How Proper Insulation Can Improve Your Indoor Comfort
Is your house not getting cool enough during the summer or losing too much heat during the winter? Most people attribute these things to a faulty HVAC unit, but you might be surprised to learn that one of the leading contributors to reduced energy efficiency is actually related to not having proper home insulation. If the insulation in your home isn’t adequate, the air you are spending money to heat or cool will escape (usually through the attic). You might as well be tossing money out the window! Most homeowners will save an average of about 20% on their monthly energy bills by installing proper insulation in their homes, making the cost of the insulation installation eventually pay for itself.
