Here in Wyoming, the weather can swing from very cold to exceptionally warm. You may be under the impression that insulating your home is only useful during the colder months, but proper insulation can provide protection all year ‘round, regardless of weather. It’s incredibly important in regulating your home’s temperature; more than you may think.
Insulation can help your home maintain its temperature by blocking the flow of outdoor air into the interior of your home. Homeowners typically only consider this function during the winter, when cold air is seeking its way into your home through any portal it can find. However, proper insulation also helps retain the refrigerated air from your cooling system during warmer months. Think of it as a kind of shield that makes the exchange of indoor and outdoor air far more difficult than it might otherwise be. Just as it’s more difficult for air to pass through thicker fabrics than thinner ones, so is appropriately-applied insulation far more restrictive to airflow than poorly- or scantily-applied insulation.
The Benefits of Proper Insulation
A home that’s insulated well can save a substantial amount in heating and cooling costs. Because your home retains its internal temperature more readily, your heating and cooling systems won’t have to work as hard. This means that you’ll likely save on energy usage and repairs, while also possibly extending the lifespan of your HVAC components. Not only that, having the proper amount of insulation can also reduce the intrusion of outside noises into the interior of your home.
Insulating for All Seasons
Insulating your home properly means doing more than just adding layers on top of existing materials. An experienced installer will be able to help you decide how much is the right amount for your home, as well as whether the existing insulation can be augmented or should be replaced. Different types of insulation may be more effective for some applications than for others, too. These decisions are best made jointly between you and a respected, local service provider.
