Island Comfort is Kauai’s premier retailer of air conditioning systems, but we feel that our job is not complete until your HVAC system is operating at peak efficiency. While our skilled team of technicians will certainly bring your air conditioning system to max capacity you will not be able to get the most out of it until you have quality attic insulation.
Attic insulation is the barrier between your roof and your home. Roofing materials retain heat given off by the sun which causes your roof to “bake”, much like a hot sidewalk. With high quality attic insulation your home will reflect exterior heat but also prevent cool air from the inside of your home from escaping. Attic insulation also reduces the flow of humidity into your home keeping you not only cooler but more comfortable as well!
If you have a fully-functioning A/C but you still feel that your cooling bill is too high then you probably have low quality or degraded attic insulation. After a certain period of time the cellulose or fiberglass that your insulation is made from “settles” causing it to be no longer effective. Once this happens your air conditioner will be working overtime to compensate for the lack of insulation and you will be spending more money on your energy bill.
It is best to replace your attic insulation sooner rather than later. Since replacement insulation reduces the strain on your HVAC unit new attic insulation will extend the life of your air conditioner and prevent you from having to make costly emergency repairs. By replacing your attic insulation the savings you make on your heating/cooling bill will pay for itself in no time!
