Why is Insulation Important?
Heat naturally moving from warmer areas to cooler areas. This can be a major problem for your comfort if you do not have adequate insulation in your home. If there are weak spots in your insulation, running your air conditioner during the summer months can be a very costly endeavor. The substantial heat outdoors will do its best to infiltrate your home, naturally moving to a cooler area. During the winter months, poor insulation is just as serious a problem. When your heater warms your home, that heat can go right out through the cracks and gaps in your home’s envelope. This will drive up heating and cooling costs throughout the year.
There are other consequences to consider as well if you don’t have quality insulation. Consider what happens to your HVAC equipment if the air it is heating and cooling is just allowed to escape from your home. The system will have to work harder and harder in order to replace that lost heated or cooled air. Wasting energy like this not only drives up your heating and cooling costs, but it puts unnecessary strain on your HVAC equipment. This increases the risk of damage to your system, which in turn can lead to further compromises in your comfort.
How Insulation Works
The backbone of insulation is the concept of heat flow. Heat flow involves conduction, convection, and radiation. Conduction is the way that heat moves through a material, convection is the way that heat circulates through liquid and gas, and radiation is heat traveling in a straight line heating any solid in its path.
Insulation works to slow down all these processes. Heat flows from warmer to cooler until there’s no longer a temperature difference but this isn’t something that you want to happen in your home on a cold winter evening—you want the heat to stay where it is. Insulation works to keep your heat where you want it.
What’s Blown-in Insulation?
Blown-in insulation is comprised of loose-fill insulation. Loose-fill insulation consists of small particles of fiber, foam, and/or other materials. These small particles add up when they’re blown into a space because they can conform to any space without disturbing structures or finishes in your home. This ability to conform to the bulges and contours of your space is nothing to overlook—it’s incredibly important.
The most common types of materials used for this type of insulation are cellulose, fiberglass, mineral, and wool. The process of insulating your home this way is fast and convenient as long as you have a professional team.
