Think of insulation as a blanket for your home. When you’re cold, you cover yourself with a blanket; the blanket blocks out cold air while keeping your body heat in, making you more comfortable. Insulation works the same way, blocking the outdoor temperature while keeping your conditioned air inside.
When your home has enough insulation, the baking Arizona heat outside can’t get in and the cool air from your air conditioner can’t get out. Because no hot air is sneaking in and no cold air is sneaking out, you’re not losing money to wasted air conditioning.
However, research indicates that as many as 90% of homes are under-insulated and that having insufficient insulation can have the same impact on your heating and cooling bills as leaving a window open year-round. Upgrading your insulation can decrease the amount of energy your HVAC system uses by up to 15%, which may not seem like much but can make a major impact on your monthly power bills.
