Why Insulate?

How would you like to lower the indoor temperature on a 105 degree day AND lower your electric bill at the same time?

Since a majority of us spend more time in our home than any other building (with the exception of the work place), we want the temperature to be as COMFORTABLE as possible, but also AFFORDABLE to maintain.  For the same reason people wear clothing as protection from the elements, houses need insulation to protect them from exterior elements, too.   If the temperature outside is 100 degrees and you cool the inside air to 75 degrees, the proper amount of attic insulation will not only help keep the hot air outside and the cool air inside, but ALSO keep your air conditioning bill to a minimum. 

A majority of homes DO NOT have enough insulation, or the insulation is not working as well as it should.  An evaluation and possible upgrade will pay off every year and every season that you live in your home.

 

 

Benefits of adding additional insulation:

·         Keeps your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter

·         Repairs “problem areas” in a home.  For example, one room or side of a house may be much warmer or cooler than the rest of the house.

·         Reduces energy consumption

·         Increases the lifespan of the air conditioner or furnace

·         Acts as a sound absorber -

·         Will assist in obtaining a desired temperature in extreme elements, even if your cooling or heating system is not designed to obtain that temperature.
