So you’re following all of our heating and air conditioning tips for energy efficiency and still seeing that sky-high monthly energy bill? It may be time to dig into the root of the problem and check out your home insulation. Insulation issues could be the reason your environmentally-friendly home could still have a large carbon footprint.
There are several different types of insulation for your home, and improper installation could be the reason you’re walking into a stifling home in the summer and an icebox in the winter. Correctly installed insulation should increase the comfort levels of your home, lower your utility bills, and improve the resale value of your home.
Entering the world of insulation can be confusing to your typical homeowner. A good place to start is to learn about what differentiates one insulation from another. “R-value” is a variable used to denote the amount of thermal resistance a type of insulation has. The higher the number, the less heat loss. Normally, the R-value of the attic is higher than the rest of your home.
