Insulation reduced the amount of heat that goes through a wall, duct, attic or roof. when a home is well insulated, less warm air gets out in the winter and less cool air escapes in the summer. Less air gets into the home as well and that reduces the amount of energy you use. When homeowners add insulation, they see lower utility bills on a regular basis. There are a few things you can do to insulate your home.
-Create an Outer Shell
When you hear insulation, you usually think about the barrier between your inner and outer walls. You can put insulation in your walls, attics, and floors to save your energy and allow your heating and cooling systems to ease off on the amount of work they have to do.
-Seal Air Leaks
Even walls that have good insulation can let air escape through the cracks in windows and doors. Drafty homes leak a lot of energy and air. Weather-stripping and caulking can help these issues and sometimes, replacing doors and windows is a good option as well.
-Install Insulating Ducts
Homes that have central heating and air force air through ducts and when those ducts leak, they lower the efficiency of the home. Ducts should be sealed and insulated to prevent that.
-Use Reflective Insulation
Most insulation reduced heat transfer but reflective barriers use the heat and can keep a house cool in the hot California climate.
