Cellulose insulation comprises recycled paper, which makes up nearly 80%-85% of the total insulation material. It is highly eco-friendly and serves as an efficient and high-standard alternative to other insulation materials such as fiberglass and more. Cellulose insulation makes use of paper that might otherwise sit in the landfills or disposal yards, producing greenhouse gases. Overall, it is one of the most popular insulations.
You might already know that insulation reduces the conduction of heat and cool in the house. This means that the cellulose insulation restricts the energy/heat from escaping your house, such as keeping the conduction of hot and cold air to a minimum. This keeps the temperatures consistent, energy bills low, and creates a comfortable living environment.
Living in a house without insulation during the summer could mean residing in an overheating oven. Contrary to popular belief, insulation is equally important in summer as it is in winter. The material acts as a barrier and prevents the outside heat from entering your home. On the other hand, since the material is non-conductive to a great degree, the loss of cool air is minimal. This ensures a consistent temperature. Cellulose insulation covers the key areas of your house to increase the cooling efficiency of your cooling appliance or HVAC system in the house.
Here are the most common places to install cellulose insulation in summer for higher cooling efficiency.
Attic heat can warm up the entire house from top-to-bottom. This can cause a loss of cool air and a higher running time for the HVAC system. To keep your house cool, the HVAC system will work longer, which will increase the electric bills. Insulation prevents the escape of cool air through the attic.
For instance, if your duct passes from an outside wall or through the heating attic, your house will lose cool air. Insulating the ductwork ensures that this doesn’t happen.
We expose our garages to more heat than we do our homes. Therefore, the garage is one of the most overheated places during peak summertime. The hot air can enter the house, making it highly uncomfortable for you and unlikely for the cool air to stay.
Walls are the most important option next to the attic. The gaps and material in the interior walls allow the loss of cool air to the outside while letting the hot air enter the home. Insulating walls can ensure that the loss of cool doesn’t occur.
