Insulating a House for Energy Efficiency

One of the leading causes of energy loss in homes is inadequate insulation.

When insulating a house for energy efficiency, adding attic insulation is an important step.

If you want to keep your heating and cooling costs from going through the roof, you've first got to stop the air inside your home from going through the roof. How?

Seal off the air leaks in your home and add insulation.

Insulation works best when air is not moving through or around it. Therefore, it is very important that air leaks be sealed to ensure that you get the full performance out of any insulation that is installed.

Insulation helps maintain a uniform temperature throughout your house, therefore making your home more energy efficient.

It helps keep your walls, ceilings, and floors warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. It also acts as a sound barrier, helping to keep noise levels down.

Insulation is rated in terms of thermal resistance, called R-value, which indicates the resistance to heat flow. The higher the R-value of the insulation, the greater the insulating effectiveness. The R-value of thermal insulation depends on the type of material, its thickness and density.

The choices you make about insulating your home deserve some careful attention. Unfortunately, most homeowners assume that all insulations perform the same and are content to let the price serve as the determining factor in making their decision.

The more you know about the different types of insulation and how they work, the better informed you will be to make your decisions.
