Basically, insulation is a material used that reduces heat loss or heat gain by providing a barrier between the inside of your home and the significantly different temperature outside.
How Home Insulation Works
When you heat and cool your home, the insulation should work to keep the temperature inside consistent without the central heating or air conditioner running constantly.
It’s important when talking about insulation to understand how it will impact the conduction – heat transfer – and the convection – airflow – which will play a significant role in your home’s energy efficiency and comfort.
Airflow into or out of your home is the movement of air through gaps and holes in walls, the attic, crawl space, rim joists, doors, windows, and electrical outlets. This air leakage is a major problem in many homes, contributing to energy loss and discomfort.
Appropriate home insulation will help lower your energy bills while keeping your home a comfortable place to live and enjoy all year-round.
