Insulation is a quiet hero for your energy bills. Without making a single sound or moving in any way at all, insulation allows your home to retain the warm and cold air that other, noisier, moving pieces produce. This function helps to lower your energy bills by allowing your heating and air-conditioning unit to work less to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. Indeed, in the fight to keep your home comfortable and your bank account intact, insulation is one of your most underrated teammates.
…Unless it wears down. Then it becomes one of your biggest enemies in the fight against high energy bills. Worn-out insulation really doesn’t do much of anything, meaning your heating and AC unit will have to run even more to keep your home at the same temperature that it would with good insulation. Once this begins to happen, it’s about time to schedule an insulation replacement with Southern Home Performance!
