Insulating your house helps to maintain a comfortable living environment by maintaining inside temperatures and reducing energy costs. The main purpose of insulation is to create a barrier around the building, that is, over the roof, on the wall, and beneath the floor, which reduces the amount of heat entering the home on a warm day, and reducing the amount of heat loss on a cold day.
Why do we need to insulate our buildings?
Although here in Ireland our climate is usually fairly mild, the wind and dampness causes a high level of heat loss from our buildings. A glance at the diagram below shows how much of the heat we pump into the buildings is lost.
An uninsulated building is an enormous drain of heat, and the heating bills paid on it are essentially money down the drain.
Insulation is something which any owner of a residential or commercial building cannot afford to ignore. Whether your motivations are saving the planet, or simply saving your pocket, there are many important benefits.
Benefits of Insulation your home
There are many benefits of home insulation. Insulating your home will add to your comfort, create a healthier home environment, reduce your energy bills and have a positive environmental impact.
Adding insulation to your home is a great way to increase the comfort of your living environment. Adding home insulation to an existing home will regulate the temperature, making your living environment more enjoyable, especially in places of extreme weather.
Adding home insulation to an existing home will also increase sound control. Insulation creates a sound barrier, keeping unwanted sounds out and protecting your privacy by keeping the sounds from inside your home from being audible outside. Insulating your home also creates a moisture barrier, keeping unwanted moisture out of your house.
This will protect all of your possessions indoors and create a much more comfortable living environment inside. Another benefit of home insulation is keeping environmental pollutants and allergens out of your home. Home insulation creates an added barrier between you and the outside world, keeping your home environment regulated, healthy and comfortable.
Insulating your home also has cost benefits to you as homeowner. With added insulation your home will become much more energy efficient. Insulation will keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. This will reduce the amount of heating and cooling appliances you need to use to keep your home comfortable. Because of this, home insulation will reduce your energy bills and the costs of cooling and heating your home.
Environmental benefits of home insulation
Another benefit of insulating your home is a reduced environmental impact. With an insulated home you will be using less energy for heating and cooling your home. This will reduce your carbon footprint, and also reduce the amount of chemicals released into the environment from air conditioning units.
