With the Ontario winter just around the corner, homeowners will be looking at ways they can keep their house warm while at the same time cutting costs and becoming more energy efficient. If this is the case for you, have you considered insulating your home?
Insulating your home can have significant benefits, while on the other hand a poorly insulated home will result in high energy bills, a cold house in the winter and an extremely hot house in the summer.
If you know that you have an insulation problem, perhaps your insulation is old and you have drafts coming into your house, then new insulation could help you save money, cut down your energy usage and make your home more comfortable.
Georgian Insulation has created a list of the top three benefits your household can realize from adding insulation to your home:
1 - Improve comfort
A poorly insulated home will result in inconsistent temperatures around your house, and as a result, either cold or warm air will seep into your house. This means specific rooms could be uncomfortably cold during winter and unbearably hot in the summer.
If you notice a change in temperature when you step into a new room, or you can feel a draft coming from a particular area of your house, this is a sure sign that your house has an insulation issue.
The proper insulation of your home will stop drafts and air leaks, as well as ensure that the temperature of your house is consistent and comfortable all year round.
2 - Reduce energy bills
Heating and air conditioning account for a significant portion of your energy consumption. If you have noticed a spike in your energy bill then this may well signal that your HVAC system is working much harder than it should be in an effort to make up for rooms with varying temperatures.
By insulating your home you will be able to better regulate its temperature and, as a result, cut down your energy bills. With adequate insulation your HVAC system will not have to work as hard, warmth will be better kept in your home and energy bills will be far lower
3 - Reduce energy waste
With the world slowly becoming more conscious of the environment, it’s possible that you want your household to cut down on its carbon footprint. By sealing leaks and maintaining the temperature of your home through insulation, you will reduce how hard your furnace has to work.
Research suggests that through insulation you can reduce energy waste in your home by as much as 20%, not only reducing your carbon footprint but also helping you to cut costs.
