Insulation is Critical!A well insulated home is a critical part of overall home energy efficiency. It serves to restrict natural elements, and maintain interior levels of comfort. Additionally, insulation greatly reduces moisture; preventing molds, dust, pollen, and related air-born illnesses. Over half of home energy loss is through exterior windows, walls, floors, and roof.
1. Attic InsulationA well insulated home is a critical part of overall home energy efficiency. This starts with the attic. Adequate attic insulation is certain to be a major target in terms of energy-saving improvements. Here's why: In a typical house, almost 50% of total energy use is attributable to heating and cooling, and the attic has a HUGE impact on heating and cooling efficiency. Over half of a homes energy loss is through the attic, walls, and floors.
2. Wall InsulationIncrease the heat resistance of your home and improve resistance to sound pollution with just one procedure. Wall insulation protects you from outside noise and temperature and can increase the effectiveness of your HVAC system by keeping conditioned air in and unconditioned air outside where it belongs.

Invest in duct insulation, and relax in the knowledge that your HVAC-conditioned air is spreading through your home unaffected by outside heat or cold. You spend enough money on your HVAC bills already, why gamble on the result?
Will Upgrading Insulation Save Money?Proper insulation and sealing air leaks can reduce energy loss. Most importantly, appliances such as a furnace, boiler, fan or air conditioner won't have to work as hard. Premium insulation can lower your home energy use up to 40%!
