You probably already know the advantages to having a properly insulated home during the cold months here in Texas. Your insulation acts like a down jacket does on your torso, creating a comfortable barrier that keeps the warm air in and the cold air out.
Yes, insulation may be similar to a down jacket during the winter, when both you and your home need to keep the heat inside. But once the summer temperatures hit our homes here in Austin, did you know that proper insulation can actually help keep the heat out as well? Let’s take a look at the many benefits you can enjoy this summer in the Austin,TX area with proper insulation installation from Green Collar Operations.
Proper Insulation = Proper Comfort
The barrier that separates your home from the unruly outdoors and keeps you comfortable is called the “building envelope.” A proper building envelope is comprised of:
Making sure there are no leaks or cracks in your home for air to escape (or intrude)
Filling your walls and attic with material (like fiberglass insulation) to stop the transfer of heat
These two things work in tandem to stop the transfer of heat between the inside and outside of your home. This means you keep your expensive, conditioned air inside of your home instead of losing it through your walls or attic space.
Keep Your Wallet Comfortable
Having proper insulation doesn’t just keep you comfy in your home; it can have long term, lasting benefits for your wallet as well. As we said before, proper insulation keeps the conditioned air inside of your home, so when you set the thermostat you can rest easy knowing your home will stay that temperature. This saves you money each month on your energy bill, since you don’t have to rely on your air conditioning system to run as often in the summer heat. This reduced reliance on your air conditioning also significantly reduces the wear and tear your system incurs, in turn reducing the risk of a costly air conditioning breakdown. The full benefits of keeping your home properly insulated include:
Increased year round home comfort
Reduced energy costs with a more efficient home
Lowered risk of an expensive air conditioning breakdown
Increased soundproofing and fire resistance (with fiberglass insulation)
