Insulation & Air Sealing
Is Your Home’s Insulation Up to Par?
Insulation is something that many homeowners allow to fall to the back of their minds. Most people realize that a well-insulated home will be warmer and more comfortable during the cooler months of the year, but what about during the summer? Insulation matters no matter what time of the year it may be, and it’s one of the most effective tools for keeping conditioned air inside the house.
When was the last time you took a look at the insulation in your home? Now’s the time to have it evaluated by a home performance professional.
The Benefits of an Insulation Upgrade
Upgrading your home’s insulation is an important step towards improving energy efficiency. While older homes tend to come along with more insulation-related problems than those which have been more recently, poor construction methods can affect any home. This is why it’s important to have Snug Planet evaluate the insulation within your home.
The benefits of an insulation upgrade are numerous and include the following:
- Enhanced Energy Efficiency
- Improved Indoor Air Quality
- Lower Energy Bills
- Increased Home Comfort Levels
- Less Drafty
Insulation is an essential element of home performance, but it must be combined with proper air sealing techniques in order to operate at peak performance.
Why Air Sealing?
While it may not appear obvious at first glance, it’s likely that your home suffers from small cracks and gaps that can occur in various “problem areas” like attics, basements, windows and doors. Air sealing is one of the most effective home performance techniques for solving this issue, and it can be especially useful when combined with high performance insulation.
