Attic Restoration in Dallas, TX

This Dallas Homeowner was suffering from old attic insulation as well as air leakage in the attic, lacking comfort and wasting home energy by running the central AC units constantly, plus, they wanted an easier way to get to their two HVAC units in the attic for service. The pictures above show how Advanced Home Comfort fixed their uncomfortable home!

New Attic Insulation

The first step taken was removing all the old insulation, then we air sealed the attic, and installed fresh Cellulose insulation

Catwalk leading to the Air handling units

This catwalk will help the Homeowner tremendously, it is over 90'long, leading from the garage access to the HVAC equipment on the other end of this 4000 sqft home. Now the Homeowner has easy access to the HVAC units for service.

Dirty Insulation

There were 2 levels of insulation in this attic and both have some age to them. It is clear that the old insulation was not removed before new insulation was installed. The first layer of insulation is wet and will cause damage to the drywall if not removed.

Low Insulation R-Value

Insulation levels are specified by R-Value. R-Value is a measure of insulation's ability to resist heat flow. The higher the R-Value, the better the thermal performance of the insulation.

Decking does not allow for the proper R-Value

Decking is a necessary part of the attic because of the air handler but it does decrease energy efficiency. The decrease is caused because the decking does not allow the R-Value to be high enough. Typically the decking only allows for 4 inches of insulation under it but it is recommended to have 12 to 16 inches to resist heat.

Attic Catwalk

Advanced Home Comfort solved the decking R-Value issue by installing a catwalk built with 4" silverglo foam board insulation under it, which increases the resistance to heat while still allowing the home owner to use the decking as they wish.
