The Grand Canyon State is primarily known for its arid climate, temperate winters, and blistering summer heat. Spend any amount of time in Arizona, and you’ll quickly come to realize that a well-insulated home is essential to your day-to-day comfort.
Let’s explore a few of the reasons why you should consider properly insulating your residential home or commercial establishment.
Save Money By Optimizing Energy Efficiency
Hot and dry summers are the norm in Arizona with average high temps hovering between 90 °F and 120 °F. Due to the sheer number of hot days in the average summer, the likelihood of running your air conditioning unit is near 100%. For that reason, King Insulation helps to bring affordable residential insulation services to those who need it most.
Insulation Options Include:
- Spray Foam
- Blown-In Fiberglass
A well-insulated home will better retain the cooled air that you introduce through your air conditioning unit. Additionally, a well-insulated home will prevent hot air from leaking in and cold air from leaking out. With properly installed insulation, it is possible to recoup up to 20% of your cooling/heating costs within a calendar year.
Reduce the Size of Your Carbon Footprint
As the climate crisis becomes increasingly in focus, it comes down to us to reduce the size of our carbon footprint where we can. In Arizona, year-round warm temperatures can lead to sky-high energy use, culminating in the emission of carbon compounds into the environment.
According to a report published in cooperation with Dr. Jonathan Levy, residential electricity use around the nation would drop by at least 5% were individuals to outfit their homes with insulation based upon the International Energy Conservation Code.
Homeowners that turn to energy-saving insulation will find that they need to use their A/C and HVAC unit less while enjoying more comfort. This drops your carbon emission level while reducing energy consumption at the same time. Who says helping the planet has to be hard?
Protect Your Home From Damage
While Phoenix only gets around 8 inches of rain per year, moisture damage is still a real issue that homeowners have to maintain awareness of. To protect your home against potential damage caused by moisture, consider insulating with spray foam made of polyurethane.
Not only does polyurethane help to insulate your home from energy loss, but it also works up to 50% more effectively than competing forms of insulation like fiberglass and cellulose. Additionally, spray foam acts as both a noise and vapor barrier to provide exceptional protection.
Protecting your home against mold, moisture, and rot caused by leaks can save time, money, and stress!
