We know that a lot of homeowners are unhappy with the amount of money that they pay to heat and/or cool their homes. Too often, though, people just accept this as the way things are, particularly when their HVAC systems seem to be working just fine. One common cause of low efficiency in both summer and winter, though, has little to do with these systems themselves, and more to do with the system that is your home.

Preventing Heat Transfer
Well, summer is almost over, so I don’t have to worry about insulation this year. Wrong. Some people seem to think that insulation just serves to keep heat out of your home when you’re running the AC. In truth, though, your insulation keeps heat in your home when you’re running the heater as well. It is incredibly important all year long, and a lack of sufficient insulation of the appropriate R-value, anywhere in your home will have detrimental effects.
One of the most obvious effects is high heating and cooling costs. If you are used to these, though, keep in mind that you’re not only overpaying to heat and cool your home, but that you are doing so to maintain less comfort than you ought to enjoy. If you have sub-par insulation, you are likely to wind up with hot or cold spots around your living space. You may also find your indoor air quality slipping, as pollutants have fewer barriers in their way.
From blown-in and spray foam insulation for tight existing spaces to batts and foam board insulation for new areas, there is an insulation product for every job. House Call Company will determine precisely what you need.
