The simplest most cost effective way for you to contribute to environmental health (and to the health of your wallet) is to reduce the amount of energy demanded by your HVAC system to maintain a comfortable environment. You can do this simply by improving the insulation effectiveness of your home or commercial building space.

Insulation reduces energy consumption, which means that less fossil fuel is burned to produce that energy. This, in turn, decreases the amount of polluting gases such as carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide emitted into the atmosphere. But it also means more of your hard-earned dollars are burned to produce that cooling and heating energy.

Home Insulation is not generally associated with pollution control, but it should be. Emission reduction is a significant benefit of insulating your home and should be a point of pride that your doing your part. Many of us recycle our garbage which gives us a recurring reminder that we’re doing our part. Don’t take for granted the positive effect your well insulated house has on both energy consumption and your living costs.

We thought some of you would like to know specifically how quality insulated homes and businesses contribute to a healthy environment:

  1. Energy Saving. If there is a high demand for electricity, natural gas, propane, and fuel oil in order to heat homes and buildings, the majority are producing energy through burning, a process that releases a high amount of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Using multifoil or other types of insulation is going to help reduce pollution emissions, which translates into making the environment healthier, and the air we breathe cleaner. Insulation is an important element which can successfully be used in the battle against global warming, and is an energy-efficient solution that will prove its performance in the long run as well.
  2. Carbon Dioxide. If multifoil or other types of insulation were to be installed in 4 million homes, the equivalent of the carbon dioxide that would be removed from the atmosphere would be equal to planting 667 million acres of trees. This is pretty impressive. A well-insulated house is very energy efficient and will need very little additional heating and cooling. Insulation helps keeping your home warm in winter and cool in summer. It improves thermal comfort by reducing the cold drafts and heat losses through the walls and roof. Our house will maintain a more stable temperature throughout the year providing a pleasant indoor environment to live in.

By insulating our homes, we reduce the demand for energy and burn less fuel, which helps combat climate change and protects the planet. Insulating the loft, walls and floor of your home is a great way to reduce energy bills every year from a one-off activity.

It is noted that residential energy efficiency is an appealing approach for emissions reductions, given evidence of greater cost-effectiveness relative to other strategies.
