Here at Polk County Insulation, we have been providing homes in the Polk County, Florida area with insulation for over 30 years. We take great pride in helping our clients keep their homes comfortable at more consistent temperatures and reduce energy costs. We also make great efforts to help the people of our community understand their options with insulation, such as which types are best for their home and how much insulation is needed for your home to be properly insulated. Although many factors are taken into consideration to determine exact amounts for your home, a main consideration is the insulation R-value.
Insulation R-values are not something many homeowners are very familiar with, but having a basic understanding of them can help you make important decisions regarding your home’s insulation. Insulation R-values are related to the thermal resistance of the material used for insulation. In other words, the R-value is determined by the way heat passes through the thickness of the insulation material and the extent it is able to keep heat inside or outside of your home. The higher the R-value, the better the performance of the insulation.
Here at Polk County Insulation, we can help you know what R-value is needed for your home based on the weather, which part of your home you’re insulating, and other factors. Then we can help you decide the best type of insulation to use to achieve your goals. To talk with one of our highly trained professionals, give us a call at Polk County Insulation. You may also find that there are rebates or discounts available to you for improving your home’s insulation. We can help you determine if this would apply to your situation.
