Most homes don’t have enough insulation to keep you comfortable. Many older homes have no insulation at all in critical wall, ceiling areas and above garages.

Many newer homes are not being built to code and have minimum requirements of insulation levels and don’t come close to protecting your living space from temperature extremes.

Rooms too hot or too cold? Utility bills too high? Dr. Energy Saver has the solution.
Don’t blame your HVAC system if rooms in your home get too hot or too cold at certain times of the year, or if your electric and fuel bills are high. More often than not, these problems are caused by inadequate insulation.

But what parts of your house need an insulation upgrade? What types of insulation will give you the best performance and value?

Attic Insulation

Heat passes very easily through a poorly insulated attic. In the winter, heated interior air rises naturally by convection and escapes into the attic through air leaks in your home. Conductive heat loss through the cold ceiling makes rooms directly under the attic even colder.

However, on a hot summer day as attic temperatures rise to the 140 degree range and heat moves into your living space making you hot and uncomfortable.

Many houses have just 9 in. of attic insulation (about R-19) in regions where the U.S. Dept. of Energy recommends 16 in. (about R-60) of insulation. How did this happen? For starters, local building codes only stipulate minimum performance standards, which are far below what home energy experts recognize as necessary today.Insulation was often overlooked in an effort to cut costs or because cheap heating fuel made insulation all but unnecessary.

Regardless of what caused this construction defect, Mainline Home Energy Solutions Dr. Energy Saver division has the cure: expert sealing of air leaks, followed by expertly installed new attic insulation.

What is R- Value?

R-value is a measure of thermal resistance, or the ability to prevent the transfer of heat. The larger the number, the harder that insulation is working at preventing heat conduction. The less heat loss, the lower your energy bills.

Heat moves in three ways: conduction, convection or radiation.

R-value addresses conduction: the transfer of heat through a material (your walls).

Convection occurs when heat and moisture move, and this happens when a home’s envelope — siding, sheathing, walls — are not tight. Convection issues are solved by air-sealing a home.

Radiation is when heat flows from a hotter material to a cooler one. For example, black roofing attracts heat and transfers it into the attic.

While a higher R-value is important for providing a thermal barrier (preventing conduction), it does not address radiation or convection. Only by air-sealing the home, improving insulation and addressing radiant heat on the roof can a home reach optimum energy efficiency.

Upping Your R-Value

Insulating your home will improve its R-value and help conserve energy, regardless of other air-sealing efforts you make. Every little bit helps.

Choose insulation. The most common types of insulation on the market today are fiberglass batting, cellulose (paper fiber) and spray. Spray foam provides higher R-values but tends to cost quite a bit more. Ideally you apply spray on the outside surface, which is difficult for most people because their homes have siding or brick — an impediment for installation.

Aim for high standards. Generally speaking, walls should be R-19 and the roof should be R-30 or R-40. You can kick that up and shoot for standards set by the Passive House Institute US — R-30 walls and an R-60 roof.

Think beyond R-value. As you explore ways to tighten your home and prevent heat transfer of all kinds, improve the building envelope with more secure siding and better roofing that will prevent convection and radiation.
