Summer heat is almost upon us, and Tennessee can get fairly hot and humid during the season. You will probably be turning up your HVACs to keep the house cool during this time, but are you sure your energy is not being wasted? Does your house have the energy insulation needed to avoid wastage?
Why Energy Efficiency Is Important
Energy efficiency involves creating the right insulation at home to avoid energy wastage through the house’s walls and floors. Having an energy-efficient home is beneficial for the following reasons:
- Reduced Cost – Energy wastage directly increases energy consumption and its subsequent costs, making it more expensive to keep the house cool against the summer heat.
- Environmentally Friendly – Energy efficiency is a sustainable and responsible form of energy consumption as it reduces greenhouse gases and optimizes energy production and distribution.
Therefore, it not only helps the environment but also saves money on utility bills.
How to Achieve Energy Efficiency at Home
There are several ways you can achieve energy efficiency at home, and some of the best techniques are as follows:
1. Blow-In Insulation
Blow-in insulation is popular in Tennessee and provides a thermal blanket to prevent energy from leaking through several parts of the house. It is one of our most requested services because it has quicker installation and also helps dampen sound transfer from one room to another.
2. Reflective Insulation
Reflective insulation is an extremely effective method of achieving energy efficiency. Our walls and floors have the potential to absorb heat, resulting in it leaking outside. Reflective insulation adds a surface to homes that reflect back the heat instead of absorbing it, preventing it from leaking outside.
3. Solar Attic Fans
Using Solar Attic fans is one of the most sustainable methods of achieving energy efficiency because they capitalize on solar energy to maintain desired heat. They have become increasingly popular in Tennessee in recent years due to their advanced ventilation and optimized energy consumption.
They are installed in the attic or rooftops to give them open access to sun rays to power up.
To sum up, energy efficiency has both environmental and cost benefits, making it an attractive home enhancement. You can use blow-in insulation, reflective insulation, or solar attic fan to achieve it to improve your energy consumption during the summer and save on utility bills.
If you want to get any of these three energy insulation systems installed in your home, please contact us. Now is the right time to get it done so you have the system ready right when the heat takes over.
