Upgrade Home Insulation, And Keep Cooling Bills Under Control

As an Arizona homeowner, you might not think much of insulation. However, you should upgrade home insulation because it is actually an energy saver in any weather. During the winter, insulation will keep in the heated air produced by your HVAC system safely inside, while the cool conditioned air will remain indoors during the summer months.

Leaky walls without insulation of the proper R-value can cost you up to 20 percent more than you would otherwise pay. While there are many different kinds of substances you can use to upgrade home insulation, the R-value of the insulation is what tells you how good the material is at reducing heat flow and saving you energy dollars.

In order to determine where to upgrade home insulation, it’s important to check your attic, basement, crawl spaces and walls for any small cracks or holes through which conditioned air can escape. After fixing these with the addition of caulk, weatherstripping and the like, locate all the places where your home isn’t currently insulated, as well as where it is insulated. Then, make a note of both the kind of insulation and its R-value. This energy assessment will allow you to buy the right insulation upgrade when you visit the hardware store.

Alternatively, you can have a professional contractor do a proper energy assessment with confidence. The licensed technician can start the process to upgrade home insulation and save you energy and money in the long run.
