Living through an Edmonton winter should give a homeowner a good idea on whether or not they need more insulation. The negative temperatures and invasive weather can take a toll on any home, but one with insufficient insulation will feel the negative impact even stronger. Heat is always moving, traveling from a warm zone to a cooler zone. This means that in winter, heat will leak from your home to the outside, making your central air system work even harder. Of course the reverse is true in summer, when the heat attempts to infiltrate your cooler home. Proper insulation will help keep the heat and cool from escaping your home – and lower your utility bill.
Ensuring that your Edmonton home is properly insulated will help keep your household both healthy and comfortable. It will also help keep your HVAC system running more efficiently and for a longer period of time. Since your central air won’t be working as hard to keep your home warm (or cool), you will also be spending less on electricity. If your home is not warm enough this winter, consider scheduling an assessment with an insulation professional. And if you have any problems with your heating, don’t hesitate to contact the HVAC professionals at Always Plumbing & Heating.
