Properly insulating your home is not only a great way to live toward a greener ideal, but to also save yourself some money on energy bills. This is because as the seasons change from extreme hot to extreme cold, a significant amount of energy can be transferred through the exterior walls, instead of staying in your home to keep you cool or warm. That’s why as part of our roof repair and inspection services here at Moss Roofing, we also make sure to examine the attic and other areas of the home for proper insulation.
How Insulation Saves Energy
Heat energy constantly moves from a warmer to a cooler area, i.e. escaping from your home’s warm interior to the cold outside. Insulation in your walls can significantly reduce this heat flow by providing a higher heat flow resistance (also referred to as an R-value). Simply put, this R-value is a measure of how well an object can resist conductive heat flow. The higher the R-value, the better, since it means less air is being lost to the outdoors and leads to lower energy consumption and bills.
Home Improvement Projects For Better Insulation
Since most of these insulation takes place on your walls, it is only natural that projects like siding repair or replacement are among the top insulation boosters. If your home’s siding has seen better days, then now may be the right time to get a new one or at the very least, fix the affected panels.
Another area to focus on is your attic. As heat rises, one of the primary escape routes is through your roof via the attic. The traditional insulation methods for an attic are hardly adequate to resist this heat flow, which is why we offer our attic insulation services. We work with leading brands to provide you with top-of-the-line materials and first-rate services that your home needs for better energy savings.
