If your home feels drafty during the winter months and humid & warm in the summer months, the chances are that your home isn’t insulated correctly. Insulation makes your home more comfortable; it acts like a blanket wrapped around your home. It helps create a barrier to reduce the amount of air that is allowed to flow in and out of your home. Proper insulation can do so much to help regulate and stabilize the temperature in your living space.
Protect Your Investment
When your roof isn’t properly insulated, it can lead to ice dams forming on your roof. Ice dams form when heat from your home escapes to your roof, where it melts snow and ice near the apex of your roof, where it then runs down and refreezes near your gutters. The dams prevent water from draining from your roof, backing up onto your roof’s shingles, and eventually into your attic.
Your energy bills can actually be lowered with proper insulation. As we mentioned, poor insulation can allow warm air to escape your home during winter months, leading to cranking up the heat, and the same happens with air conditioning in the summer. Heating and cooling systems won’t have to work overtime to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home.
Good insulation is good for the environment. Reducing the amount of energy that you use makes insulation eco-conscious. Lowering the amount of gas and electricity we use is good for everyone.
