Take An #InsulationVacation, Part 9 – California

August 7, 2017

We have finally made it to California! You can do anything you desire in California. Do you want to go skiing? You can do it! Would you like to swim in the ocean? You can do it! Do you want to take your greatest enemy and tie them to stakes in the desert where all they can do is stare at the sun? You can do that, too!

Actually, don’t do that. We know you saw it in an old Western, but it is a terrible, prosecutable idea. Just talk to each other. Use your words.

 

Californians are talking about skiing all summer long. As of this writing, Squaw Valley Ski Resort is still open for business on weekends. Resort managers plan on running open slopes right into the next winter season.

 

California is the sixth most populous state in the country, and most of those people live in Los Angeles. Besides being an entertainment mecca, Los Angeles is known for its beautiful weather. As the old song says, “It never rains in Southern California.” That’s not true, as strong storms earlier this year caused fatal flooding and mudslides.

 

The climate in California is wacky. Let’s say you’ve swum out past the breakers in Santa Monica. The average high temperature in August is 75 degrees. Now, drive inland ten miles to beautiful downtown Burbank. In Burbank, the average high in August is 95 degrees. You’ve gained two degrees per mile!

 

You’ve got to be clever to be an installation installer in California. This state has areas in Zone 2, 3, 4, and 6. Make sure you know the recommended R-values for whichever part of the state you cover. Whether you’re blowing cellulose or spray foam, you can always count on Capitol Machine International for the best equipment for the job.
