Insulation and air sealing are the most important important steps you can take to improve your comfort and your home’s overall energy efficiency. Without proper insulation, your home needs larger, more expensive heating and cooling devices to keep you comfortable and those devices need to work harder, consuming more electricity, gas, or oil and costing you money.
High heating bills, drafty rooms and ice dams could be a sign that your home needs insulation. if you have icicles, ice dams, rapidly melting snow in certain roof hot spots, high heating or cooling bills or a generally drafty wall, you likely need to check into adding some additional insulation. Adding insulation to your home is the most efficient way to reduce energy bills.
Ideally, insulation sits between the living area of your home and the outdoors, forming a barrier from outdoor temperature extremes. When these barriers are not in place, outside temperatures enter your living space, while heating and cooling exit.
