Why is Adequate Insulation in So Important?

When you think of insulation, you may automatically think of keeping the heat that you pay for within in your home. Considering how warm our climate is for much of the year, this may lead you to underestimate just how important your insulation in Farmington, NM really is. Just as putting cold liquids in an insulated thermos proves, though, your insulation is just as important for keeping heat out of your home as it is for keeping heat in during the cooler time of the year. To learn more about insulation, or to schedule any insulation services with a trained professional, just call upon the experts at Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.

Most homeowners are at least familiar with batt insulation, which is the fluffy pink material that you may see in exposed beams or unfinished attics and basements. This is a very good insulation option, especially when installed as the home is constructed. However, it is important to remember that there are a lot of different efficiency levels when it comes to insulation, and that you really need the input of a professional to ensure that yours is of the right insulation for your home. If your insulation is too efficient, it is not going to do you much good. It will not allow for sufficient heat transfer, and can put unnecessary strain on your HVAC system as a result. If it is not efficient enough, you will encounter issues where too much heat transfer is allowed. Insufficient insulation or too low of an R-value will result in wasted energy, and can even allow airborne pollutants to make their way into your home.

For areas which are not accessible but which require additional insulation, there are other options to consider. Blown-in insulation, for instance, requires only that a small hole be drilled into your wall. Through this hole, our technicians can blow insulating materials into the space between your walls. No matter what you may need to improve your insulation and to make your home a more efficient place to live, the technicians on our team are here to ensure that the job is completed properly.
