Does your home have enough insulation?
Many homeowners in the Decatur, IL area struggle to maintain a comfortable temperature in their homes, especially during the changes in seasons. The most likely culprit is not having enough insulation! Whether it’s bitterly cold outside or miserably hot, proper insulation keeps your home at a comfortable temperature all year round. Plus, it prevents your HVAC system from working overtime — which saves you money!
Taking stock of your home's insulation
Insulation helps keep warmth in and coldness out. Sufficient insulation is essential to your comfort in all seasons. Unfortunately, insulation material degrades over time, and in some older homes, it’s not properly installed or rated for the Decatur, IL area’s climate. Your home could be lacking this crucial protection! Here are some common signs of inadequate insulation:
- Inconsistent temperatures between rooms
- High energy bills
- Appearance of icicles or ice dams
Of course, the best way to determine whether your home needs new or more insulation is to get an energy audit. In this process, a professional team comes in to do a thorough assessment. You can rely on Assured Insulation to do a full diagnostic workup of your home.
How an Energy Audit Works
Spray foam insulation seals better than other types of insulation. It has a higher R-rating, or thermal resistance rating, than most other types. This quality insulation has an R-value thermal resistance of six per inch, which is substantially higher than most other types of insulation on the market today.
Spray foam is easy to install in places like your attic, basement, and crawl space. If you want to reduce your heating costs, you should insulate these areas in your home. It doesn’t take much to conserve heat in the whole house by spraying foam insulation in these hard-to-reach places. Even if space is tight, we can fit our sprayer in your basement, crawl space, or attic to make sure you’re not dumping money on unnecessary heating expenses.
Why Insulation Is Important
The role of insulation in your home is to prevent any transfer of heat through the materials that make up your walls, attic, crawlspace, and floors. This works both ways: keeping the heat from your furnace and heating equipment in the winter, and keeping the hot summer temperatures and humidity out in the warmer months.
Assured Insulation can detect and remove deteriorated or outdated insulation, then install the proper amount to ensure your home’s comfort and energy-efficiency. Now is the perfect time to have an audit and insulation treatment done to your home, so that you can be ready for seasonal change!
