in spaces that are prone to pest infestation.
Older Homes Need Insulation
In older homes, insulation and venting are often unplanned. The result? Over $500 in savings per year on energy bills by addressing these problems with insulation and ventilation.
This is something new homeowners should definitely consider when buying an old house.
The design of older homes was not very eco-friendly which means your heating and cooling costs are higher than they should be. Older homes can have a variety of problems like minimal insulation, insufficient venting in the attic, drafty single pane windows, and inefficient HVAC units. However, by thoroughly insulating an attic and walls you could save over $500 per year on heating and cooling costs.
Orange County has many beautiful neighborhoods with older homes that would benefit greatly from and insulation upgrade. These include Floral Park and French Park in Santa Ana, Anaheim Colony in Anaheim, the homes around Fullerton’s beautiful Brookdale Street, Old Town Tustin and Old Towne Orange. Vintage style homes were built well into the 1940s in San Clemente, Laguna Beach, Newport Beach and Corona del Mar.
In Orange, there are over 300 Mid-Century Modern Eichler homes, which have specific insulation issues. Guardian’s experts know how to make certain that the cathedral ceilings and knee walls in these mid century homes are done to perfection.
In Colorado, some of the finest neighborhoods have homes nearly 150 years old! In Capitol Hill, Cheesman Park and Belcaro, homeowners could save thousands of dollars by increasing the energy efficiency of their homes.
