In general scientific terms, ‘insulation’ refers to effectively preventing the loss or transfer of heat, electricity, or sound from one conductor to another. In household terms, insulation means the ability of a material to restrict the loss of cool or warm air to outside in accordance with the weather. Moreover, insulation serves several other purposes, such as humidity and dampening air control. Is your house insulated? Here are some of the benefits of adequate insulation.
The foremost advantage you gain from excellent insulation in your house is the cost savings. Insulation helps prevent moisture or energy loss to the surroundings of the house. Hence, if you are trying to stay cool during summer, insulation will prevent the loss of cool air from the AC. Thus, you may not have to keep the HVAC system running, which means cost savings on electric bills.
Although there is a widespread misconception that insulating your house is costly, it is the opposite. In fact, most of the insulation processes are cost-effective and yield excellent results. Moreover, they are amazing pay-back options as well. Why? Because the energy savings, resulting in cost savings, is something to feel happy about.
Modern thermostats and insulations ensure temperature control. Hence, it means safety from accidental burns or colds in case of temperature fluctuations due to a sudden change in weather (rain, storms, etc.).
Moreover, a good insulation process ensures soundproofing. Hence, it reduces the interior noise by encasing or enclosing the sound-generating source. So, your neighbors won’t complain if you like to hear loud music. Also, it does not let external noise enter your home.
While there are numerous benefits of adequate insulation, let’s take a look at the added costs that poor insulation incurs.
In order to stay warm during winter, you might keep the HVAC (heating system) running. Poor insulation lets the cold air inside the house and fails to prevent warm air from escaping.
Therefore, you can’t keep your house temperature at a comfortable level. Not to mention, this immaculately adds to your electricity bills. Government reports also suggest using proper insulation to save on energy costs, as well as resources.
The frequent fluctuation in your home’s temperature will also affect your productivity. You will be unable to perform certain tasks and activities comfortably (e.g., cooking, cleaning, repairing, etc.).
Rain penetration can occur due to gaps or linings in the insulation material. Rainwater can penetrate the roofs, creating moisture and dampness. It will affect your house’s exterior. Plus, poor insulation may damage your furniture due to water seepage and excessive moisture during rains.
