Insulation and Ventilation
Proper insulation and ventilation aren’t always at the forefront of a homeowner’s mind. In fact, people probably don’t think about either of them at all. But the way in which your house keeps in and lets out air is one its most important, although underappreciated, aspects.
The Benefits of Proper Insulation and Ventilation
Vents allow air to escape when it needs to, while insulation prevents air from escaping when it shouldn’t. When your house is well ventilated and insulated, particularly in your attic space, it can save you money on energy bills, help upkeep the quality of your home and prevent issues that result in costly repairs.
Insulation is important because it keeps warm air inside of your house in the winter, and cool air from your air conditioner inside in the summer. Without a properly insulated house, the air you are paying to heat or cool is constantly escaping, increasing your energy bills every month.
Ventilation, on the other hand, is the way in which air is allowed to escape from your home. This is especially important in places like the bathroom, where humid air that is produced when taking a shower needs to be properly directed outside. Allowing humid air to remain in your home or your attic can cause your structure to rot and mold to form.
A properly ventilated and insulated house is a healthy house.
