Did you know that by having adequate home insulation, you can save money in the long run? Throughout our years of service as professional roofing contractors, we’ve seen just how insulation has helped our customers save on their energy bills.
This is, naturally, the biggest area where home insulation makes its presence felt. During the colder months of the year, we rely on our HVAC systems to keep our interior warm and comfortable. Of course, heat isn’t cheap, and it has a tendency to leak outside.
Insulation keeps this heat escape from happening. That’s because insulation, true to its name, is usually made from materials that don’t conduct heat well. This makes it difficult for the heat inside your home to leak out and helps your HVAC system maintain a comfortable temperature for less energy.
Sometimes, you just don’t want to deal with rooftop noise. The rain or hail pounding on top of your residential roofing can be noisy and disrupt sleep, another reason to have a well-insulated home. Most insulating materials don’t just work as heat barriers; some of them work as sound dampeners, too. These insulating materials can reduce rooftop noise generated by rain or hail, and insulation is, in fact, a necessary component of some roof types.
