With the cold weather in the air tapering off and the warmer months ahead of us, now is an excellent time to evaluate your Pioneer Valley home’s insulation. Since there is still a temperature differential between the indoor and outdoor air, leaky spots are still cause for concern. If you find yourself needing to run your HVAC systems overtime with no noticeable difference in comfort, or if your energy bills are skyrocketing, consider having our team take a closer look at your insulation.
The Problem of Insufficient Insulation
Most homes have insulation. Not all homes, however, have a sufficient amount of it. Insufficient or improperly installed insulation can be problematic in a number of ways:
Strained Heating & Cooling Units
It can put an unnecessary strain on your HVAC systems, meaning you have to extend your run-time in order to get your home to a desired temperature. This will also drastically reduce the lifespan of your HVAC systems.
High Energy Usage & Inflated Bills
Overtaxing your heating and cooling units doesn’t just waste energy and increase risk of breakdown, it also means energy bills are higher! With a leaky home that is money going right out of your window.
Areas of too little insulation are prey to air leaks. Conditioned air can escape in some areas of the home, creating an uncomfortable temperature imbalance. Not fun, especially in the frosty winter months and sizzling summer stretch.
