If your heater seems to work harder than it should during the winter, your home may suffer from inadequate insulation. When your home isn't properly insulated, it's easier for outside temperatures to come inside. Your heater or air conditioner will have to work overtime to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, and your heating and cooling bills will soar.
If you suspect that your home isn't properly insulated, start your inspection in your attic or crawlspace; these areas are often the source of hot or cold air, and they're often neglected by home builders. With the extreme temperatures faced by Ohioans in the winter and the summer, it's important that all homes be well-insulated throughout their entire structure.
Why Insulate Your Home?
Insulation is obviously good for regulating the temperature inside of your home, but the benefits of insulation go beyond temperature control.
- A well-insulated home is cheaper to heat and cool; excellent insulation can cut these costs by as much as 20 percent.
- Good insulation can also deaden outdoor sounds and prevent your own sounds from bothering your neighbors.
- By cutting your electricity or fuel use, you can avoid adding to your carbon footprint.
- Well-insulated homes produce less condensation and aren't as likely to accumulate unseen moisture damage.
In addition, some insulation materials discourage pests from entering your home. At Accel Pest & Termite Control, we recommend the use of insulation made from paper and borate, which many pests find distasteful; insulating your home with these materials can prevent pest infestations.
