Ever wondered what the purpose of insulation is? Below are the reasons why insulation is important in your home.
Insulation reduces your bills significantly and preserves the HVAC system.
Insulation acts as a barrier between outside and inside temperature which allows you to keep consistent comfortable temperature regardless of the weather outside. Which greatly affects electricity cost since your HVAC system doesn’t have to compensate for lack of insulation.
Insulation minimizes noise in your home.
Goof insulation has a lot of benefits, one of which is its ability to absorb sound. It absorbs sound vibrations that emanate from many appliances, foot steps, and people who live inside. Old HVAC systems are noisy, with a lack of proper home insulation it can get loud. Replacing your HVAC system would be a great way to reduce noise and create long term savings on heating and cooling costs.
Modular HVAC System as a solution to poor insulation.
Insulation reduces transfer of heat between living spaces as well as preventing it from escaping the living space. Old HVAC equipment will have a hard time trying to handle all the air being exchanged in the living space, modern systems are able to modulate their speed as well as predict the temperature and act proactively. This eventually lowers the amount of energy needed for your HVAC system to operate.
Dehumidifier as a way to compensate for lack of insulation to fight moisture.
Indoor home activities such as cooking, showering and washing clothes can create moisture within your home. This moisture creates a perfect environment for mold growth. Good insulation usually handles this well. Dehumidifiers are a great solution to compensate for lack of insulation as well as save on costs to replace that insulation. You have a constant ability to control its work thus making it a great and cost effective solution.
