Why Is Insulation Important?

Why Is Insulation Important?

Besides heating and windows, we deal with the other four major areas of the building envelope. Attics/ceiling, crawl spaces/floors, walls, and air sealing. Many have the perception that insulation makes your home warmer and it does in a sense. But, what it really does is help keep the wanted heat or cool inside your home and all the unwanted heat and cool outside of your home. Our goal is to contribute to the process of making your home warmer in the winters and cooler in the summers. You can have the best insulation in your home but if you don’t have a good heating and air conditioning system it won’t matter. And vice versa, you could have the best heating and air conditioning system with inadequate insulation and it won’t matter. It takes a combination of each to truly accomplish the desired temperature comfort in your home. Insulation Co. assists with the insulation and weatherization aspect of your home. We offer free estimates and consultations. If insulation is not the problem in your home we will be upfront and point you in the right direction of the real issue. Sometimes it can be little DIY tasks, contact us today!

What Does Insulation Do?

Heating and cooling account for 50 to 70% of the energy used in the average American home. Inadequate insulation and air leakage are leading causes of energy waste in most homes.

The Importance of Insulation

*Saves money and our nation’s limited energy resources

*Makes your house more comfortable by helping to maintain a uniform temperature throughout the house, and makes walls, ceilings, and floors warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

What Are The Benefits of Insulation?

The amount of energy you conserve will depend on several factors:

  • your local climate
  • the size, shape, and construction of your house
  • the living habits of your family
  • the type and efficiency of the heating and cooling systems
  • the fuel you use.

Once the energy savings have paid for the installation cost, energy conserved is money saved, and saving energy will be even more important as utility rates go up. There are many other things you can do to conserve energy in your home as well. You save energy by sealing air leaks, selecting more energy-efficient appliances, etc.
