Insulation can be easy to do wrong, and most homes we go into it has. Common mistakes are using the wrong product for the wrong purpose, wrong area or just installed improperly.
Often times vapor and moisture barriers are not taken into account, and most of the times the product has been installed in way in which it is doing little to nothing. Understanding how the home works as a system is crucial to properly insulate your home.
Another common mistake we see when clients look to upgrade their homes efficiency, is by upgrading windows or HVAC systems first. While these are great mechanical and ascetic upgrades they do little to improve actual home comfort or efficiency.
An important rule in the energy field is reduce before improve. This means to focus on your homes “shell” prior to upgrading mechanicals. Reducing what it takes to heat and cool your home, in turn will reduce the size of furnace or AC needed or even solar!
CNY Green Energy Solutions will advise our clients on which areas of your home need insulation the most and which will guarantee a fast return in not only comfort but savings.
