Winter is a time when many people here on Long Island are looking for ways to stay warm and save money for holiday gifting. So, doesn’t it make sense that you would do something this season that helps you do both?
That’s where home insulation comes in. Home insulation can both increase indoor comfort and reduce annual heating costs, making it a great upgrade to consider for winter. Learn more about the many benefits of insulation and why it’s the upgrade to schedule this season.
How Can Insulation Help Me Stay Warm & Save Money?
When installed properly in key areas like the attic, basement, and exterior walls, insulation keeps valuable indoor heat inside your house. This allows you to run your heating system less often while keeping your home the same, warm indoor temperature. That means reduced energy use and, in turn, lower energy bills.
The benefits don’t stop there. You’ll experience a number of perks when you have an insulation specialist upgrade your insulation, including;
Greater overall indoor comfort
A warmer house in the winter
A cooler house in the summer
Less need to run HVAC equipment
Lower heating & cooling costs
Longer lasting HVAC equipment
Less moisture issues caused by condensation
Improved indoor air quality
Find Out Exactly Where Your House Needs Insulation
Now that you know a little about the importance of insulation, you’re probably wondering, “How do I know if my house needs insulation?” If you experience home comfort issues like fluctuating temperatures, indoor drafts, and cold floors, chances are it’s time to re-insulate.
To find out exactly where new insulation is needed, we recommend scheduling an energy audit. An energy audit is an in-depth assessment of your home’s energy efficiency using diagnostic testing. During the assessment, a home performance specialist will inspect your home’s building envelope (its walls, windows, and doors) and uncover areas where insulation is lacking or missing. Then, they’ll make customized recommendations as to where new insulation needs to be installed, and where air sealing may be necessary for air leaks.
