Increase your home comfort year-round with high-performance insulation.
At the end of the day, there’s nothing more important than being able to come home to a comfortable living space. California summers can be overwhelmingly hot, and no one wants to be chilly on a cold winter’s night in their own home. In both scenarios, indoor comfort levels can often come down to whether or not your home is properly insulated.
Insulate Your Home for Energy Efficiency
Home comfort is important, but so is energy efficiency. If your heating and cooling systems are working harder than they should be, a number of issues can result, including the following:
- Shorter system life
- Increased energy bills
- Poor home comfort levels
We use different insulation types for different spaces, including:
- Blown fiberglass
- Spray foam (when appropriate)
Stay Cozy During the Colder Months
A properly insulated home gives a significant boost to your heating systems. Whether you use a furnace or mini-split, high-performance insulation adds a layer of security to your home's perimeter (also called the "building envelope"). The heated air in your home is much less likely to escape, creating a more comfortable, cozier environment for you and your family throughout the winter months. Your heating unit doesn't have to work overtime to heat your home, meaning you can expect to save on heating bills as well.
Keep Cool, Conditioned Air Inside
When you turn on your AC on a hot summer day, you’re creating conditioned air that is meant to stay inside your home, promoting comfort at stable, reliable temperatures. If insulation is lacking, however, conditioned air can escape. Hot, outside air makes its way into the home. This means your air conditioning system has to work much harder than it should to keep your home cool. High-performance insulation (in conjunction with air sealing) helps to ensure that this is never a problem.
Replace Your Old Insulation
Many California homes are insulated, yet not to the extent they need to be. In many cases, the best course of action may be to replace your old insulation with new, high-performance materials. Modern cellulose and fiberglass insulation are perfect for keeping your home as cool as possible in the summer and comfortably warm in the winter. Insulation can be installed in walls, attics, crawlspaces and basements to ensure that conditioned air never escapes or filters out of your living space.
