Can Ceramic Coating Help Insulate My Home?
With energy costs consistently on the rise, it makes sense to have a multi-faceted approach to saving on energy costs. Some people may suggest shutting off lights in rooms that aren’t in use, or carefully regulating the use of your home’s HVAC system. While both of these are excellent suggestions that will help towards energy savings, making sure that your home is completely insulated is the number one thing you can do to help conserve energy and save on energy costs.
What Is Home Insulation and Why Is it Important?
Home insulation refers to using different materials or processes to reduce the amount of unwanted temperature change inside your home. In the warmer months, this means keeping your home cool and preventing the outside heat from entering. In the winter months, this means keeping your home cozy and comfortable. A well-insulated house will be very energy-efficient and need little additional heating and cooling to keep it comfortable year-round.
How much money you’ll be able to save by making sure your home is well-insulated depends on different factors like the size of your home, insulation methods used, and more. Over the last few decades, there have been great strides in insulation technology. That said, if you have an older home, the chances are you’ll need more insulation measures than someone with a much more modern home.
As part of a multi-faceted insulation approach, a homeowner should make sure their roof, floors, walls, doors, and windows all provide proper insulation. However, perhaps the most important part of the home to consider when spending money to insulate your home is its walls. For a typical house, it is estimated that 30 to 40 percent of heat is lost through the walls. The roof is second, accounting for about 25% of heat loss.
