Insulation works as a thermal barrier. It keeps heat inside your home in winter and keeps heat from entering your home in the summer. Building insulation helps keep your home warm during winter and cool during summer.
Insulation is very effective in reducing your energy costs and can pay for itself in energy savings. The amount of energy proper building insulation can save in a short time outweighs the cost of the product.
During hot summer months, the sun beats down on your home and your attic temperature can reach high temperatures. Adding professional attic insulation creates a thermal barrier between conditioned inside air and hot outside air, helping to prevent hot outside air from entering your home. The same can be said for wall insulation and for basement or crawl space insulation. Each application prevents heat transfer and keeps your home’s interior comfortable.
The same concept applies during winter months. The thermal blanket that insulation provides keeps heated inside air from escaping the home. This means your furnace can run less which helps reduce energy bills. Combine insulation with air sealing and the benefits are even greater.
