How Insulation Conserves Energy

Insulation reduces heat transfer through a surface such as a wall, attic, duct or roof. In a well-insulated house, less warm air escapes from the house in the winter, and less cool air in the summer, which means that less energy is needed for heating and cooling. By improving the insulation of older buildings, you can reduce your annual heating and cooling bill by up to 30%.


Insulate Walls, Floors and Attic

The outer coating of your home is a barrier that prevents the air temperature in the room and outside from equalising. The better the walls, floors and roofs are insulated, the less energy the heating and cooling systems need to heat or cool the air in your home. 

As the temperature rises, it is especially important to insulate the roof to keep warm air in a cold climate.

Seal Air Leaks

Even walls with good insulation can allow warm or cool air to escape through cracks and crevices around windows and doors. Broad houses require more energy for heating and cooling than narrow houses. Save energy by sealing to avoid air leaks. In older homes, it is practically impossible to close the house too tightly, and in most cases, due to the construction used, after sealing the largest leaks, there is still enough fresh air to maintain good ventilation.

Duct Insulation

In households with central heating and air conditioning systems that push air through the duct system, leaky ducts can reduce performance by up to 20%. Seal and insulate all ducts in your home so that warm and cold air reaches where it should reach as efficiently as possible. Good insulation is all the more important as the channels lead through unfinished areas, such as attics or basements. Finally, seal the areas around the registers so that no air escapes behind the wall or under the floor.

Reflective Insulation

While most insulation materials reduce heat transfer through physical blockage, reflective insulation, also known as a radiation barrier, is installed in the attic. It reflects the heat radiated from the hot roof to the attic and prevents it from entering the living space below. Although reflective insulation has some value in reducing heating costs, its main purpose is to keep the house cool in a hot climate.
