Trying to get the best Insulation is very interesting! Not only does it help make your home warmer in the winter, but it also helps keep it cool in the summer.
Heat flows naturally from warmer to cooler spaces. In winter, the heat moves directly from all heated living spaces to the outdoors and adjacent unheated attics, garages, and basements – wherever there is a difference in temperature. During the summer, heat moves from outdoors to the house interior.
To maintain comfort, the heat lost in winter must be replaced by your heating system and the heat gained in summer must be removed by your air conditioner. Insulating ceilings, walls, and floors decreases the heating or cooling needed by providing an effective resistance to the flow of heat.
So how do you get the best insulation?
A simple way to understand how to get the best insulation starts with thinking about an insulated flask or Thermos which helps keep your drinks hot or cold. This works by providing an insulated layer between the drink and the outside air. Getting the best insulation for your home has the same effect helping to keep your interior conditions comfortable all year round.
Uninsulated homes have large gaps or cavities between the exterior and the inside walls. By filling these cavities with the best insulation material the outside air can’t pass through the cavity as easily and it prevents the inside air escaping outside. The best insulation acts as a barrier to the flow of heat. It keeps the heat contained when it’s cold and keeps it out when it’s warm.
There are many insulation products available in a variety of materials which can be used for different applications around the house. Safe-R Insulation provides a range of insulation systems for use in your walls, roofs and floors. Contact us about our range today!
