Attic Insulation in Houston, TX

At Village Plumbing & Air, we take comfort and energy efficiency seriously. A great deal of air and heat can escape through your attic, which is why it’s critical to have high-quality insulation. We specialize in blown-in insulation that can be quickly placed so that your HVAC efficiency will improve immediately.

Our technicians are trained to provide some of the most common types of blown-in attic insulation. These include cellulose insulation, which is made out of recycled paper. It is economically friendly, fire- and insect-resistant, and maintains its integrity over time while providing an R-value of 3.5 to 3.8. Fiberglass insulation, much of which is made of recycled glass, costs less and also has fire-resistant properties. An R-value of around 2.2 to 2.9 per inch makes it sufficiently insulating, depending on where you live. In Houston, this can be enough, especially if you can fit a fair amount of insulation in your attic.

Why Install Attic Insulation

Just as warm air can escape your home in winter, it can also be forced in during hot, humid summer days. Blown-in insulation prevents hot air from getting in and forcing your air conditioner to work harder. It’ll fit into the tightest nooks and crannies. All the while, cellulose and fiberglass insulation can reduce condensation and is soundproof. We use the proper blowing equipment to make installation fast and simple and, once we’re done, you may see significant savings on your energy bills.

Blown-in insulation can be inserted in tighter spaces than traditional rolled-up batt insulation. If you have AC and heater units installed in the attic, it can fill the space between them. Blown-in insulation is just as effective at resisting conductive heat flow as other types of insulation. Borate treatments help deter insects and vermin, which is another advantage to consider. And if you already have a layer of insulation, blown-in attic insulation can be placed on top to improve efficiency even further.

Cost of Blown-In Attic Insulation

There is no one-size fits all cost calculation for blown-in insulation. The overall cost depends on many factors, including where you live, the climate, optimal R-value, size of your attic, and what areas require insulation. Different insulating materials are priced differently. You also need to factor in the cost of labor and use of heavy equipment. 

But no matter what the ultimate cost is or the size of your budget, Village Plumbing & Air will always provide a fair and honest quote. We evaluate your home and determine exactly what you need; there are no hidden costs once we get to work. A full inspection can also find air sealing, ventilation, and air quality issues to address and ensure your new insulation is as effective as it can be.

Condenser

A condenser is the equipment people most recognize as their air conditioner. It’s the large box-like unit located on the outside of your home somewhere.

Coils

There are evaporator coils (in your attic unit) and condenser coils (on your outdoor equipment) they are both essential to the function of your HVAC system and it’s good to always keep them clean. Did you know dust & dirt is the #1 killer of HVAC systems?

Air Handler or Furnace

The furnace is the heart of your heating system, and is sometimes part of the air handler. The air handler connects to your duct system and can contain filters as well as heating and cooling elements.
