Energy efficiency simply means using less energy to achieve the same or a much better result.
Maximizing your home’s energy efficiency starts with minimizing air leakage. Reducing air leakage in your walls, floors, and ceilings can drastically cut down on the amount of heat lost in winter or gained in summer. Without proper insulation, up to 10% – 20% of heat is lost through wooden floors, 15% – 20% through uninsulated walls, and 25% – 35% through ceilings. Insulating your home is an essential step for improving your energy efficiency and reducing energy costs. If you’re constructing a new home, renovating an existing house, or improving the thermal performance of your current home, choosing the most effective insulation should be a top priority.
