Insulation minimizes the exchange of heat through walls, ducts, attics or a roof. In a correctly insulated home, less warm air gets out from a house in winter, and less cold air escapes in summer.
This results in a reduction of energy needed for cooling and heating.
Insulate your Floors, Walls and Attics
The exterior of your home is the barricade that blocks temperatures of the outside and inside air from equalizing.
When floors, walls and attics are insulated correctly, the amount of energy your heating and cooling systems require to warm up and cool down the air in your home.
Considering that heat rises, insulating your roof or attic is important in order to keep warm air inside during cold climates.
Seal your Air Leaks
Even correctly insulated walls may let warm or cool air out through gaps and cracks around doors and windows.
Homes that are drafty may require more power to cool and heat, so save your energy consumption by insulating to stop air leaks.
Insulate your Ducts
Homes with air-conditioning systems and central heating that force air through a duct, leaking ducts might lower energy efficiency.
Insulate and seal all ducts to allow warm and cool air to get where it is supported to go as effectively as possible.
Correct insulation is extremely important when ducts travel through unfurnished areas such as basements or attics.
While insulation can reduce heat transfer by physically blocking it, reflective insulation is installed on the attic’s floor where it returns heat radiated into the attic by a hot roof and prevents it from going into the living spaces below.
Insulating your home is the greatest way to save energy consumption and money.
When it comes down to it, insulation is about maintaining temperatures between the outside and inside without overworking your air conditioning system.
