Heating and Insulation
During the cold winter months of Michigan, keeping your house warm is essential for having a comfortable living temperature. However, running your furnace all winter can be expensive and harmful to the environment. Learn how you can take advantage of heating and insulation in your home to keep costs low and the heat high.
When you use the expertise of Applegate Home Comfort, you are working with a team that knows what it means to be a Michigan homeowner. Don’t wait until it’s too late to have a maintenance check on your furnace. Just because it wasn’t used all summer does not mean it is in prime condition to warm an entire house. Additionally, this can get very expensive to heat your home all winter. Learn the benefit of home insulation and feel the difference.
Benefits of Home Insulation
Over the last few decades, insulation has become common in new homes. However, not all insulation is made the same, and if your home is older than 30 years there is a chance that the insulation may need to be replaced.
Having up-to-date insulation for your home can make all the difference in saving on utility costs and helping the environment through reduced energy use.
Insulation was designed to help regulate your home’s internal temperature, which keeps you and your loved ones staying warm through the winter season. When insulation is not properly installed or maintained, it is not properly holding in heat .
Some of the most common forms of home insulation include:
- Blanket: batts and rolls
- Concrete block insulation
- Foam board/rigid foam
- Insulating concrete forms
- Loose-fill/blown in
- and more!
While there are plenty of options that vary both in cost and purpose, it is important that you consult a heating and insulation specialist when updating, or installing insulation so you get the most from your home. Cheaper is not always better, and insulating your home can help save on energy use, making it well worth the investment.
Some of the benefits from proper insulation include:
- Fire safety
- Environmental impact
- Sound control
- Energy savings
Insulation is not a one size fits all, so take the time with Applegate Home Comfort tolearn what can give the most back to your home.
