R-VALUE DEFINED: The insulation performance of all insulation products is measured by a common standard: the R-value. R-value measures resistance to heat flow; the higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power. R-value is usually determined by the thickness of the insulation. With the AttiCat® Blown-In Insulation System, you can blow-in insulation as thick as you want to achieve any desired R-value!
HOW INSULATION WORKS: Fiberglas™ Insulation works on the principle of trapped air pockets. Millions of tiny air pockets form between the tangled strands of the Fiberglas™ Insulation. These air pockets resist the passage of heat flow through the material, reducing heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. Generally, the thicker the insulation, the more air pockets and the higher the R-value.
AttiCat® Expanding Blown-In PINK® FIBERGLAS™ Insulation is designed for application in attics of new and existing homes.
• AttiCat® PINK® FIBERGLAS™ Insulation is manufactured in accordance with ASTM C764 Type I (pneumatic application).
• R-values are determined in accordance with ASTM C687.
• In accordance with ASTM E136. Is considered noncombustible by the model building codes when tested.
COLORADO R-VALUE: The U.S. Department of Energy recommends that Colorado homes have an R-value of any where from R49-R60. In our experience the majority of homes in Colorado are extremely under this R-value. This can cause homeowners to lose money by paying more for their energy bills than needed.
Most insulation jobs pay for themselves within months based on the savings from your energy bill.
Up to 40% of your home's hot/cold air will escape into the attic. Colorado Roofing Solutions can help make sure your home is properly insulated to help prevent the loss of conditioned air.
