Where Is That Draft Coming From – Why Insulation Is Key To A Warm Loft Room All Year Round
Is your loft room cold during the winter and hot during late spring and summer? If so, you could begin avoiding using that valuable extra space in your home because it is just too uncomfortable. And, for many families, we need as much additional space in our homes as we can get.
If your loft room isn’t as comfortable as you would like, the problem could be your insulation. Or lack of it, for that matter. Homes that are properly insulated offer increased comfort as inside temperatures are much more consistent throughout the year regardless of the outside temperature.
Keeping that in mind, we are going to take a look at some of the benefits of insulation and why it is key to a warm loft room all year round. Let’s get started:
Benefits Of Insulation
Saves You Money- insulating your home is a great investment that can save an average of 30% on energy costs. In fact, paying a professional contractor to add insulation to your home can pay for itself within just a few years.
Increases Your Home’s Comfort- one of the most common reasons for adding insulation is comfort. Homes that are poorly insulated are much more vulnerable to outside temperatures. Loft rooms are especially vulnerable to outside temperatures and adding insulation is a good way to ensure these rooms stay temperate and comfortable.
Protects The Environment- not only does insulating your home save you money, but it can also help save the environment. A properly insulated home uses a lot less energy to heat and cool. This means your home won’t need to make as much energy, thus reducing pollution caused by the power plants.
Protects Your Heating And Cooling Equipment- proper insulation allows your heating and cooling equipment to run less often. This can mean less wear and tear and less maintenance and repair.
Indoor Air Quality- your loft room plays an important part in your home’s indoor air quality. Outdoor pollutants can enter your home through air leaks caused by poor air sealing and under-insulated spaces. Insulating your home can prevent these pollutants from spreading throughout your home. This means your family can breathe easier and enjoy cleaner indoor air.
