Insulation generally refers to any material used to insulate your home for thermal purposes. It is an important factor in achieving comfort for occupants of the home, reduces unwanted heat loss or gain and can decrease overall energy demands. The effectiveness of insulation is commonly evaluated by its R-value, which when combined with other variables, culminates in a proper, energy-efficient solution.

The Benefits of Quality Insulation

The type and amount of insulation required depends on your home's design, the climate you live in, energy costs, personal preferences and budget of the homeowner. Generally, the intent is to reduce heat flow out of a building during the winter, and to prevent the internal temperature from rising above the ambient climate during the summer. Among the greatest benefits of an effectively weatherized home are reduced energy costs, along with being better stewards of the environment. When the "thermal envelope" of a building is optimal, it requires less consumption of resources to keep the living space comfortable, whether by the use of heating or air conditioning.
