How Does Home Insulation Work for Toronto Homeowners?
Posted in Attic Insulation, on November 16, 2020 By Admin
As fall slowly turns to winter, and temperatures begin to plummet, Toronto homeowners become more and more aware of their home insulation – both for indoor comfort and energy efficiency.
The fact is, there’s much more to home insulation than just piling up new material in the attic. For those considering home insulation in Toronto, it’s quite important to do it right the first time.
Simply put, good insulation delivers better energy efficiency. When professionally installed, good insulation results in dramatic utility savings. And finally, seasonal comfort is much improved.
For the best long-term results, insulation professionals recommend three components in every installation – a quality insulation product; effective air sealing; and appropriate air ventilation.
Home Insulation in Toronto
The idea behind home insulation is to keep the home airtight – keeping warm air inside during winter and keeping cool air inside during summer. By blocking air leakage and replacing poorly performing insulation, the improvements are immediately noticeable.
Quality insulation benefits the entire home. A comprehensive installation allows the heating and cooling system (HVAC) to work efficiently, consuming less energy, and reducing utility bills. But for optimum performance, a home must also be sealed and ventilated.
How Insulation Works
When insulation, air sealing, and ventilation are combined to work as a “system” the benefits are conspicuous throughout the year. The key, of course, is to have the work done professionally – and that includes relevant repairs and retrofits to provide optimum performance throughout.
- overall heat loss will be prevented in the home
- the heating/cooling system will operate at peak
- good ventilation ensures controlled air moisture
- proper air sealing effectively blocks air leakage
- air circulation and air quality is much improved
Good Insulation Delivers
Today, many professionals recommend spray foam insulation for its high performance (especially for the attic). Spray foam dramatically improves energy efficiency while very significantly reducing energy consumption. The result: major savings on heating and cooling bills.
Spray foam insulation seals and insulates better than any comparative product. The installation is considered a “premium” but the long-term savings on utilities make for a great investment. In many cases, the dollar savings realistically “pay down” the original cost outlay.
