Insulation is easy to overlook, but it is a vital part of saving energy. If done correctly, there is a possibility that you could lower your energy bills by as much as 20 percent. It’s very important, however, that you have a professional with Metro Express Service help make sure you not only have the right type of insulation in your home, but also the right amount.
What’s So Important About Insulation, Anyway?
Insulation reduces the amount of heat exchange that takes place through an attic, a wall, your ducts and your roof. When a home is well-insulated, warm air can’t escape as easily during the winter, and less cool air is wasted during the summer. As a result, your heating and cooling system won’t have to work as hard to keep you comfortable. Not only will it last longer due to less wear and tear, you’ll have more money in your bank account as well because you won’t be wasting it on energy bills.
Here are some of the key considerations to take into account when insulating your home.
- Check your attic – It is especially important to make sure that your roof is properly insulated. Heat rises, of course, so the better insulated your attic, the less air will escape.
- Seal those leaks – Air will try and leak out of your home however it possibly can. Not only do you need to make sure your home is properly insulated, you also need to have an Arlington professional weather-strip and caulk any areas where you’re experiencing drafts.
- Don’t forget the ducts – Leaking ducts can really damage efficiency. Make sure you call a professional to properly insulate and seal your ductwork to make sure the air in your home gets to where it needs to go.
