Almost every homeowner can save both energy and money by adding insulation to their house. Good insulation is permanent, maintenance free and can return your investment by lowering your energy bills.
To make certain your home is as energy efficient as possible, you must use insulation to create a "thermal envelope" around the living space. Heat moves from warm areas to cold ones, so on cold days, the heat in your house tries to get to the colder outside, and on warm days, the outside heat tries to get in. Insulation keeps your home comfortable and reduces costs for heating and cooling.
Insulation is the most basic, cost effective way to lower your homes energy usage and improve the comfort level of your home.
Insulation is an important part of your home's construction and essential for keeping your home as quiet, comfortable and energy efficient as possible. Recent studies from the U.S. Department of Energy found that over a third of new homes have lower levels of insulation installed than specified and an additional fifth have serious installation problems that result in significantly decreased effectiveness of the insulation. In addition, virtually all of the homes studied were found to have numerous insulation installation defects that reduce the performance of the insulation well below its rated R-value.
What is the benefit of attic insulation?
Heating and cooling systems consume 50% to 70% of the energy used in the average American home. You will save on your energy costs if you reduce the amount of energy needed for heating and cooling. Insulation helps your home retain heat in cold weather and reject heat in warm seasons.

Attic Fans - Installation and Service
Attic fans are designed to exhaust the trapped hot air out of your attic.
Attic fans work on a thermostat and when you attic reaches a certain temperature the attic fan turns on to blow the hot air out. Dr. Air Care recommends attic fans to people who have existing cooling systems since these fans can considerably lessen the demand on air conditioning units and make the upper levels of the home cooler. These fans work very well in the southern California climate since it is dry and cools down in the evenings. They can be installed on the roof or in a gable of your home. For these fans to work properly the attic space needs to have intake ventilation as well. The amount of intake depends on the size of fan you have installed. Our experts can diagnose your specific situation and get you on the road to having a cool, comfortable, and energy efficient summer!
How does attic insulation work?
Heat flows naturally from a warmer to a cooler space. In cold weather, it flows from heated rooms to the unheated attic, garage or basement, or to the outdoors. In hot weather, heat flows from outside your home to its interior. To maintain comfort, the heat lost in winter must be replaced by your heating system, and the heat gained in summer must be removed by your air conditioner. Insulation resists the flow of heat, preventing unwanted circulation. Thus, in a well-insulated house, rooms stay warmer in winter, cooler in summer, with less energy expenditure.
Does your attic look like this?

-- WARNING --
If the insulation in your home is over 20 years old it is no longer effective. Insulation breaks down and no longer is able to do its job and ward away heat. Many homes are wasting 60-70% of their energy because of this broken down insulation and drastically increasing their utility bills. Also with age it gets dirty and becomes filled with bacteria and is unhealthy for you and your family.

It probably does not have enough. In much of the housing in America, attic insulation levels are inadequate at best. That is because many homebuilders
homebuilders only offer standard and not optimal levels of attic insulation, in order to maintain competitive selling prices. Older homes are also very likely to have inadequate attic insulation. But even in a newer home, additional attic insulation will save enough money in reduced utility bills to pay for itself, and those savings will, of course, continue year after year. Upgraded attic insulation will also increase the value of your house
