Proper Insulation is a major factor in every home to maintain temperature, reduce energy bills, and create a comfortable environment. Homes that are properly insulated not only save home owners money, but also increase value.
Your attic is designed to provide a protective barrier from the heat and the cold throughout each season. When a home is not properly insulated, the air leaks and the attic does not properly do it’s job. About 90% of homes in the U.S. are reportedly under insulated and it plays a huge factor in energy efficiency. Not only will insulating your attic result in a much better overall air quality, but it can also reduce your energy bills by about 12%. When a home is properly insulated, the HVAC system will require less cycles and less air will leak from the home, therefore resulting in savings.
Top Benefits Of New Insulation:
1.) Reduces Energy Costs: A properly designed and installed insulation system immediately reduces the need for energy and results in significant savings. An unbelievable amount of energy is lost through uninsulated valves, bare pipes, or defective insulation.
2.) Control Condensation: Insulation with a good vapor retarder controls condensation and limits corrosion on cold piping, ducts, chillers, and roof drains. Sufficient thickness is needed to keep the surface temperature above the dew point temperature of the ambient air.
3.) Great Return On Investment: A properly designed and installed insulation system provides an excellent return on investment and quick payback through cost savings. Insulation is a low-risk investment because the savings and the payback can be forecasted with a high degree of accuracy.
4.) Reduces Pollutant Emissions: Insulation reduces energy consumption, which means that less fossil fuel is burned to produce that energy. This, in turn, decreases the amount of polluting gases such as carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide emitted into the atmosphere.
5.) Noise Control: This is one benefit that’s tough to put a price on, but we all know it happens. Noise can seriously impact a worker’s health and productivity—so much so that OSHA does in fact have noise standards in place.
