Did you know that you could have the best heating and air system in the world but if your home is not properly insulated, this great system is not doing much for you. The value of high quality and properly installed insulation is greater than most people realize.
Residential insulation is not an option anymore, but rather a necessity. Electricity and energy costs in general are on the rise everywhere, especially here in Southeast Texas! Without proper insulation, your bills can become unaffordable.
If you are in an older home, your home may not even have insulation so you should definitely consider getting it installed throughout your home. Or maybe your home does have insulation but it is old, installed poorly or not working efficiently as it should?
Once your home is properly insulated, your heating and cooling system will be protected from working so hard to replace conditioned air that keeps escaping outside. Reducing the wear and tear on your unit means more money in your pocket. When your air conditioning system is working 24/7 to heat or cool, not only are you never truly comfortable but you are paying such an enormous and unnecessary amount of money that you could otherwise be using to properly insulate your home.
In short, below are reasons you should make sure your home is properly insulated:
- To reduce energy costs
- To make the inside temperature more comfortable
- To help the system run less and last longer
- To reduce noise transfer between rooms
- To improve humidity control
It is vital to make certain your home has the correct amount and type of insulation for the geographic location where you live. The hot and humid Houston climate does require for our homes to be well-insulated.
Are you having a hard time keeping your home or office cool? Are your energy bills too high? Do you suspect you may be lacking on the proper amount of insulation?
