Save Money on Energy Bills in 2017

A poorly insulated home can cause a number of issues for homeowners, including high energy bills and uncomfortable temperatures inside. If you've noticed a large chunk of your wages going to heat or cool your home, it's time to consider making some changes to your home.

What is Insulation?

Insulation is a material placed in your attic and walls to regulate the temperature. Whether your home is several decades old or brand new, it's possible that your home is poorly insulated. Insulation is available in multiple types of material, including cellulose and fiberglass. Each type of insulation is rated by its resistance to the transfer of heat.

Where Does Insulation Go?

Many homeowners add insulation to their home in the attic to improve energy efficiencies and also help with management of pests. Attics are easy to access to install extra insulation without requiring drilling and removing surfaces. The insulation will be blown into the attic and we will handle all clean up.

The Many Benefits of Insulation

Some insulation conducts heat poorly; placing insulation within the walls of your home forms a barrier between the outside air and the inside of your home, preventing heat from escaping in the winter or entering in the summer. This helps your heating or cooling system work more efficiently, reducing the amount of money you spend on your energy bills. Insulation has extra benefits as well, including blocking out noises from outside of your home. This also helps keep the sounds in your home confined, increasing privacy for your family.

If you have an issue with pests, the right type of insulation may help you address the problem. Some insulation is made of cellulose fibers covered in a pesticide. If a pest invades your home and attempts to eat the insulation, the pest will eventually die from the pesticide. Insulation can also help prevent a buildup of moisture in your home, making it a less likely target for a pest infestation.
