Dealing with Extreme Heat
Your attic requires additional protection from the scorching summer sun in Phoenix. Insulation has double duty: it keeps you cool in the summer and warm on those occasional cold evenings.
Like shopping for the perfect garment, the goal in selecting the proper insulation for your Phoenix attic should be to maximize both comfort and practicality.
