The simple function of insulation is to keep cold or warm air where it belongs, inside or outside, depending on the time of year. Right now, even though daytime temperatures in Texas are generally mild, cooler nighttime conditions return this weekend. As the mercury falls into the 30s, those evening to morning hours will feel brisk outside, and perhaps even inside depending on the air leakage in your particular residence.
Homeowners in new construction often feel secure that a new home means they’re adequately insulated. But that’s not necessarily true, Even homes built in the last five years can have cracks and crevices that allow warm air to escape the living spaces.
Every home has several key areas where air leakage can occur. Starting from the bottom up, homes built with basements can lose air through those areas as well as through crawl spaces. Air leakage can occur with exterior walls, windows and doors too. Finally, the attic is another area of concern where heat loss can occur.
Air leakage in these areas can drive up heating costs, make your home or certain areas of it less comfortable, and lead to moisture damage. As an Owens Corning Preferred Contractor, we recommend the Owens Corning lines of home products, including insulation. Most notably, Owens Corning EnergyComplete Whole Home Insulation and Air Sealing System is worth reviewing for its multiple benefits in a Texas home.
EnergyComplete goes beyond providing exceptional insulation to keep a warm house from losing heat. This product also reduces noise from outside activity, including traffic and neighbors. More importantly, the EnergyComplete option from Owens Corning filters out pollutants and allergens that can affect your respiratory system and trigger allergy problems.
