As the snow is falling and winter season doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon, many homeowners are turning up their thermostats. If this is you, you need to be looking at home insulation.
But did you know that a significant amount of your home’s warmth could be escaping through the walls, floors, and ceiling? This not only leads to a chilly home but can also result in high energy bills, causing your hard-earned money to slip through the cracks.
Especially with the cost of energy bills rising, and a further increase of 20% expected in April 2023, you really should be checking how much further you can insulate your home to combat heat loss.
Insulation helps to regulate the temperature inside your home by reducing heat transfer through walls, ceilings, and floors. By insulating your home, you can create a thermal barrier that keeps the warm air inside and the cold air out, ultimately saving you money on your energy bills.
But how exactly does insulation work? Insulation materials such as fibreglass, cellulose, or spray foam act as a barrier to slow down the transfer of heat. This means that during the colder months, insulation helps keep your home warm by trapping the heat inside. And during the summer months, it keeps your home cool by preventing hot air from entering.
When it comes to insulating your home, there are several options available. The most common areas for insulation are attics, walls, and floors. You can choose from a variety of materials, including fiberglass, cellulose, or spray foam insulation. Each type of insulation has its benefits, so it’s important to consider which option is best for your home and budget.
