The Ins and Outs of Insulation Installation
You may be wondering why you should even consider replacing your installation. Once you have it installed upon purchasing your home, for instance, isn’t that it? Actually, no. Do you know that the quality of your insulation can wear down over time? Our team has inspected both homes and businesses with older insulation and has discovered “bald spots” where the insulation runs thins, allowing heat and cold air to pass through.
Plus, nowadays literally everything is being updated to be more energy-efficient, and insulation is no exception. You should definitely consider replacing your insulation if it is over 15 years old. In some cases, especially when a home is built with lower-quality insulation, you may need to actually replace it sooner than that.
No Insulation at All?
Some folks are surprised to learn that the home they live in, or the office space they rent out, has no insulation whatsoever, or, at the very least, the bare minimum.
There is a legitimate reason for this. In Nevada, installers once believed that insulation should only be used in “colder” climates, so they didn’t consider this to be much of an issue in Nevada. However, we know now that insulation is just as helpful for reducing air conditioning costs as it is for costs associated with heating.
Sure, the attic and crawlspace of your home or business may be insulated, but did you know you may not actually have insulation in your exterior walls? Some buildings do not, which creates a significant impact on your heating and cooling costs. This is because the air can escape from the sides of your walls just as easily as it can leak into and out of your attic or crawlspace.
On the same token, you also rely on your insulation to block the heat or cold air from getting into your home. This causes your HVAC system to work even harder to keep up, which can cause it to prematurely die before its expected lifespan is up.
High Energy Bills
Higher energy bills are another good reason to consider an insulation installation. As the price of energy goes up over time, you end up spending more money every year for the same amount of air conditioning and heating – especially if you have no insulation or insulation that is dropping in quality.
Weak spots are another good reason to consider upgrading your installation. It’s time to finally take care of that drafty window once and for all, or that side door that allows all the cold air to gush in every time it’s windy outside. Did you know that air can get in (or out) anywhere a pipe or wire enters the building?
Plus, as mentioned earlier, your insulation may be so old that it’s creating those “bald spots” that are essentially additional weak spots. Stop living with the drafty cold and contact Ambient Edge for an insulation upgrade!
