Insulation reduces the transfer of heat into your home in the summer and out of your home in the winter, making your house more comfortable and reducing your energy bill. The reduction in thermal transfer reduces your dependence on the HVAC unit to maintain a comfortable temperature.

Undertaking an inspection of insulation in an open attic can be accomplished by a do-it-yourselfer, but inside walls and inaccessible attics and crawl spaces may be best left to a professional insulation contractor.

Insulation is generally made of cellulose, fiberglass, rock wool, polystyrene, urethane foam or vermiculite but alternative, environmentally friendly products—from hay bales to dirt to denim—are becoming increasingly popular. In addition, there is also reflective insulation that literally reflects radiant energy. No matter what the material, the goal is still the same: to reduce energy transfer from exterior to interior.

Homeowners must consider their climate zone when doing their insulation audit. The simple rule is, the more extreme your outside temperature from your comfort zone the more insulation you need.
