Further research has found 85% of homes, in the United States, are not energy-efficient due to insufficient insulation levels. The Department of Energy highly recommends an R30 to R60 value of fiberglass insulation for homes in Lucas and the surrounding area. Insufficient insulation allows hot or cold air to move through the roof and then into your living area, regardless of the season. Thanks to the laws of thermodynamics, hot air rises and cool air falls, therefore the continuous motion causes an inadequately insulated Lucas home or living area to become uncomfortable, either too cold or too warm. Fiberglass insulation traps the air in the attic allowing your living area to remain at a consistent, comfortable temperature year-round. The addition of fiberglass blown insulation is the simplest and most cost-effective, money saving method for the reduction of energy bills. Other amazing benefits of fiberglass insulation are amplified comfort of living area, extended life of your air conditioning system, noise control, condensation control, and energy conservation.
Basically, insulation is the fastest return on investment of all energy upgrades, and is certainly the first place to start when you want to increase the efficiency and comfort of your home, in Lucas.

LUCAS HOME INSULATION TIPS The act of insulating your Lucas home is the number one method that saves energy and money. Insulation significantly reduces the transfer of air through the walls, attic, roof and air ducts. Hence, reducing the escape of warm air during the winter and cold air during the summer and reducing the amount of energy needed for heating and cooling. When you think about it, it all makes good financial sense for Lucas homeowners. We have several tips to consider before any insulation project: Locate problem areas – To determine the areas of your home that require additional insulation, we need to find where heat is being lost the most. Efficient Home Solutions can locate these locations via a professional energy audit. A simple homeowner test can be performed by using the hand test. Dampen your hand with water and run it near your home’s walls, doors, windows and outlets. If you feel your hand get colder, air is likely seeping through that spot. Addition of weather-stripping – Windows and doors are primarily responsible for home heat loss. For a simple and quick fix, we recommend sealing cracks around windows and doors with weather strips. Available at your local hardware store, they can be cut to size, and installed quickly.
The right R-Value – Before purchasing insulation for your Lucas home, it is very important to get the correct R-Value. Exactly which R-value is best is dependent upon the part of the country you live in and which part of the house you are insulating. For Lucas homes, the recommended R value is between R30 and R60, according to the Department of Energy. Efficient Home Solutions is the leading installer of insulation Lucas residents.
