Improve the Energy Efficiency of Your Home with Insulation

January 21, 2014

Anyone who owns a home or commercial building wants to improve the energy efficiency of the structure to reduce energy costs and provide a comfortable interior environment.

 

With the extremely cold weather this winter, many older homes that are lightly insulated are having a big problem with energy consumption and cold drafty areas. Homes built prior to 2010 might use upwards of 25% more space heating energy than newer homes.  This is because of recent improvements in the building codes for insulation and air tightness levels.

 

In Canada over 60% of residential energy use goes to space heating, so a good portion of your energy bill is impacted by insulation problems or poor quality materials that aren't doing the job.

 

To reduce energy costs you can look at adding insulation and reducing air leaks. A well insulated home will reduce your energy heating costs in the winter and your cooling costs in the summer.

 

There are many good options on the market - each with different features and advantages. Determining where to upgrade and the type of material to use requires some technical understanding of your building and knowledge of materials.

 

We have the experience to help you make the right decision and start saving money on your heating bills. Georgian Insulation has been helping home owners and building owners for over 20 years in the Simcoe County region.  Give us a call and get the advice you need.

 

The Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation has information online providing some details about energy efficiency and home insulation. Read More..
