Ceiling Insulation – Keeping you warm during the cold winter!

It pays to insulate. Sufficient insulation , properly installed, is still one of the most cost-effective ways available to reduce energy consumption, control rising electricity costs and provide a comfortable living environment all year long. It is a simple installation procedure.

The purpose of insulation is basically twofold; it must KEEP THE HEAT INSIDE throughout the winter and KEEP THE HEAT OUT during our sweltering summers. Install the right product today and it will keep working well into the next century.

An efficient insulation system is essential to maintain a comfortable and healthy environment in the building and also to maintain the efficiency of the heating / cooling system. The choice of good insulation material is very important and should be done carefully. It is not an expense but an investment considering it daily pays you back with important energy savings. Once you have made a choice, it is difficult to come back later to improve your insulation without costly expenses.

It is very important to consider that you have to keep the insulation system in very good condition. A failing system without the proper elements installed at the right place could increase the risk of having moisture or water in it. Some insulation products absorbing moisture can easily loose up to 50% of its thermal efficiency.

Benefits of insulating your home

  1. Increased home comfort
    Insulation works to reduce heat loss or gain by providing a barrier between areas that are significantly different in temperature.
  2. Soundproofing
    When properly installed, insulation can effectively reduce the amount of noise that travels into and throughout your home, keeping it more peaceful and quiet. Insulation, particularly cellulose, acts as an excellent sound absorber.
  3. Energy Saving
    Because insulation keeps your home warmer in the winter (preventing heat from escaping) and cooler in the summer (preventing heat from leaking in), you should see a significant decrease in your energy bills. Your heating and air conditioning units won’t have to work as hard to maintain an even temperature throughout your home. Insulation has been proven to reduce home energy heating and cooling bills by over 40 percent—that’s a huge difference!
  4. Eco-Friendly
    When there is less need for heating and cooling in your home, non-renewable resources are saved, and greenhouse gas emissions are reduced. You can save and go green when you install insulation in your home.
  5. Moisture Control
    When paired with proper air sealing techniques, insulation can help control water in your home, even in the spaces where moisture most commonly gathers, such as attics or basements. Maintaining efficient moisture control contributes in part to your home’s overall comfort and energy efficiency.
