One of the largest bills homeowners pay, and one of the easiest to chop down, is your utility bill. Both homes and businesses in the North Las Vegas area pay high-energy costs every month due to the desert climate, which requires both air conditioners and furnaces to do some heavy lifting in their respective seasons.
The problem comes when your home or business has inadequate insulation because then you’re paying to heat or cool the outdoors, rather than your office or living space.
This is where Ambient Edge comes in. As a top-rated, local insulation installation company, we have decades of experience installing high-quality insulation in homes and businesses in the North Las Vegas area. If you’re interested in saving money on your energy bills, give our team at Ambient Edge a call at (888) 240-8283, or send us a message via the contact form on our website.
Why You Should Consider Insulation Installation
You may be thinking, why do I need to consider insulation installation? I already have insulation in my home or business. However, did you know that insulation wears thin over time? If your insulation installation is more recent, then you probably don’t have to worry, but older insulation can create “bald spots” where the heat and cold air can get out.
Not only that, but your older insulation may not be energy-efficient. There’s no excuse not to upgrade to energy-efficient insulation, considering the price of energy-efficient products has gone down in recent years. You should actually consider replacing your insulation every 10 years or so.
Here are some additional reasons why you should consider upgrading your insulation.
Too Little Insulation – Or None at All
Many Las Vegas homeowners are surprised to discover they bought a house that contains either no insulation at all or the bare minimum. This is because installers used to believe the insulation was only meant for “cold” climates, and so they’d skimp out on insulation for homes in the North Las Vegas area. Now we know that insulation cuts down on air conditioning costs just as much as it does for heating costs.
No Insulation in the Walls
While the uppermost part of your home or business may be insulated, you may actually be surprised to learn that many buildings do not have insulation in their exterior walls. This is a drain on your heating and air conditioning costs because the air can leak out of the sides of the walls just as easily as it can escape from your roof.
Similarly, insulation can help block hot or cold air from getting in, which results in your HVAC system not having to work as hard and possibly even expiring before its time should be up.
High Energy Bills
As we all know, the price of energy only goes up over time, not down. This means you’ll be spending, even more, each month to heat or cool your home if you have either no or inadequate insulation. You may find the price difference in your energy bill to be jaw-dropping after installing upgraded insulation.
Do you know where all of the weak spots are in your home? You may know about that one drafty window or that door that won’t close all the way, but did you know that air can escape anywhere a pipe, wire, or utility enters your home or office? You may also have gaps you don’t know about in your windows and doors that require caulking.
You may also have those attic “bald spots” mentioned earlier, where the insulation wears down and doesn’t do as good of a job holding back the hot or cold air from entering the building, or conversely letting your home or office cool down or heat up sufficiently.
