Is Your Home Well-Insulated?

Some homeowners seem to think that insulation is a top concern only during the winter season, which is obviously very, very mild in this part of the country. After all, it is during the winter that residents of colder states than ours bundle themselves up in order to insulate their bodies from the cold air, right? Some homeowners seem to think that insulation is a top concern only during the winter season, which is obviously very, very mild in this part of the country. After all, it is during the winter that residents of colder states than ours bundle themselves up in order to insulate their bodies from the cold air, right? Well, this is true, but the fact of the matter is that the insulation in your home plays a vital role all year long. Insulation doesn't simply keep heat in one's home. It serves to prevent the unwanted transfer of heat in both directions, meaning that it is just as important during our long, hot summers, as it prevents heat from making its way into your house. If you don't have sufficient insulation in Boca Raton, FL, you are going to run into a few different issues.
  • High cooling costs are the most obvious sign that you have subpar insulation in your home. If even one area of your house is poorly insulated, you are going to wind up running your air conditioner overtime as you try to evenly cool that house. The more you use your AC, the more it is going to cost you. In this way, poor insulation actually forces you to pay more for a lesser cooling performance!
  • Poor indoor air quality can also result from subpar insulation in one's home. The primary function of insulation is obviously not to protect your indoor air quality. However, it is an added benefit of having sufficient insulation throughout your home. If there is thin insulation in any area, pollutants from the air outside can more easily infiltrate your living space.
  • Discomfort is the most problematic of all issues caused by subpar insulation. The bottom line is that you should be completely comfortable in your home when running your AC. If heat is easily transferring into your home due to poor insulation, this just won't bet the case.
