CLEVELAND, Dec. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- USA Insulation warns that 90 percent of American homes are under-insulated. This warning comes as winter approaches and the US Energy Information Administration released statistics that a colder winter could mean an average increase of $635 in heating costs over the winter months. This works out to over $100 in additional costs for each winter month. Under-insulation means that as homeowners are forced to crank up their heaters in a last ditch effort to keep warm, the heat escapes and leaves rooms cold and drafty.
"Winter is the most expensive time to heat a home and for under-insulated homeowners, this can mean spending an extraordinary amount of money per month in heating costs," stated Patrick Pitrone, President of USA Insulation Franchise Corporation. "By adding highly efficient USA Premium Foam Insulation to problem areas in the home before winter hits, homeowners can ensure they keep energy costs down."
Insulation settles over time and some homeowners choose incorrect types of insulation for their homes, both of which contribute to under-insulation issues. However, these issues are easily remedied. Families can stay warm efficiently all winter long by being mindful of insulating key areas in the home with USA Insulation's premium insulation products! These key areas are:
Attics are often under-insulated and are responsible for a majority of heat loss in many homes. Heat rises, and according to the Department of Energy, by adding sufficient insulation in the attic, homeowners can prevent heat from escaping and significantly reduce heating costs.
The Crawl Space
Usually the culprit of cold floors, the crawl space of a home is often overlooked when it's a fundamental part of the home's thermal envelope. A sufficiently insulated crawl space is essential to maintaining a comfortable and energy-efficient home and also provides resistance to mold, insects and other unwanted guests.
Whole House Insulation
By adding or updating whole home insulation, homeowners can easily maintain a comfortable environment that isn't affected by external factors like extreme weather. To achieve this, it's important to include the insulation of the attic and crawl space since they play an integral role in keeping the home warm and efficient. And when it comes to the home's walls, insulating with USA Premium Foam® Insulation will provide highly effective results against the cold since it's 35% more efficient than other types of insulation products. As a result, homeowners can stay comfortable during the winter months (and longer), without spending a fortune on their heating bills.
