With the impending winter season just around the corner, you’ve hopefully started to get your heater ready for the coldest time of the year. Scheduling routine heating maintenance and ensuring that you have enough fuel on site are a few ways in which to do so. Just remember, though, that there are more factors to consider if you are hoping to enjoy true comfort throughout the winter season, some of which exist outside of your heating system itself. Your insulation in Everett, WA, for instance, plays a major role in the home heating process. If you have any cause for concern regarding the insulation in your home, remember to schedule your insulation services with the trained professionals on our staff.
What Insulation Does
Your insulation is responsible for stopping unwanted heat transfer into or out of your home. This means that, in the winter time, your insulation stops heat from transferring to the air outside. Heat is always going to attempt to move to a cooler climate. This is just the nature of heat transfer. Because of this, it is vital that you have the right amount of insulation in place, and that this insulation is of the right efficiency, rated with an R-value, to do the job right. We are happy to install additional insulation in your home as needed, but you must first recognize the signs that there is insufficient insulation in your home to begin with.
Signs of Subpar Insulation
If you have cold spots popping up in your home, despite the fact that you are running your heating system, you may be suffering the results of insufficient insulation in those areas. You may also notice that your heater is running for longer than it should have to in order to heat your home, or even that your heating bills have really skyrocketed when compared to years past. Whatever it is that tips you off to the fact that your insulation just isn’t getting the job done, let us know so that we can resolve the problem.
