With winter months just around the corner, you want to be sure your home stays cozy and warm when temperatures dip below normal. At Ortiz Heating & Air Conditioning, we know that much of your home’s comfort depends on whether you have sufficient insulation, holding warm or cool air inside where it belongs. Not only will proper insulation improve comfort levels, there are other benefits as well.
As trusted professionals in the repair and installation of heating systems, we know of at least 3 important reasons you may want to consider installing additional insulation in your San Francisco home.
Increased Comfort. As we’ve already mentioned, insulation can be far more beneficial than you know in keeping your home comfortable. Insulation in ceilings, under your floors and in the walls prevents cooled or warmed air inside your home from escaping, and also helps prevent drafts.
Noise reduction. When you live in the busiest areas of San Francisco, outside noise can be a nuisance. The more insulation you have in outside walls, the less noise you will hear from outside – and vice versa. Sufficient insulation will also prevent what goes on inside your home from being heard by those outside. If you want to reduce noise from room to room, make sure you have plenty of insulation in interior walls as well.
Energy savings. It’s a fact that the better your home is insulated, the less your air conditioning or heat will run, resulting in energy savings. Not only that, you are helping to protect the environment at the same time, because your HVAC equipment runs less. Imagine a comfortable home year round, and substantial savings on energy costs!
As San Francisco HVAC professionals, we know that in the United States about 46 million homes are not sufficiently insulated. If your home is 10 years old or older, consider additional insulation to increase your family’s comfort, and decrease your energy bill.
