It’s one of the coldest winters in recent memory, and with that comes the sky-high cost of heating your home. That price can be even more painful if your home isn’t properly insulated or winterized.
An energy saver specialist tries to help homeowners figure out why their homes get unbearably cold, while the cost to heat it each month is hundreds of dollars.
A common problem is in the basement. Often there are uninsulated floors – or basement ceilings. So there is cold air in the basement. Warm air rises and leaves the home through the attic. That pulls the cold air from the basement and pulls it up into the house.
Another common issue is that heating ducts are often not insulated. That means the hot air that should be getting up onto the main floor is leaking out into the basement. Spray foam insulation is the best value for the dollar to fix this problem. That way the heated, or conditioned air stays where it’s supposed to.
Fixing insulation problems can save up to 40% on your heating bill. For more information on improving home insulation, contact Custom Insulation.
