How to Reduce Your Energy Bills With Better Insulation

April 2, 2019 | Blog

Energy costs can take a big bite out of your paycheck. Instead of shivering in the winter and sweating in the summer, you can reduce costs by improving your home insulation. Read below to find out how home and attic insulation can reduce your energy bills and improve your quality of living.

Sealing up Air Leaks

Insulation seals your home and prevents central air from leaking. This causes you to spend less on air conditioning and heating, as you do not have to replace as much escaping air. Heat flows from warmer areas to cooler areas. In the summer, warm air from the outside will flow into an improperly sealed home, and in the winter, warm air from the inside will flow outside. To prevent wasting expensive utilities, you will need to seal air leaks and leaking air ducts.

Heat Rises

Attics are one of the easiest places to improve insulation. Heat rises, so attic insulation is especially important for preventing heat escape. Luckily, adding insulation in the attic is quick and cost-effective. You can add insulation to either the floors or the roof, depending on whether you plan on having an unfurnished or furnished attic. You can progressively add insulation, so you can improve on the insulation layer over time. If your attic is well-insulated, you can also add attic fans to help keep your attic cool during the summer. Finally, you can add a reflective roof to your home, which will repel heat from the sun and cool down your attic.

By improving your home insulation, you can save 10% to 50% on your air conditioning and heating costs. With heating and cooling costs on the rise nationwide, insulation installation is a smart investment for your future. If you are interested in improving the efficiency of your home, contact Go Green AC and Heating.

Professional and Honest

After receiving a ridiculously high quote from the HVAC company sent out by our home warranty, my husband wanted a second opinion. Our technician Mike was thorough and honest about what needed repair. Not only was the diagnosis much simpler, so was the price. Mike got the repair done quickly and was very professional. We’ll definitely be calling Go Green again.
