Attic Insulation in Your Austin Home
Proper attic insulation installation is one of the simplest, yet most powerful ways to conserve energy. Your HVAC system has already done the work to bring conditioned air into your home. If you lose that air through gaps in your attic (or other places where air can leak!) you’ll be wasting energy and losing money. Beyond that, your home will never feel quite as comfortable as your family deserves unless it’s well insulated from the elements.
At McCullough, we’re really passionate about helping our customers save. We help you conserve energy, and even offer new ways to save through smart consumption of energy, system maintenance, and whole-home weatherization. Attic insulation is just one component of our larger effort to help Austin help the planet.

The Importance of Proper Attic Insulation
The Department of Energy estimates that a properly insulated attic can shave 10 to 50 percent off your heating bill. And it works the opposite way for warm climates; in summer, it helps stabilize your house’s indoor temps to keep cooling needs in check.
Insulating is like having a blanket that keeps heat outside in the summer and inside in the winter. All insulation works the same way: by trapping tiny air pockets that slow the movement of heat out of a house in winter and into a house in summer. Its effectiveness at resisting this movement is called its R-value; the higher the value, the lower your energy bills. But to achieve its rated R-value, insulation must be installed correctly. In fact, a bad job can actually make matters worse.
