Do I Need New Insulation In My Home?

 

Most homeowners don’t understand how important the insulation in their home is to maintaining their comfort and the overall efficiency of their house. Your insulation is designed to resist heat transfer through it, which is critical to you keeping as much of the heat out of your home as possible. Here at Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning, we offer a full range of Phoenix, AZ insulation services and we wanted to share some of the reasons why your home’s insulation is so important.

Why Insulation Is So Important

Typically, you don’t keep your home’s interior temperature at the same temperature as the outside air. In the summer, you keep your home much cooler than the outdoors and in winter you keep your home warmer. Because this temperature difference exists, heat will naturally try to leech between your home and the outside and your insulation is the only thing stopping that from happening.

If your home’s insulation is thin, rotting or if there are holes in it: these things can allow heat to move freely into or out of your home. This is of the upmost importance in your home’s attic. You see, your home is sometimes referred to as an “envelope” that is sealed off. Your walls, ceilings, windows and doors comprise the edge of the envelop. Your attic, however, is not part of this envelope and it also gets the most exposure to the elements. During the summer your attic will get very hot and in the winter it will get very cold. Having great insulation in your attic floor is a great way to reduce the amount of heat that can leech through into your home.

Here at Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning, our insulation experts offer a full range of services. We can visit your home for an insulation inspection and then recommend a course of action if we find that your insulation isn’t up to standard. Give us a call today to learn more and to talk with one of our friendly specialists.
