Home Insulation Guide: Year Round Benefits of Insulation

Monday, October 1st, 2012 at 8:00 am

You probably know that insulation is an important part of your Melbourne home’s comfort control system and needs to be properly installed and well maintained not just for the winter and summer but for the entire year to ensure high efficiency from your HVAC system. Here are a few things to consider about insulation and why it is so beneficial at various times throughout the year.

 Increased Heating and Cooling Efficiency

The obvious benefit of having good insulation in your home is that the heating and cooling systems you have will run more efficiently. The higher the R-value of your insulation, the more efficiently it traps and retains heating and cooling in your home to avoid energy loss. It also keeps things like cold air from getting inside.

Reduced Need for HVAC in Spring and Fall

Because good insulation will reduce energy loss, it makes it possible to use your HVAC systems much less in the moderate temperatures of both spring and fall. This is a good thing for those that are comfortable with slightly higher or lower temperatures to save some money on your bills.

 Air Quality Improvement with Proper Supplementation

Good insulation can also improve your air quality by keeping out contaminants from outside. Of course, it needs to be paired with other air quality improving elements like a filtration system.

Good insulation is a must for every modern home. If your home’s current insulation is not sufficient or if you are concerned that it will not be sufficient for long, especially in extreme weather conditions such as those you might face, is never too early to have it inspected or replaced – call Next Generation Air & Heat today!
