Insulation is measured by R-value- its ability to resist heat flow. Higher R-values mean more insulating power. The attic is typically the best place to add insulation and improve the energy efficiency and comfort of your home. Under current energy codes in the Charlotte, North Carolina market, all new homes in zone 3 are insulated with an R-30, or about 11 inches of attic insulation. Just North of Charlotte in Iredell County it changes to zone 4 which requires R38 in the attic about 13 inches of attic insulation.
It is important for the insulation to be evenly installed with no low points. When adding attic insulation, you do not have to use the same type of insulation that exists. Contact Austin Company for a free estimate and professional installation.
