The Benefits of Attic and Ceiling Insulation:
Living in Southern California, we have year round warm/hot weather! So investing into your home isn't such a bad idea. You want your home to benefit you and not beat you down with high energy bills!
As we already know heat rises up, even if it happens to be cold outside; your furnace heat is still traveling up. The heat is getting trapped inside your attic, creating heat up to or over 100℉! That’s why your home never feels as if it's getting cool enough, and you're blasting the AC more so to get the temperature to drop. Even in cold weather; trapped heat is causing moisture in the rooms with signs like windows fogging up, peeling paint, and moisture that can lead into bigger problems down the road.
When a homeowner has insulation in their home they will be able to experience all the benefits!
- Year round thermal comfort
- Reduced noise sounds
- Savings on energy cost
- Helping the environment
- Condensation control
Don't just take our word for it consider what the U.S Department of Energy says about Insulation..
Understanding Insulation by the U.S Department of Energy
Some Basics About Insulation:
“Insulation in your home provides resistance to heat flow. The more heat flow resistance your insulation provides, the lower your heating and cooling costs. Properly insulating your home not only reduces heating and cooling costs, but also improves comfort.”
“To understand how insulation works it helps to understand heat flow, which involves three basic mechanisms -- conduction, convection, and radiation. Conduction is the way heat moves through materials, such as when a spoon placed in a hot cup of coffee conducts heat through its handle to your hand. Convection is the way heat circulates through liquids and gases, and is why lighter, warmer air rises, and cooler, denser air sinks in your home. Radiant heat travels in a straight line and heats anything solid in its path that absorbs its energy.”
“Most common insulation materials work by slowing conductive heat flow and -- to a lesser extent -- convective heat flow. Radiant barriers and reflective insulation systems work by reducing radiant heat gain. To be effective, the reflective surface must face an air space.”
“Properly insulating your home will decrease this heat flow by providing an effective resistance to the flow of heat.”

How Often Do I Need To Replace My Home's Insulation
Insulation is ignored all the time. It's like that concept “out of site.. Out of mind…” But, don't let that be the case for you. Be self conscious on what your home is doing and not doing for you. You work hard for your money and you don’t want to just throw it away; right? If you cannot remember the last time the insulation was even looked at then; there is a problem. You might want to consider if you even have insulation throughout the house, and how long ago it was put into the attic and/or walls. Pure Eco Inc. recommends that insulation should be replaced every 15 to 20 years. If you just bought your home; you will need to consider asking what maintenance has been done prior. If you notice any of the rooms not cooling or warming up as it should then, you will need to consider replacing or adding insulation soon.
What Does R-Value Mean?
“R” value is the measure of resistance to conduct heat flow through the thickness of the material. In other words, the higher the R-value, the greater the resistance is.
The R- Value starts at R-19 and goes up from there, the higher the R-Value the better the Strength. The level of strength needed depends on your climate. Pure Eco Inc. can guide you the right direction on how much insulation and strength you will need in your home, along with proper installation. Remember, Proper placement, quality of insulation, and the right amount of insulation; is the formula for a lower energy bill cost.

Methods of Installing Attic and Ceiling Insulation:
Blown In Insulation
Using a blown in machine we are able to fill in between rafters of the attic or ceiling up to 6 inches to 2 ft. with insulation of either fiberglass or cellulose (customers preference).
Reason why customers chose blown in insulation: It's ideally used in wall cavities, attic floors, irregularly shaped areas, and for filling in around obstructions.
To ensure there are no air leaks we recommend you take advantage of our Air Seal Service. With this service we use a spray foam to seal any gaps around plumbing pipes, ceiling perforations, and any holes were electrical pipes run through. Another reason why we recommend this service to keep any debris from exiting out through vents.
We place batt insulation between the rafters instead of blown In. This consist of soundproofing (roxul), Fiberglass, or Cellulose ( customers preference) with a vapor barrier backing.
A vapor barrier’s purpose is to prevent condensation, that is created by the air. Warm air by nature carries moisture and gravitates to the cold air which creates condensation.
When installing insulation, we first determine the climate you live in. If you're in a warmer climate we face the batts up towards the roof where the sun hits. Now, if the climate is always cold then we face the batts down because of the heat created in the household. To ensure the insulation is not receiving any condensation, we place unfaced batts perpendicular on top of the first layer of vapor barrier insulation. This is more efficient, think about where the insulation meets your ceiling joist there are seams in between. When we place the unfaced batts we are ensuring those seams are secured.
The reason why we layer with unfaced batts instead of the vapor barrier batts.
If we was to layer two vapor barrier batts on top of each other, the vapor barrier below will collect onto the next vapor barrier, wetting the top vapor barrier, and trapping the moisture in between. If this happens you are creating problems.
Incentives and Rebates
Did you know Government agencies and utilities offer different programs for homeowners to gain rebates or incentives? Yes, the Government encourages homeowners to make their home energy efficient. That’s why they offer programs to encourage you (the homeowner) to make these changes! So, take advantage and make your home energy efficient.
