Signs of Poor Insulation

 

Insulation is an important part of any home, tasked with preventing the unwanted transfer of heat into or out of one’s living space. In the summer, this means that the insulation helps to keep the heat from the air outside out of your home. In the winter, it means preventing the heat that you want in your home from transferring outdoors. If you have subpar insulation in Phoenix, AZ, you are going to wind up encountering a number of different problems. Fortunately for you, we can solve them all. Dial our number, and schedule your insulation services with the pros at Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning.

High Heating and Cooling Costs

One of the strongest indicators that you have subpar insulation in your home is a spike in your heating and cooling costs. You are not going to be able to keep your home comfortable throughout the year for free, of course, though that would be nice. However, you also should not be seeing any inexplicable spikes in your heating and/or cooling costs. If your utility bills seem to be much higher than they’ve been in previous years, it could be due to excessive heat loss or gain stemming from poor insulation in your home.

Drafty Areas/Uneven Heating and Cooling

Your HVAC system should be capable of heating and cooling your home evenly, especially if it is installed and serviced by a qualified professional. If it used to do so, but now leaves hot or cold spots throughout your home, it may be the result of subpar or compromised insulation. Additionally, remember that, while some natural ventilation is necessary, you shouldn’t really be feeling strong drafts anywhere in your home. If you do, you may need an insulation upgrade.

Reduced Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality may not be the first thing that you’d associate with your insulation, but if you don’t have enough of it, or if it’s damaged, more pollutants may be able to make their way into your home. Dial our number if you suspect that your IAQ problems are insulation related. We’ll get to the bottom of the situation.
