Air flows from warmer areas of the attic and crawl space, to cooler ones. Insulation is a mechanism that restricts heat flow and keeps the warm air where it belongs. Thus, with insulation in place, warm air will not enter the cooler indoors in summers. Likewise in winters, when the temperatures dip drastically outside, insulation prevents loss of conditioned air by trapping the warm air inside.
For that reason, and with energy and electricity costs escalating each day, having a proper insulation system in place is of paramount importance. Here is an extensive list of advantages that a proper insulation can bestow upon your property and dwellers.
- Comfortable Interiors – Be it blistering summers or chilling winters, a proper insulation system makes your interiors comfortable. While insulation repels hot air in summers and prevents it from entering your home, it traps the warm air inside in winters, improving overall comfort levels.
- Lower Energy Bills – The higher the heat flow resistance the lower the energy bills. Proper insulation and an effective HVAC system complement each other. While HVAC system conditions the air, a proper insulation system prevents its loss to the atmosphere.
- Cuts Down on Noise Pollution – Besides acting as a thermal barrier, insulation also has an inbuilt quality of absorbing sounds. Thus with proper insulation in place, there is a reduced penetration of ambient sounds, making the interiors comfortable and noise proof.
- Improves Air Quality – Proper insulation cuts down on dampness which supports growth and breeding of mold, mildew and fungus; organisms which spread through air and cause respiratory allergies.
