Adding insulation to the attic saves from 10-50% on energy bills. Older homes never had as much insulation as more modern homes, and whatever insulation you have reduces in volume over time. In fact, your home may go from insulated to under-insulated in as little as 5 to 10 years. So, when you’re making other energy upgrades, such as roofing, stucco, AC units, window or door replacement, adding insulation is a relatively low cost but helpful improvement.
Your savings will depend on the R factor and the amount of insulation. The more you add, and the higher the R factor, the more you save. However, there is a point where you may spend more than necessary for incremental savings. Jayco has experience estimating and working with insulation, and we can help you determine the R factor and amount of insulation that’s best for your home.
Jayco uses high quality Owens Corning® insulation material. Owens Corning is made with 99% natural materials and has nearly twice the recycled content of other brands.
The benefits of insulation are quick; the entire process is typically less than two hours. The result is that your air conditioner or heater don’t have to work as hard to keep cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter. Less work = lower energy bills.
