Insulation Insights

Insulation is an important component of your custom home that may not be visible but plays a significant role in providing comfort and energy efficiency. AR Homes® Panama City (BCB Construction LLC) pays close attention to detail and values personalized luxury as we build custom homes for our buyers. With years of experience in the Panama City market, we understand how important insulation is in creating your dream home. 


One essential feature to consider is the R-Value, which measures an insulation material’s resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-Value, the more effective the insulation. The recommended R-Values vary depending on geographic location, construction materials, and climatic conditions. Your builder can help fine-tune these suggestions to ensure that your custom home’s insulation needs are met with superior quality. 

Starting with the ceiling, which requires the highest R-Value, we suggest R-30 to R-38 for warmer climates and up to R-49 for cooler northern states. A whole-house approach ensures proper insulation, adequate ventilation, and moisture control that maintains comfortable temperatures. With an emphasis on soundproofing, upgrading from 2×4 to 2×6 framing can add 50% more R-Value, providing an extra layer of peace and quiet. 

Spray Foam

Notably, spray foam insulation is one of the best on the market, with the ability to expand 100 times its original volume, sealing the entire wall system from air and insects. It saves up to 50% on monthly heating and cooling costs and significantly reduces the chances of mold and mildew, increasing energy efficiency and sustainability. 

AC Ductwork

AC ductwork is also a critical component for energy savings. Conventional insulation causes conditioned air to escape through the ductwork in the attic, resulting in higher costs and negative pressure. However, with our innovative One Thermal Envelope, the ductwork is located within the home’s thermal envelope, preventing air leakage, and reducing energy expenses. Additionally, by keeping the attic temperature higher relative to the dew point, condensation and the growth of mold and mildew are significantly reduced.
