The heat is finally rising but despite the time of year, unwanted air from the outside is most likely creeping its way into your home in all kinds of places you wouldn’t expect. The cold air seeps in during the winter and the warm air reeks all kinds of havoc on your roof in the summer.
Meanwhile, research shows that 90 percent of homes in America are under insulated.
Taking proactive measures to protect your homes, such as implementing proper sealing and insulating techniques, is one of many ways you can keep unwanted air out.
Reasons for helping make energy saving choices may vary from one homeowner to another, but the facts are clear and speak for themselves.
“If all U.S. homes were fitted with insulation based on the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code, residential electricity use nationwide would drop by about five percent and natural gas use by more than 10 percent,” said Dr. Jonathan Levy, a professor of environmental health at Boston University School of Public Health, in a news release.
Levy is also the lead researcher on the Boston University team that investigated insulation use in America, focusing on how increased insulation could help reduce energy use and cut carbon dioxide and other pollutants from being released into the atmosphere.
