Insulation…Keeping the Good Air In and the Bad Air Out
Does your home feel drafty and have cold pockets during the winter months? Does your air conditioner run almost continuously in summertime heat while trying to cool your home?
If you answered yes to either of these questions, chances are pretty good that you need additional insulation in your home.
While there are different types of insulation including acoustic, fire and impact, thermal insulation is what helps you maximize your heating and cooling efforts.
In short, insulation reduces unwanted heat loss or gain and can ultimately decrease energy demands associated with running your furnace and air conditioner.
Typically, there are many different types of insulation materials used to slow heat loss including cellulose, glass wool, rock wool, polystyrene, urethane foam, vermiculite, perlite, wood fibre, plant straw, animal fibre, cement and early or soil.
