Weatherproofing and Insulation – Lucas Contracting

W hen your home was constructed, insulation was used within the walls as well as the roof. This is done to help keep the heat out during the summer and the heat in during the winter. Without any kind of insulation, the temperature inside would be the same as it is outside – which can make for a very uncomfortable situation in many cases.

Over time your insulation is going to settle and it will not be as effective as it was when it was first installed. Plus, in many situations, the insulation was never as thick as it should have been. As a result, you may be losing about 60% of your heat – it is slipping through the walls and ceilings. When this happens, it can have a significant impact on your energy bill because your AC and heat are working two or three times as hard as they need to be to make up for this heat loss.

A licensed technician can come in with an infrared sensor and show you the heat coming in through your walls. You may be surprised to see that through your ceiling and walls, you have got a lot of heat seeping in that you did not know about.
