Attic insulation works by limiting the movement of air in your attic, keeping the warm air inside your home and not letting it escape through the roof in the winter and blocking heat from entering the home during the summer. As shown on the diagram to the left, air is pulled into your home through cracks in doors, windows, electrical outlets and vents. When the air in the attic begins to cool, warm air is pulled up from the living area into the attic to balance the temperature. This works the opposite way in the summer, the sun warms up the air in the attic and radiates down into the rest of the home. Most air conditioning units can’t keep up at the rate that the heat is coming in from above and you are left with a home that doesn’t stay as cool as you would like and a rather large bill at the end of the month.
Standard fiberglass batted insulation isn’t as effective as other solutions. Fiberglass ‘bats’ are pre-cut so when put between framing it is meant to be a perfect fit, however, not every house is perfect and there will be gaps if the spaces are too large or too small. Bats also can’t reach some of the small spots where the need for insulation is most critical. Fiberglass insulation isn’t very dense and it takes almost 12” to reach a level of R-30.
With improved cellulose insulation in your attic you will notice the difference immediately. Cellulose has magnificent insulation characteristics and is installed by being ‘blown-in’ to the attic. Because of its loose form, it can find its way into small cracks, gaps and even into areas not accessible by crawling in the attic.
Cellulose makes a great soundproofing material and may homeowners with cellulose insulation have reported less noise in their home. Cellulose is meant to last a lifetime as it is designed never to settle or lose any of its insulating qualities and is treated with products to deter infestation of rodents and insects and that’s a good thing.
- Installing cellulose insulation in your existing home is one of the best decisions you can make for yourself and your family.
- Walls are fully and tightly insulated, forming a monolithic thermal barrier.
- No more gaps. No more voids. No more drafts. Just years of comfort.
Tests conducted by a fiberglass manufacturer reveal that the actual performance of batts can be 14% to 45% less than their labeled R-value when gaps and voids associated with normal batt installation are considered. With cellulose insulation, you receive the insulation performance you paid for.
- Cellulose insulation is fire retardant, non-toxic, and far more effective than traditional fiberglass insulation.
- Unlike fiberglass insulation which provides a breeding ground for insects and rodent, cellulose is made up of materials that are designed to not allow pest infestation.
- Most homes built prior to 1972 are under insulated or have no insulation at all in their walls.
- Cellulose insulation is rather dense providing a layer of soundproofing in addition to the benefits of reduced heat loss/transfer.
- When insulation is blown in it can reach into the crevices that rolled bats can’t cover ensuring there are no gaps where air can penetrate.
- Well insulated homes reduce heat loss/transfer keeping your home at the desired temperature longer with less heating/cooling energy usage.
- When properly insulated, homeowners see lower heating/cooling bills but what is not seen is also important, CO2 emissions are also cut from reduced energy use saving the environment.
- Our Cellulose insulation install is guaranteed for a lifetime never to settle or lose efficiency
Tried and true, fiberglass insulation has been used for decades when building or upgrading a home. Most commonly installed in large sections, also known as bats, fiberglass makes for a great insulating product when properly installed. Fiberglass is very commonly used in Southern California walls in attics because of its ease of install and low cost.
For many homeowners of older homes, it may be worth a peek in the attic to check if you insulation level is up to par. The rule of thumb is that is you can see the wood framing on the floor of the attic you do not have enough insulation in your attic. Of course, if you are still not sure if your attic is properly insulated or you are unsure if your walls are uninsulated (like many Southern California homes), give us a call at 800-413-3333 and we can help.
When using your air conditioner or furnace in a house with little insulation, the lack of material can cause costly air to be wasted. The energy wasted on an under insulated home can send utility bills soaring when the weather tends to get really hot or really cold. However, once corrected the savings on energy bills are tremendous.

Owens Corning PINK insulation not only saves energy; it also helps conserve natural resources by using widely available and plentiful resources—sand and recycled glass—in its manufacturing process.
OC glass fiber and foam products are made in North America are certified for their recycled content by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), use an average of 40% recycled glass content, and OC rigid foam insulation uses an average of 15% recycled content, with all foam scrap recycled back into the process instead of going to landfills.
Owens Corning is the first insulation and masonry veneer manufacturer to be Green Approved by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), which will help builders and designers select products that meet specific green practices and can earn points towards the National Green Building Standard.
