Attic Insulation Richardson and Attic Insulation Richardson, TX
SAVE MONEY, WHILE STAYING COOLER in the SUMMER and WARMER in the WINTER. The number one way to save money on utility bills is through making sure your Richardson home has sufficient attic insulation. In the past, builders used basically anything to keep moisture and hot or cold air out of the home. In Richardson, many homes are severely under insulated considering the heat that accompanies Texas summers. The EPA recommends an R value between 30 and 60, whereas most homes don’t even come close.
What are the effects of low or insufficient insulation? In Richardson, attics can reach up to 150 degrees. Insufficiently low insulation can lead to warm spots in the home that can result in a huge strain on your A/C system. Your AC system will be forced to run longer cycles resulting in increased electric bills. This holds true for winter use too. If your home is losing warm air then your heater or furnace must work harder and longer to maintain a comfortable temperature. With Efficient Home Solutions, the process of insulating your home has become almost a science. Our team of expert insulation installers are also experts in home energy efficiency. Each technician is NATE and EPA certified and trained regularly on the changes and updates to home efficiency recommendations and best practices.

An Attic Access Tent is the ultimate attic access cover. It insulates and seals! No tex home or attic should be without one.
The attic tent creates an air-tight barrier, and fits standard folding attic stair sizes. Zippers allow for safe and easy access. Attic tents seal out insulation, Carbon Monoxide, allergens and dust particles which improves indoor air quality as well.
