Home insulation is one of the most important parts of your house, keeping it warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Home insulation can also save you an estimated 30 to 50% on your energy bills! In this economy, that’s a pretty significant decrease. With home and attic insulation, you can prevent this. Heat is always drawn to a colder area. Blown-in insulation can stop this process, and save you money in the process. By pumping your house with insulation, you’re making an investment that can pay off in a matter of months. We use major brands like CertainTeed, Owens Corning and GreenFiber (which is made up of 85% recycled paper fiber) in our insulation projects. It’s worth noting, if you are planning to insulate your attic, that you are going to want it professionally inspected for any damage, so it may be worth looking into some austin roofing companies. If there is any damage, such as cracks or holes, to your roof, then it could cause damage to the insulation later on.
Lower energy bills
Below, you can see how a home loses energy Before and After insulation and air sealing:
An older home without insulation in the sidewalls and attic can easily be insulated with blown-in cellulose or fiberglass. Most of the time, holes for the insulation can be drilled from the outside without disrupting your interior walls. If we need to drill from the inside, all furniture and fixtures will be covered with tarps, and your house will be cleaner than when we began! You won’t even notice the wall was drilled.
How Insulation Works
Heat flows naturally from a warmer to a cooler space. In winter, the heat moves directly from all heated living spaces to the outdoors and to adjacent unheated attics, garages, and basements – wherever there is a difference in temperature. This is also why it is so important to have suitable windows like tilt and turn windows because the insulation will definitely save you a lot of money in the long run when it comes to energy bills! During the summer, heat moves from outdoors to the house interior. To maintain comfort, the heat lost in winter must be replaced by your heating system and the heat gained in summer must be removed by your air conditioner. Insulating ceilings, walls, and floors decreases the heating or cooling needed by providing an effective resistance to the flow of heat.
