Your home’s insulation is the primary defense against heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer, assisting you to maintain a consistent temperature within your home. Updating your home’s insulation is a cost-effective way to reduce your energy consumption, minimize noise pollution, and save you money. A well-insulated home will save you money on electricity as your home will be more efficient, requiring a smaller effort from your HVAC system to keep your home feeling comfortable. Updating your insulation is sometimes viewed as a long-term investment by the professionals that offer insulation services as you pay for the service upfront, but reep the benefits and savings for decades to come.
Many homeowners are surprised to find out that you can lose between 30% to 40% of your total heat loss from your walls. Many expect their roof to be the primary culprit for heat loss and gain. But, your roof only accounts for about 25% of your home’s heat loss. Your Window and door frames are the 3rd biggest area for heat loss and gain as they account for about 20% in total.
Now that we have highlighted why insulation is important and where we lose and gain most of the heat in our homes, let’s discuss how home insulation services can assist you:
1. Reduce Energy Bills
One of the numerous advantages of a well-insulated home is that it can help you save up to 40% on your heating and cooling bills. To keep your bills as low as possible is dependent on numerous criteria such as the size of your home and the type of property. Domestic heating systems don’t have to work as hard or as long to attain a comfortable temperature when a home is well- insulated. It will also help your property run more efficiently, which will maintain and, in certain situations, boost its value.
Dry, warm, and comfortable to live in is the expectation we have of most homes. However, this is unfortunately not always the case in every home. In some cases you experience drastic temperature changes from one floor to another or even one room to another, you can experience cold or hot spots and even drafts. A well-insulated home helps provide you with comfort by reducing the heat loss during the colder months and heat gain during the warmer months.
Home insulation also prevents condensation from forming, which can result in dampness and mold. This condensation can lead to property damage including bubbling paint, water damaged walls and flooring in your home. What’s more, dampness in the home can even have a negative impact on your health and cause chronic health problems such as asthma, depending on the level of severity.
