The R-value of insulation represents its resistance to the flow of heat. Heat naturally travels from warm to cool areas, attempting to reach equilibrium. Insulation slows this process. In the winter, proper insulation slows heat loss to the outside air. In the summer, insulation increases the time needed for heat to migrate from the outside to the inside of your home. The R-value of an insulation can be affected by moisture, compression, temperature and other factors.
It varies by type of insulation, but in general, as long as your existing insulation is not wet or damaged, it is likely okay to add additional insulation over what is currently there. Blown-in cellulose or fiberglass can be applied over nearly any insulation, as can fiberglass batts. If you already have a layer of fiberglass batts, install the new layer perpendicular to the first to seal the seams. Do not add insulation with a vapor barrier or kraft facing, as this may trap moisture between layers. If your current insulation is damaged or under-performing, or if it contains harmful materials like asbestos, it should be safely removed before installing all-new insulation. Consult our professionals at OJ Insulation to learn the best way to add more insulation to your California home.
Adding insulation to a home is usually a good thing, as many homes in Southern California lack the recommended amounts, and adding more can greatly reduce energy costs. Going beyond the recommended amounts may not be cost-effective, however, as the first layers will do most of the work, and too much insulation can actually trap air pollutants and moisture in your home. For Southern California, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends up to R-60 in the attic, R-21 in walls and R-25 in floors and crawl spaces. Above that, the potential problems and minimal additional savings may not be worth the cost.
Blown-in fiberglass, cellulose, mineral wool or spray foam can last multiple decades or even the lifetime of the home. Fiberglass batts can last 15 to 20 years before the insulation starts falling off the facing, though its insulation value does not change unless it becomes wet or damaged.
