As the summer season approaches, many would be tempted to think that having a home properly insulated is exclusively a winter concern. In reality, this could not be further from the truth. Proper insulation is a key to having both an efficient heating and cooling system. If your home is not properly insulated, your HVAC system works harder and uses energy less efficiently.
To help use insulation to improve your home’s energy efficiency, we recommend contacting your local HVAC professional for an appraisal of your current insulation levels.
When it comes to making these decisions, timing is of the essence. The longer you wait to remedy the situation, the more money you could be spending on higher utility bills. A good HVAC contractor can help to identify and seal or insulate areas where unwanted air exchanges could be causing inefficiency.
These tips are important for all homes, but especially for older homes that may have additional challenges in sealing and insulating properly. Having a home energy audit can help improve efficiency and decrease your energy usage, saving money and helping to save the environment.
For more information on how to properly insulate your home, or to schedule a visit from one of our energy audit technicians, contact our offices in San Jose, CA today. We look forward to hearing from you.
