With winter’s arrival, it’s important to have a properly insulated home that has the ability to efficiently regulate the warmth indoors. Here are three signs to look for that point to an improperly insulated home.
Your Energy Bills are Expensive
One of the most obvious signs that your home isn’t properly insulated is that your energy bills are consistently high. The reason for this is that a well-insulated home is supposed to keep the temperature in your home at equilibrium, no matter the temperature outside. An improperly insulated home is not energy efficient and will spike your bill greatly due to working harder on regulating the indoor temperature.
You’re Finding Bugs in Your Home
Finding an abundance of bugs crawling around the inside of your house is another way you can really tell if your home has been improperly insulated. The way that bugs and other critters are entering your home is the same way that the air working to keep you warm or cool is escaping and causing your energy bill to spike.
The Rooms in Your House are Different Temperatures
If you’ve noticed that some rooms in your house are extra chilly and that other rooms are quite a bit warmer, this is another sign that your house has poor insulation. Warm air during the colder seasons and cool air during warmer seasons are escaping through the drafts in your home and causing the irregular temperatures inside. This is a waste of energy.
