As a homeowner, attic insulation is one of the most profitable decisions you will make from a return on investment (ROI) basis. Specifically, energy bills (heating and cooling your home) average somewhere in the range of 50-70% for a typical home. Losing the heating and cooling that you are paying for due to poor attic insulation is just a waste of money. Yet with the proper attic insulation, you can reduce the loss of your heating and cooling, and also stop warm outside air from entering your home. For those who are energy conscience an ideal “go green” solution that conserves energy and protects the environment.

How Attic Insulation Works

Attic Insulation Owens Corning R-Value in inches

Owens Corning R-Value In Inches Chart

Basically, temperature changes within your home happen naturally when in the winter heat escapes the living areas of a home to cooler spaces such as attics, basements, and attached garages. During the summer, the outside heat will make its way indoors to your home’s interior. Your home’s heating and cooling system work to maintain a consistent temperature based on your thermostat settings.


Attic insulation works to combat this natural occurrence by limiting air movement and is an effective insulator. Insulation is rated by thermal resistance known as R-Value. The greater the R-Value the greater the insulating value. R-value requirements vary by region with colder climates requiring thicker insulation levels.

What Our Customers Have to Say:

"We were near the end of the inspection contingency and needed to schedule the inspection ASAP. Based on the reviews I called NuHome - they were open Saturday and were able to confirm an appointment on Monday! Josh arrived promptly at the property for the appointment. He was well dressed, very professional, and extremely knowledgeable. He explained that the roof was actually in decent condition, and did not pressure me into replacing it. He was able to identify the model and year of the different windows installed in the property, and determined that they did not need replacing either.  He pointed out that the aluminum siding had seen better days, and could be replaced for aesthetic reasons, but was not critical for preserving the integrity of the home.  Josh obviously had substantial experience, but I was especially impressed with his honesty; stating that he wasn't going to sell us something we didn't need. I will absolutely call back when we decide to replace the siding!" - Jacob D.
