Why insulate my home or building?
Heating and cooling account for 50% to 70% of the energy used in the average Canadian home. Inadequate insulation and air leakage are leading causes of energy waste in most homes and buildings.
Insulation saves money, makes your house more comfortable by helping to maintain a uniform temperature throughout the house, and makes walls, ceilings and floors warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
The attic is one of the most important areas of a home to insulate. According to the Department of Natural Resources (NRCan), up to 65% of a home's energy loss is through the attic.
How can I tell if I need to add insulation?
In the winter:
- walls cold to touch
- cold floors
- high heating costs
- uneven heating levels within building
- mold growing on walls
In the summer:
- uncomfortably hot inside
- high cooling costs
- ineffectiveness of air conditioning system
- mold growing in basement
