Santa Clarita Home And Attic Insulation
Santa Clarita properties experience a Mediterranean climate, making home-and-attic insulation a necessity. During the summer months, the temperatures tend to range from 75 to 100 degrees. Summer solar heat can radically increase the temperature in homes, requiring owners to operate their cooling systems continually to maintain a comfortable temperature range. On the other hand, in winter months, the standard temperature range is between 40 and 65 degrees. Most homeowners will need to run their furnaces to create a comfortable interior climate.
Uses for Home-and-Attic Insulation in Santa Clarita Properties
Home-and-attic insulation works with air seal and energy-efficient windows to create a thermal envelope around Santa Clarita residences. A true thermal envelope helps to efficiently maintain interior comfort, blocking out external heat and keeping interior heat from escaping. In addition, interior insulation can also help to block sound flow, as the sound waves are absorbed by the insulation.
Property owners can choose among a number of insulation materials, including fiberglass and cellulose. While cellulose must have a flame-retardant coating applied to it, fiberglass has this property naturally. Most responsible research indicates that the chemicals used to make cellulose safe are non-toxic.
Residents concerned with the environmental impact of these materials can rest assured that they are doing their part whether they use fiberglass, recycled glass, or cellulose recycled paper.
Santa Clarita residents and builders can find home-and-attic insulation at Progressive Insulation & Windows. The company carries a range of fiberglass products from Johns Manville, all of which are made without formaldehyde, or Green Fiber, made from 85% recycled paper.
