A great way to maintain a consistent level of comfort in your own home is by increasing insulation. House insulation provides a boundary around the interior of a property, plugging any gaps that may lead to an escape of hot air to the exterior of the property. It also prevents cold air moving the other way. If you want to gain a comfortable living situation, through normal body and building heat, insulation is the correct way to go about this.
There is also the massive bonus of reducing your utility bills. Think about it for a second, if you are losing heat and gaining cold air through gaps, within low quality insulation, you are going to turn up the indoor heating to make up for that problem. The first steps you should take to create an energy efficient home is to install proper insulation. Less energy is needed to heat up your property or to air condition it, depending on the time of year. Energy consumption will dramatically reduce as a direct consequence of better insulation.
"My home is no longer drafty and cold in the winter and in the summer it has stayed considerably cooler. But the best part of all is only after two years, I have almost totally recovered my investment through my savings on fuel bills. Insulating my home with foam by USA Insulation was without a doubt the best investment I've ever made in my home."
An insulated property will also feel incredibly comfortable in both summer and winter months. Temperature will always remain consistent throughout the entirety of your stay at the property. Insulation will provide you with the perfect base for which to live comfortably for the duration of your stay. Cool in summer and warm in winter.
"We live in a two bedroom condominium and when we moved here it was cold and breezy. We plan to live the rest of our lives in this unit and want to be comfortable... Now, our place is cozy and comfortable."
The potential resale value of your property may increase. An insulated home will look much more attractive to potential buyers of your home. They immediately know that utility bills will not be as high, plus it is another job on the checklist that has already been achieved. No need for extra cash to be spent insulating a new home.
A moral and ethical stand point can also be made with your contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. If every building was properly insulated there would be a huge reduction in the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere. A lower rate of energy consumption, leads to fewer greenhouse gas emissions, which is something we all need to think about for the future of our planet.
