Insulation works best in your attic (where heat rises) and in your walls. Most homes in the area have comparatively little insulation owing to our mild winters. But another layer could be just what you need not only to cut into those heating bills on our chilly nights, but next year when cooling season arrives. High temperatures don’t differentiate between inside the home and outside the home, which means a well-insulated home keeps hot air out in the summer as easily as it keeps warm air in in the winter. If your home doesn’t have enough insulation, you would do well to see about adding more.
If you own a forced-air furnace or air conditioner, you may be losing a great deal of energy due to unseen breaches in your ducts. By pulling conditioned air out of the system (or unconditioned air in), they force your heater and air conditioner to work harder than they should, adding strain and raising your monthly bills accordingly. A reliable duct sealing service can button up those leaks and help your system respond more efficiently.
