Improving the energy efficiency of a building is very important, that’s why you should know all you can about it. One of the best ways to improve energy efficiency is by using insulation in various forms. Here are some insulation tips you can use to improve the energy efficiency of a building. 

Roof Insulation

Not every roof is insulated. Some building owners choose to install a polyiso roof insulation. This insulation is able to prevent heat from escaping out the top of the building, as well as prevent any moisture or air from getting in. By installing quality foam roof insulation you can vastly increase your energy efficiency.

Building Wraps

Another way to boost your insulation is to install a building wrap around the walls of your building. A continuous insulation solution such as this will pick up the slack that regular insulation leaves behind. It will allow air and moisture to evaporate or leave the wall cavity before it becomes a problem. This will drastically improve your energy efficiency.

Soffit

Soffit is a good way to counteract an insulated attic and prevent it from superheating your roof. By ventilating your attic with soffit, you allow the insulation inside to do its job without superheating your roof and potentially causing it to leak or break down.

Energy Efficient HVAC 

Your HVAC system is extremely important. From DIY duct sealing to a brand new HVAC, if your current system isn’t performing it’s best to get this professionally replaced. Install a new energy efficient HVAC and you are sure to improve your homes energy efficiency. For the best results perform regular duct cleaning and maintenance as needed.

Improving Energy Efficiency is Simple with These Insulation Tips

Insulation is one of the easiest ways to boost energy efficiency. Use these tips in combination to achieve the highest level of energy efficiency improvement from your insulation alone.
