Insulation & Heat Energy
In the winter, heat flows from your heated living space to the cold outdoors (or garages and attics). Heat energy can move through ceilings, walls and floors. In the summer, the reverse happens, and heat energy makes its way from outside, to inside your home.
Insulation is about slowing down the heat conduction/convection process. Insulation resists heat flow, and is rated with an "R-value". The higher the R-value, the more efficient the insulation. There are many types of insulation materials including fiber materials, foam and cellulose.
Blown insulation is a popular method, especially in existing construction. As a certified energy auditor, we can perform testing on your home to indicate where insulation may be needed. If there are any walls that require insulation, blown insulation is a non-destructive way to meat the need.
