Why Should I Insulate?

It's no secret that energy prices are escalating and most often one the most effective ways to save money and energy is to improve the efficiency of your home. 

Heat likes to move from warmer to colder areas. On a cold winter day, heat from inside your home wants to travel to the cooler area outside, resulting in heat loss. On a warm summer day, the heat from outside the home tries to penetrate your homes walls to find the cooler air conditioned areas of your home. 

Insulation is the material found in your homes walls and other areas of your house to help stop air infiltration and heat transfer. When insulation is correctly installed with air sealing it will keep your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It will also help save moneypreserve natural resources, reduce noise and in some cases make you eligible fortax credits.
