Many take insulation for granted. Why, exactly, is it so important that homes and commercial buildings need to be insulated? Many people would say that
insulation saves them money on utilities. While that is certainly true, the most important benefit of insulation is comfort.
Insulation acts as a barrier to retain comfortable, inside temperatures and to repel undesirable outside temperatures. Proven time and time again,
insulation reduces the exchange of heat through walls, attics, ducts, and roofs. A well-insulated building or home minimizes warm escaping in the winter
and retails cooler air in the summer. This process reduces the amount of energy used for heating and cooling inside the house. Having a well insulated home
provides comfort to your family and padding to your wallet, as proper insulation can cut your heating bill by as much as half. For people that live or work
in bustling, noisy areas, insulation can also reduce noise levels.
For maximum efficiency, don’t let outside air creep in through cracks and gaps in your windows and doors. When you insulate, make sure to spend the extra
time caulk or seal windows, door jambs, etc. Drafty areas require more power to cool and heat compared to well-sealed areas.
As you can see, insulation is not only about saving money. Insulation is about comfort. When you’re ready to get the most out of your home, contact a
professional insulation installation company.
